I have served as the Research Advisor (or co-Advisor) for:
    1. 8 students who finished the Physics MS in  at Texas Tech.
    2. 11 students who finished the Physics PhD at Texas Tech.
        This includes a student who received the PhD posthumously. Also, I was Research Advisor to one student who finished all PhD requirements BUT the dissertation.
3. 5 who finished PhD's at the U. of Southern Cal. 1 in Physics, 2 in Electrical Engineering & 2 in Materials Science.
    4. 2 who finished the Physics Diplome (~equivalent to MS) at Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Lausanne, Switzerland.
