Sykesville resident’s research earns national award, trip to Romania


TOWSON, Md. (June 26, 2006)—The National Society of Physics Students Awards Committee has named Anthony Davidson, of Sykesville, Md., as the recipient of its 2006 Outstanding Student for Undergraduate Research Award.

Davidson, who begins his senior year at TU this fall, is a researcher in the Materials Research Laboratory in the Department of Physics, Astronomy and Geosciences. Working under the supervision of Dr. Rajeswari Kolagani, he investigates novel nanoscale electronic phenomena in thin films of a class of materials called perovskite metal oxides.

The Society of Physics Students (SPS) honored Davidson for research that reveals novel effects induced by light and electric currents resulting from nanoscale phase separation. The award also recognizes his contributions to the society as president of the TU chapter.  

Davidson and another student will represent the SPS of the United States at the International Conference of Physics Students in Bucharest, Romania, August 14-21.

The award includes a $500 personal stipend, a $500 contribution to the TU SPS chapter and an invitation to present a paper at an American Institute of Physics member society meeting or a SPS zone meeting.

Davidson is a 2003 graduate of South Carroll High School. He is the son of Anthony and Elizabeth Davidson.
