6/1/2021 – NSF Science Nation Video on our research

NSF put together an NSF Science Nation video on our discovery of axis-dependent conduction polarity, and our use of the amazing NSF-PARADIM crystal growth facility at Johns Hopkins University to help us grow Re4Si7 crystals.

The PARADIM user facility is an amazing, one of a kind user facility. We highly recommend it to all researchers interested in crystal and thin film growth.
