CPMI senior graduate student, Priya Raman, was awarded the Dorothy M. and Earl S. Hoffman Scholarship award at the 61st International AVS meeting last week. The prestigious honor and cash prize was awarded for her pioneering work in magnet pack development for use in High-Powered Pulsed Magnetron Sputtering (HPPMS/HiPIMS). She is also a named inventor on a patent recently submitted by CMPI on this device, which will become a product of the Kurt J. Lesker Company. All of us here are very proud of her accomplishments, drive, and spirit. Go Priya!
