I really enjoyed the cover story on quantum dots as they relate to breakthroughs in solar panels. It’s like getting an issue of Scientific American that relates to research being done at my old school. My only comment is, more articles like this, please! I’m sure Mines has enough going on to fill a much larger magazine. The level of detail, given your audience, could be increased, though leaving it as-is makes this easy reading for a plane ride.

Enjoyed the article on quantum dots. Very promising bench results. Also liked the news of new departments reflecting the diverse areas of research at Mines. Jay Gallagher MS ’79

Nice work on this edition, especially the article on Mark Lusk’s solar research. You made a highly technical topic much more accessible. Jon A. Leydens, associate professor,Division of Liberal Arts andInternational Studies,Colorado School of Mines
