Talking New Ph.D. in the Family

My wife finished her doctorate in chemistry. The dissertation title is/was Sol Gel Silicates: Thickness Control and Interactions with Cucurbituril[7] Complexes. It involved single molecule spectroscopy where they fix an individual dye molecule in place, shoot a laser at it, and see what happens.

She will be taking over as education director for the Stafford Air and Space Museum.
