Congratulations to Dr. Debjoy Mallick, a former HEMI graduate student, on receiving the Best Early Career Oral Presentation Award of the American Physics Society’s Topical Group on Shock Compression of Condensed Matter (SHOCK19) held in June. Mallick received this award for his presentation “On the Role of Texture and Precipitate Orientation in Spall Failure of a Rolled Magnesium Alloy.” His presentation discussed novel measurements of the failure of a model binary magnesium alloy (Mg-9Al wt %) using a laser-driven shock compression apparatus developed at the Johns Hopkins University under the ARL MEDE Collaborative Research Alliance (MEDE CRA).
The APS Shock Compression of Condensed Matter conference focuses on fundamental science and applications of matter at extreme conditions, including shock-induced materials behavior, plasticity, phase transitions, and chemical reactions, among other topics. In addition to the scientific program, the conference offers social events, networking, career development opportunities, an exhibit hall, and more. This year was the 21st Biennial Meeting, and took place in Portland, Oregon from June 16 to June 21.
Current HEMI graduate students Jason Parker and Gary Simpson also received travel awards to attend this conference.
