Steven Jacobsen, CDAC Academic Partner from Northwestern (and former Barbara McClintock Postdoctoral Fellow at the Geophysical Laboratory) has been awarded a Packard Fellowship for Science and Engineering. Jacobsen is among 20 scientists selected nationally this year to receive this grant. The funding will support development of Jacobsen's nano-pulsed GHz-ultrasonic method to study atomic-scale, physical properties of superhard materials targeted for future technological applications
