Congratulations, Stelian!

On Tuesday, October 13th, Stelian Pintea successfully defended his PhD thesis entitled “Interfacial Structure of Mica in Electrolyte Solutions”. The work studies mica under different aqueous salt solutions using surface X-ray diffraction. The use of area detectors allowed Stelian to measure a huge dataset, which in turn allowed him to model the structure of the solid liquid interface. The defense took place at the Radboud University in Nijmegen, where former and current colleagues attended. We wish Stelian and his family all the best for the future.
