A Small Gift to Dr. Loh Makes a Big Hit
Maryland NanoCenter staff thank UMD president Loh for recent visit, commemorated with high-tech plaque
UMD president Dr. Wallace Loh (center) receives a plaque containing gold coated silicon wafers, key components of semiconductor and micro-machine fabrication. The wafers, created by the Maryland NanoCenter staff, commemorates Loh'stour of the NanoCenter's FabLab, a high-tech on-campus facility for processing nano-scale materials and components. Logos of the other Big Ten Schools, of which University of Maryland is the newest school, surround the central disk. Dr. Gary Rubloff, the NanoCenter's Director (right),Fab Lab staffer Thomas Loughran (below left) and Dr. Jim O’Connor look on.
A set of gold and silicon wafers, used in high-tech fabrication of semiconductors and micro and nano machines, is etched to commemorate the July 1 visit of UMD president Dr. Wallace Loh to the Maryland NanoCentre's FAB Lab, a state-of-the-art facility where such materials are commonly used. The large upper disk commemorates the University of Maryland's entrance into the Big Ten athletic conference. The logo of the University of Michigan -- where Loh earned a PhD in psychology-- lies to the left of that of Maryland's "Terp" logo.
