A Calorimetric Study of the Metal Induced Crystallization of Amorphous Silicon

A Calorimetric Study of the Metal Induced Crystallization of Amorphous Silicon

By Taylor Grueser B.S. HTC Astrophysics, Class of 2015 My research in Dr. Martin Kordesch’s lab was on metal induced crystallization of amorphous silicon, specifically using Digital Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) to look at the crystallization temperature of aluminum-silicon samples. When I started, I didn’t know anything about this subject and […]

Making with Microcontrollers

Making with Microcontrollers

Justin Courtright B.S. Physics and Applied Mathematics, Class of 2016 Justin Courtright incorporated Arduino based microcontrollers into experiments in Dr. Eric Stinaff’s lab. This included a motorized x-y translation stage, a vacuum gauge, and a capacitive touch display. These will be used in low-temperature, high-resolution, photoluminescence experiments. He worked on […]

Re-evaluating the Thermonuclear Reaction Rate for the 18F(p,alpha)15O Reaction

Re-evaluating the Thermonuclear Reaction Rate for the 18F(p,alpha)15O Reaction

By Alex Carroll B.S. Astrophysics and Applied Mathematics, Class of 2017 I worked with Dr. Carl Brune to re-analyze the results from an experiment by Adremi Adekola (Ohio University Ph.D., 2009), on the thermonuclear reaction rate for the 18F(p,alpha)15O reaction. This process is important for the generation of energy and […]

Data Analysis in the Search for the Pentaquark

Data Analysis in the Search for the Pentaquark

By Max Camp B.S. physics, Class of 2016 I worked with Dr. Ken Hicks on looking for an exotic hadron called the pentaquark using data from the Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility in Newport News, VA. The pentaquark is made of quarks, just like the proton and neutron, however the […]
