PROFESSIONAL PUBLICATIONS

. Russell J. Beal, ******* *****, and Barrett G. Potter, Jr. "Elevated-

Temperature Structural Transformation and Optical Transmission

Behavior of KH2PO4 Single Crystals," in Proc. of Journal of the

American Ceramic Society '09, 93 [4] 1089-1095 (2010)

This Project was worked for the Sandia National Laboratories, a

Lockheed Martin Company for the United States Department of Energy

RELATED COURSEWORK

Graduate Level:

Scanning Electron Microscopy, Semiconductor Processing, Optical

Spectroscopy of Materials, Thermodynamic Characterization of Materials.

ACADEMIC PROJECTS

. Thermal Stability of Optical Transmission in Potassium Dihydrogen

Phosphate (KDP) crystals. ( Master's Thesis)

o The aim of the project is to correlate thermally induced changes in

medium and long range structure of Potassium Dihydrogen Phosphate were

correlated with the development of micro crack induced optical opacity

of single crystal specimens. The phenomenon of inhomogenity in the

structural phase transformation of KDP single crystal was established.

Raman spectroscopy was utilized to study the structural phase

transformation, and the single beam optical spectroscopy established

the opacification. "Elevated-Temperature Structural Transformation and

Optical Transmission Behavior of KH2PO4 Single Crystals," in Proc. of

Journal of the American Ceramic Society '09, 93 [4] 1089-1095 (2010)

o The surface flaws and local environment induced changes in the

medium and long range structure of Potassium Dihydrogen

Phosphate with the development of micro crack induced optical

opacity in single crystal specimens was studied. The effect of

the surface topography on the stability of the KDP under thermal

treatment was established. Optical characterization of the

material was performed using Raman Spectroscopy, single beam

optical transmission, profilometry. Scanning Electron Microscopy

was used to characterize the surface and the cross sections of

the specimen.

. Precipitation hardening of Cu - 4Ti - Cd alloy. ( Jan 2008)

o Cu - 4Ti- Cd was characterized and precipitation hardening of Cu

- 4Ti - Cd alloy has been conducted, it was tested for its high

strength ( using Brinell's and Vickers's hardness tests) and

electrical and thermal conductivity and it was successfully

proved to be possessing high strength and electrical and thermal

conductivity which is commercially more economical than the Cu -

Be alloys which were continued to use for rolling tubes and rods

but were limited due to the toxicity and high cost of

production.

PROGRAMMING SKILLSET

. Programming Languages: C, C++, Data Structures using C, Matlab.

. Database: Oracle - 9i

ACCOMPLISHMENTS

. Bagged third prize for technical design contest at National Institute of

Technology - Warangal.

. Organizer and active participant of the Technical Event Ayas - 07 and

Ayas - 08 at The Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University.

. Presented a paper on applications and manufacture of metallic foams at

National Institute of Technology- Warangal, India.

. Secured a position in the top 2% of the State level Engineering Entrance

Exam.
