Paul Shelley ('92) and coworkers highlighted in Chem & Eng News article

Paul Shelley ('92) and two of his Boeing coworkers were the highlighted in an article about the handheld IR methods they have devised to analyze airplane composites. They developed methods to use handheld IR spectrometers for analysis of surface coatings and damage of the composite materials used in the new 787 Dreamliner. The article nicely brings their work to light.

Local UW REU Opportunity: "Hooked on Photonics"

The UW "Hooked on Photonics" REU program is again available for students.

Here is a little information about the program with a link and an attachment.
