Kayla Nguyen, '18 was awarded the $15,000 2018 “Use it!” Lemelson-MIT Student Prize for her inventive work in helping to develop new electron microscopy techniques. She developed software, tested and demonstrated a new type of scanning transmission electron microscope (STEM) camera, called an Electron Microscope Pixel Array Detector (EMPAD). The EMPAD camera sensor was based on x-ray detector technology pioneered by the Gruner research group in the Physics department. The Muller and Gruner research groups collaborated to adapt the technology for use on an electron microscope. For this project... Read more
