Physics faculty Ethan Minot and Janet Tate are part of a team of 6 investigators who have been awarded an NSF grant to acquire a $700,000 instrument for materials science research. The instrument, known as a physical properties measurement system (PPMS), will be located in the Kelly Engineering Building and will support materials research across campus, and across all of Oregon. The PPMS allows researchers to study material properties (electrical/optical/magnetic) at extreme temperatures and magnetic fields.

Congratulations to Janet Tate!
