As my third year at Texas A&M concludes and after this first long and challenging struggle, I can finally say I am on track with my tenure. I have a long way to go still. A lot of people have been crucial in achieving this modest success. I would like to thank my students Ryan Collier, Mitch Rocheleau, Chris Gassaway and Ronny Eckels for all their help and support for believing in the cause and allowing me to continue with all the original goals. Their valuable help with research, fabrication and teaching has allowed me to focus on new goals. Now that they have graduated from A&M and will have continue with their own professional lives, their void will be felt and it will be hard to find such great collaborators.
