Scott LaBrake, Senior Lecturer and Accelerator Manager in the Department of Physics & Astronomy, presented a poster titled “Construction of a Scattering Chamber for Ion-Beam Analysis of Environmental Materials in Undergraduate Physics Research” at CAARI 2012 the 22nd International Conference on the Applications of Accelerators in Research and Industry in Fort Worth, Texas, in August. A paper of the same title was submitted for the conference proceedings. Michael Vineyard, the Frank and Marie Louise Bailey Professor of Physics, and three Union students were co-authors on the paper.
Michael Vineyard, the Frank and Marie Louise Bailey Professor of Physics, gave a talk titled “Reflections on Computational Modeling in the Undergraduate Physics Curriculum” at the 2012 Summer Meeting of the American Association of Physics Teachers (http://www.aapt.org/Conferences/sm2012/) in Philadelphia, PA, in July.
The Fall 2012 Physics and Astronomy Colloquium series will begin on Thursday, September 13, at 12:40 pm (lunch at 12:15). The full colloquium schedule is online. All are welcome.
