M. Amanul Haque - associate professor of mechanical engineering, Penn State University Park

Book Title: Annual Review of Material Science Vol. 26, 1996

Author: Matthew Tirrell, Elton Kaufmann, Joseph Giordmaine, and John Wachtman

Book Description:

My pick is a journal article published in the book mentioned above. The article is written by R. P. Vinci and J. J. Vlassak, and is titled "Mechanical Behavior of Thin Films" in pages 431-462. It was my first journal article reading as a graduate student. It was so inspiring that I had a (then) wild dream of co-authoring a paper like this with them. Later I came to personally know these two role models also as wonderful individuals and I feel I am closing in on the dream.
