Shiladitya Chatterjee Wins IM Flash Competition

Posted: Mar 19, 2018

Congratulations to Shiladitya Chatterjee, PhD, (pictured center) who won the 2018 TechTalks IM Flash competition between Brigham Young University and the University of Utah, marking the very first time that the Department of Chemistry has won this annual event!  Chatterjee is a 3rd year graduate student pursuing his PhD in Analytical Chemistry. His areas of expertise include microfabrication, surface characterization, and chemometrics (mathematical analysis of chemical data).

Out of the copious number of students who submit abstracts to this competition each year, only five people were chosen to present recent advancements in their areas of research: three from the University of Utah and two from Brigham Young University.

Chatterjee’s research submission was entitled “Breaking through memory barriers with applications of 3D XPoint/Optane—Fabrication and Analysis of Phase Change Memory for 3D XPoint Memory using Low Energy Ion Scattering (LEIS).”
