Schubert earns CAREER award
Dr. Eva Franke Schubert has received a CAREER award from the National Science Foundation. Her $400,000 grant, "Chiral Nanostructure Hybrid Materials for Applications in Terahertz Resonator and Magnetic Storage Devices," will support research on electrical, optical, and magnetic properties of hybrid nanostructure materials prepared by glancing angle deposition for the next five years.
The Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Program offers the National Science Foundation's most prestigious awards in support of junior faculty who exemplify the role of teacher-scholars through outstanding research, excellent education, and the integration of education and research within the context of the mission of their organizations.
Schubert gained her Ph.D. degree in 1998 and her diploma degree in 1994, both from University of Leipzig in Germany. She spent her postdoc time, from 1999 to 2000, with the Department of Electrical Engineering at University of Nebraska-Lincoln. After returning to Germany, Schubert joined the Leibniz-Institute for Surface Modification in Leipzig and served in various positions. She joined the UNL EE faculty in 2006 and her research interests are in the fields of ion beam processing and material fabrication for nano-electromechanic, magnetic and optical device applications.
