By Yonry Zhu (B.S. Engineering Physics, Class of 2017) I worked in Dr. Arthur Smith’s lab during summer 2015 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 […]Read more ›

By Jacob Williamson (B.S. Astrophysics & B.S. Mathematics, Class of 2017) I worked with Dr. Ryan Chornock in Physics & Astronomy during the summer 2015 on classification of supernovae based on light curves and spectral data. Specifically, I focused on one supernova from 2005, SN 2005da, which was classified as a […]Read more ›
By John Theibert (B.S. Computer Science, Class of 2019) My 2015 internship with Dr. Julie Roche in Physics & Astronomy involved programming for the Deeply Virtual Compton Scattering (DVCS) experiment. Dr. Roche assigned me to create a series of C++ programs with the ultimate goal of incorporating the results into the […]Read more ›
By Heath Scherich (B.S. Physics, Class of 2018) I researched the theory of atoms in molecules during the summer 2015 with the help of Dr. David Drabold, Distinguished Professor in Physics & Astronomy. I was able to explore some of the tools that allow scientists to make detailed predictions about materials […]Read more ›
By Gabriel Reineck (B.S. Astrophysics, Class of 2017) I began my 2015 internship in Physics & Astronomy by reading parts of Barbara Ryden’s book, Introduction to Cosmology, suggested to me by Dr. Hee-Jong Seo. This is where I learned the basics of cosmology. The book showed me how to view the […]Read more ›
By David Overton (B.S. Physics, Class of 2016) My research in Physics & Astronomy with Dr. Carl Brune was on an 19F(p,n) reaction, specifically with regard to a few special discreet states of the resultant 19Ne. When I started, my knowledge of nuclear physics was limited to say the least. I […]Read more ›
By Miles Lindquist (B.S. Astrophysics, Class of 2017) The main goal of my 2015 internship in Physics & Astronomy was to optimize the process of photolithography. I worked with Dr. Eric Stinaff, who had been developing the process with students. With his help, I managed to find a process that developed […]Read more ›
