The researchers surmised that in addition to the bonding between the atoms, this random motion may also contribute to the barrier at the crystals' edges, and hence the roughness in the crystal film."If the principles we have uncovered can be applied to the atomic scale, scientists will be able to better control the growth of thin films used to manufacture electronic components for our computers and cell phones," Cohen said.The paper's co-authors are former postdoctoral associate Rajesh Ganapathy, now a faculty member at the Jawaharlal Nehru Centre for Advanced Scientific Research in Bangalore, India, and Sharon Gerbode
and Mark Buckley, both graduate students.
Of the three musicals in which he's currently involved, one project, three years in the making--a 15-woman a cappella show, This World in a Woman's Hands--has recently moved forward with funding from the Wallace Alexander Gerbode
and William and Flora Hewlett Foundations' Emerging Playwright Award, the James Irvine Foundation and the NEA's Access to Artistic Excellence program.
