Hsaing-Hsi (Sean) Kung, former graduate student in Physics & Astronomy, has received the American Physical Society's 2020 Richard L. Green Dissertation Award in Experimental Condensed Matter or Materials Physics.
Sean, whose dissertation is entitled "Collective excitations in the antisymmetric channel of Raman spectroscopy," did his Ph.D. work under the supervision of Prof. Girsh Blumberg.
This award recognized doctoral thesis research of exceptional quality and importance in experimental condensed matter or experimental materials physics. The annual award consists of a monetary prize, a certificate, and expenses to attend, give an invited talk, and accept the award at the APS March Meeting.
Once again we get to say congratulations Sean and excellent mentoring Girsh!
