NNSA CMaES Project

Consortium for Materials and Energy Studies (CMaES)

  • On March 27 – 28, 2015, the project co-sponsored 9 students to visit the Department of Chemistry at University of Texas at San Antonio. Students meet with the Chemistry Club and visited their research facilities and graduate study program.
  • From March 15-21, 2015, Mr. Abdul R Siddiqui, Moiz Sheikh, Muhammad Aun conducted FT-IR, Raman, and AFM characterization at TSU, Nashville, TN. Here are the pictures taken during training.
  • Tennessee State University (TSU) and Prairie View A&M University (PVAMU) held a mini modeling training workshop for PVAMU students. Dr. Lizhi Ouyang and Sitaram Aryal gave multiple sessions from March 9-13, 2015. More than 20 students participated in training. Here are the pictures taken during training
  • Consortium held its first kick off meeting at Allen University campus on Feb 20, 2015 Friday. Here are pictures taken during meeting
  • During teh spring 2015, PVAMU attracted 17 students from Chemistry department, Biology department, Chemical Engineering department and Mechanic Engineering department to this project. This includes 15 undergraduates and 2 graduate students. Among them, 9 are female students and 6 are male students.
  • After intensive two-year incubation, the planning meeting for Consortium for Materials and Energy Studies (CMaES) was officially kicked off at Tallahassee, Fl on June 20, 2014. Current consortium is the combination of two previous consortia — “Investigating and Characterizing Catalytic Activity in Novel Materials and Processes using Experimental and Computational Techniques” and “Consortium on Experimental and Computational Studies of Matter under Extreme Environments”. The representatives from the following members were present at the meeting:
    • Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL, lead national lab)
    • Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL)
    • Florida A&M University (FAMU, lead University)
    • Prairie View A&M University (PVAMU)
    • Tuskegee University (TU)
    • Tennessee State University (TSU)
    • Southern University (SU)
    • Benedict College (BC)
    • Morehouse College (MC)
    • Allen University (AU)
