The National Science Foundation has awarded $185,000 to Ithaca College for support of "RUI: Critical Dynamics of the Iron Pnictide Superconductors," which is under the direction of Associate Professor of Physics Matthew C. Sullivan.

This individual investigator award supports a project that will study how novel iron pnictide materials become superconducting in the hopes of understanding the underlying mechanism that creates superconductivity in these materials. The proposed studies will add to the knowledge of high-temperature superconductors and help fulfill the promise of attaining higher transition temperatures.

The project will also train undergraduate students in state-of-the-art crystal growth, characterization, and measurement techniques, and continues a collaboration between Ithaca College and the University of Maryland.
