Co-terminal physics/health physics student William Limestall (BS PHYS/MHP 4th year) and his team won the Civic Tech Challenge during ThinkChicago: Lollapalooza 2016. ThinkChicago: Lollapalooza 2016 was a three-day program (July 27-29) for university students to explore the Chicago tech...
Rachel Seibert, a Ph.D. candidate in condensed matter physics, won second place in a research poster competition at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) for her work on the silicon carbide (SiC) layers in tri-structural isotropic (TRISO) fuels. Seibert analyzed the integrity of TRISO nuclear...
Led by Physics Professor Dan Kaplan, the Illinois Tech Muonium Antimatter Gravity project has demonstrated picometer precision for its instruments, an important step in their quest to test the theory of gravity using antimatter in the form of muonium. Kaplan reported on this work at the Seventh...
Illinois Tech physics researchers are part of the Precision Oscillation and Spectrum Experiment (PROSPECT) awarded $3 million by the U.S. Department of Energy to search for sterile neutrinos. The Illinois Tech PROSPECT team includes Christopher White, vice provost for academic affairs and research...
A team consisting of Physics Professor Jeff Terry, Yong Yang (PI), University of Florida, and Yiren Chen, Argonne National Laboratory, has been awarded $489,135 by the U.S. Department of Energy for advanced nuclear materials research. They received the award for their proposal “Understand the phase...
Each year, the Chicago Area Undergraduate Research Symposium (CAURS) brings together nearly 130 undergraduate students in the fields of biology, chemistry, physics, engineering, mathematics, computer science, psychology, sociology, and humanities to participate in poster and oral presentations....
Physics graduate students Mattia Checchin and Martina Martinello have been working at nearby Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (FNAL) on a breakthrough technology for particle accelerators using superconducting radiofrequency (SRF) cavities. Their Ph.D. research on the electromagnetic and...
