A Small Gift to Dr. Loh Makes a Big Hit

UMD president Dr. Wallace Loh (center) receives a set of personally engraved gold-coated silicon wafers, key components of semiconductor and micro-machine fabrication. The wafers, created by Maryland NanoCenter staff, shows logos of the other Big Ten Schools, of which University of Maryland is the newest school, around the central disk.
