Tu-Uyen presented her work on synthesis and characterization of mixed metal oxide nanoparticles at the Fulton Undergraduate Research Initiative (FURI) symposium (update: and won an ‘Outstanding FURI Poster Award’!). Here, Tu-Uyen (right) is pictured alongside her poster and mentor, Diane (left).
The Crozier group contributed several papers to the Microscopy & Microanalysis conference held in St. Louis, MO during August 4-10. Diane and Ethan gave contributed talks in the “Imaging and Spectroscopy of Beam Sensitive Materials” and “Advanced Characterization of Energy-Related Materials” symposia, respectfully. Tara, Kartik, Josh, and Diane all presented posters highlighting their recent research representing a wide range of symposia. Both Kartik and Josh received best poster awards in Physical Sciences for their awesome work (they won awards on different days)! Peter gave invited talks and distributed awards during the Plenary session. Ethan was also involved with organizing the inaugural M&M Pre-Meeting Congress for graduate students, postdocs, and early-career professionals. *(Thank you Ian MacLaren for several of these photos!)
Ethan and Diane presented posters at the North American Catalysis Society meeting (NAM 25) in Denver, CO.
The Crozier group attended the Materials Research Society Spring Meeting here in Phoenix, AZ. Below is a photo of Diane presenting her recent research during one of the poster sessions. Ethan and Qianlang gave talks/posters as well.
The Crozier group and friends went to the Superstition Mountains to hike Peralta Trail. The rock formation behind us is Weavers Needle.
Group photos for the new school year! The first few attempts were in the sun but we finally managed to take some in the shade.

Diane attended ScienceOutside the Lab: The Future of Nanotechnology, a week-long workshop in Washington DC exploring the intersection of science and policy with an emphasis on nanotech.
The Materials Research Society (MRS) annual spring meeting was held in Phoenix, AZ this year for the first time. Peter, Ben, and Qianlang gave talks about their research. Ethan and Qianlang also presented posters.
Congratulations to the new Dr. Ben Miller!! He just completed his Ph.D. so Peter hosted a BBQ at his house. Ben will now work for Gatan, Inc. as an in situ product specialist and will continue to work closely with ASU.
Congratulations to the new Dr. Liuxian Zhang! He completed his Ph.D. so he treated the group to a celebratory dinner!
Winter Break 2015
With finals over, the group went to the Phoenix Rock Gym for an adrenaline rush.
Peter ACTUALLY made it to the top! Wow!
Diane thought it was time for the group to have a fancy new kettle for boiling water for our daily coffee and tea times! Christmas came early this year!
Many of the group members went to the First Friday event in downtown Phoenix and toured the Phoenix Art Museum.
Peter, Qianlang and Ben enjoyed an excellent view of Pittsburgh atop the Duquesne Incline.
A nice morning view of Mount Hood from hotel room at Microscopy and Microanalysis 2015
Ethan and Ben gave poster presentations in the M&M 2015 pre-meeting congress for in-situ electron microscopy.
Enjoying a break for lunch.
Peter presented awards at the meeting’s plenary session.
This is proof that Will is a contributing member of society.
Enjoying Portland’s rose garden.
Peter and Will enjoyed an evening with friends and colleagues in Seattle following the Nion open house.
The group went hiking in Sedona, AZ and had a picnic at Oak Creek Canyon.
Ben, Qianlang, Will and Peter visited Prague, Czech Republic for the 2014 International Microscopy Congress.
Members of the group made the most of a day of great weather by visiting the Phoenix Desert Botanical Garden’s Chihuly in the Garden exhibit. The garden was in bloom and the food was great! March, 2013 Spring in Phoenix means perfect weather. The Group took full advantage by having a picnic and hiking at Fish Creek Canyon, in the Superstition Mountains just east of the city.
