AU researcher uses grant to explore better way to make crystals for high-power laser
Yiquan Wu, an assistant professor of materials science at the Inamori School of Engineering at Alfred University, has received a grant for more than $518,000 from the Air Force Office of Scientific Research to study  a new approach to manufacturing crystals for high-power lasers. The high-power lasers would have potential applications for in fields such as laser-assisted manufacture industry, national defense, and laser-based inertial confinement fusion systems. http://www.alfred.edu/pressreleases/viewrelease.cfm?ID=8987
