Nicholas Glavin, John L. McLucas Basic Research Award Recipient – Honorable Mention winner

Nicholas Glavin, a senior materials scientist, with the Air Force Research Lab’s Materials and Manufacturing Directorate at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio, uses AFRL’s custom magnetron sputtering system to fabricate and design new nanomaterials for Air Force applications Nov. 2, 2021. The system is capable of synthesizing materials down to the thickness of only a few atoms, where at that length scale, new and exciting properties emerge for future electronics and sensors. Glavin received the John L. McLucas Basic Research Award – Honorable Mention, as part of the 2021 Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) awards announcement. He has been working with a team exploring the fundamental science behind two-dimensional materials.
