ChemMatCARS 2009 summer employee Janet Soltau was one of 100 DOE-funded undergraduate researchers selected to present their posters at a competition on November 8 and 9 at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. Her poster was titled “Silver Nanoparticle Monolayer Surface Morphology.”

Janet is presently a senior majoring in physics, math, and education at the University of Vermont; she plans to become a science teacher.

Her work at ChemMatCARS, conducted with Binhua Lin, K.I. Kim, and Brian Leahy of the University of Chicago, was supported by the Pre-Service Teachers program of Argonne’s Division of Educational Programs.
