·        UH Researcher to study Electropolishing Effects on Particle Accelerators. College News, March 22, 2010.

To better understand the fundamental laws of nature, researchers worldwide utilize particle accelerators to explore high-energy interactions at the atomic level. By propelling high-velocity beams of protons, neutrons or electrons toward their targets, these instruments are capable of shattering the nucleus of an atom to reveal its subatomic structure—the very particles that make up matter. Dr. Brankovic is working to increase the speed at which particles spin inside these accelerators in order to improve energy efficiency and drive down cost. Ultimately, this will make the tool more widely available for research.

·        Dr. Brankovic presents work on Surface Morphology Evolution During Electropolishing at the 6th SRF Materials Workshop. February 24, 2010.

The meeting at the 6th SRF Materials Workshop in Tallahassee, FL where Dr. Brankovic presented his recent work on the Algorithm for Surface Morphology Evolution during Electropolishing was a great success. Dr. Brankovic's research on electropolishing of superconducting RF Nb cavities will enable further development of linear accelerators and high energy physics research.

·        ENNSG students attend the 2nd Annual Workshop on Electrochemistry at UT Austin. February 6, 2010.
