Undergraduate STEM Research Seminar: Austin Marler, Mechanical Engineering: This week's (virtual) Undergraduate STEM Research Seminar will feature Electrical Engineering major Austin Marler. Austin spent the summer working on an exciting new beam line facility being developed by physics professor Dr. Rajabali here at Tech. In his talk "TTU Ion Generator Development", Austin will describe his research directed at reconfiguring an existing cesium sputtering source into a laser ablation source.  The seminar will be this Friday, Oct. 16th at 4pm. It is geared for undergraduates from any STEM major, but graduate students and faculty are also encouraged to attend! Contact Dr. Holley ( for connection information to the Zoom session.
