The National Science Foundation recently awarded
265,000 dollars to Missouri State University for a research for undergraduate institutions
grant. The research is focused on highly magnetic materials called ferromagnets. The project
will lead to the potential development of new spin-based devices such as ultrasensitive
magnetic field sensors, quantum-based logic and memory for high speed computation.
Training and skills acquired by students through this research will prepare them for employment
in high-tech industry, academic institutions and government and private research laboratories.
The principal investigators for this project include Kartik Ghosh, Pawan Kahol and Ram
Gupta. We are pleased to have Dr. Kahol and Dr. Gupta
with us today. And on the court to congratulate them is Vice President for research and economic
development, Dr. Jim Baker. Ladies and gentleman please acknowledge the effort of these two
Missouri State researchers. They are in the Bancorp South academic spotlight
