Congratulations to aerospace engineering graduate student, Supratik Datta on receiving three awards for the Spring 2008 semester. Datta is currently working in the area of smart materials and structures under the guidance of Professor Alison Flatau. His dissertation research explores potential applications of iron-gallium alloys (Galfenol) in sensors and actuators as a unique structural magnetostrictive material and focuses on experimental characterization and modeling of single crystal Galfenol at both macroscopic and microscopic scales.


Datta has been recently awarded the following:

1) Jacob K. Goldhaber Travel Grant ($400)

This award is intended to help defray the expenses incurred by graduate students who are traveling to scholarly, scientific, or professional conferences to present papers, posters, or other scholarly material.

2) SPIE/ASME Best Student Paper Award at the SPIE International Symposium on Smart Structures and Materials held in San Diego, CA, Mar 9-13, 2008.

His paper was titled "Magnetomechanical Coupling Factor and Energy Density of Single Crystal Iron-Gallium Alloys."

3) Ann G. Wylie dissertation fellowship carries a stipend of $10,000 and was awarded from the Graduate School at the University of Maryland
