2013 Year In Review
 
2013 was an eventful year for the Landes Research Group.
 
Our work on super-resolution imaging on  DNA sequencing  and  chromatography  were featured in the Rice News and other scientific news outlets.
 
We gained a new lab member Ben Hoener.
 
Our post-doc, Jixin Chen recieved a job offer as an assistant professor.
 
We gained 3 new PhD candidates, as Chad passed his masters defense in Applied Physics and Bo and Joey passed their qualifying exams in Chemistry.
 
Christy treated the lab to an awesome lunch at a Brazillian steakhouse, but only after killing it at her tenure talk!
 
Several members traveled to the National ACS Conference in New Orleans and Bo attended the Physics of Living Cells Summer School in Illinois.
 
On campus, students presented and won awards at the RQI Summer Research Colloquim, ARO Workshop on Surface Plasmons, Metamaterials and Catalysis, Smalley-Curl Birthday Celebration, and Optics Society of America Optics Across Campus.
 
Joey took the reigns as president of the Chemistry Graduate Student Association and Lydia helped organize the 2013 chemistry recruiting weekend.
 
We published 7 papers in total in 2013, with many more on the way for 2014!
