Student innovation at Rensselaer holds key to safer remote detection of dangerous materials
Date:2/28/2011

ing has created the possibility to obtain terahertz spectroscopic information from a distance, bypassing a key limitation of high terahertz absorption by water vapor in air.

A National Science Foundation Integrative Graduate Education and Research Traineeship (IGERT) fellow, Clough is deeply committed to his research activities. He received the Rensselaer Founders Award of Excellence in 2009, as well as the Rensselaer NSF IGERT Best Presenter Award in 2010.

Hailing from Albuquerque, N.M., Clough grew up immersed in science and technology. He inherited a love of research from his father, a retired chemist, and a strong work ethic from his mother, a retired professor of nursing. Along with his parents, Clough's wife, Kara, and older sister, Sandy, are rooting for him to win the 2011 Lemelson-MIT Rensselaer Student Prize. Clough said the idea for his innovation struck him while relaxing on the beach in Mexico during a winter vacation with his family. Outside the lab and classroom, he enjoys a variety of activities including playing soccer, snowboarding, and backpacking with his wife and friends.

Clough received his bachelor's degree in electrical engineering from the University of New Mexico. He joined Rensselaer as a doctoral student in 2007.
