Three faculty and a student in the Department of Physics and Astronomy presented their research
at the 25th International Conference on the Application of Accelerators in Research and Industry
(CAARI 2018) in Grapevine, Texas, in August. Prof. Heather Watson gave a talk titled “Diffusion
in sulfide and sulfate minerals with planetary applications.” A presentation titled “PIXE Analysis
of Synthetic Turf” was given by Prof. Michael Vineyard. Prof. Scott LaBrake and Sajju Chalise
(’19) gave an oral presentation titled “Distribution of Heavy Metals Along New York’s East River.”
Sajju Chalise also presented a poster at the conference titled “Proton Induced X-ray Emission
(PIXE) Analysis to Measure Trace Metals in Soil along the East River in Queens, NY.” Much of
this research was performed in the Union College Ion-Beam Analysis Laboratory.
