Congratulations to our PhD student Pooja Thakkar who won the Shoulders-Gray-Spindt award at the 34th Vacuum Nanoelectronics Conference for her paper “Voltage-controlled three-electron-beam interference by a three-element Boersch phase shifter with top and bottom shielding electrodes”.

In this work Pooja contributed to the goal to manipulate electron waves to realize a novel electron diffraction imaging method. The work is a collaboration between the Paul Scherrer Institute and the Forschungszentrum Jülich and was funded by the PhD School of the Swiss Nanoscience Institute.

The SGS award was created in honor of the founders of the field of vacuum nanoelectronics to promote young scientist.
