Dr. Colin McMillen

Congratulations to Dr. Colin McMillen who was awarded the 2013 young scholar award from the American Association for Crystal Growth for “accomplishments in the bulk and epitaxial growth of oxide materials … spanning the growth of new lasing materials, the hydrothermal growth of the deep-UV non-linear optical crystals, and a variety of multifunctional crystals.” Colin earned his PhD here under the direction of Joe Kolis and currently directs the Molucular Structure Center in the chemistry department, and he is a quite active member of the COMSET group. Congratulations Colin!
