By Yonry Zhu B.S. HTC Engineering Physics, Class of 2017 I worked in Dr. Arthur Smith’s lab and designed a pulsed laser deposition system for fabricating semiconducting thin films. The system is meant to be a test bed for components that will ultimately be integrated into an existing molecular beam […]Read more ›
Chris Wolfe B.S. Physics, Class of 2015 Chris Wolfe developed a photolithography procedure in Dr. Eric Stinaff’s lab to produce micron (one millionth of a meter) scale metallic devices to ultimately use in the study of nanostructured materials. This involved significant effort to identify the optimal parameters to produce working […]Read more ›
By Sara Sand B.S. HTC Engineering Physics, Class of 2017 I spent about half of the summer in the lab with Dr. Martin Kordesch building rudimentary Stirling engines. I endeavored to build an understanding of the various types of Stirling engines, improve their efficiency, and gain laboratory and machine-shop skills. […]Read more ›
