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...
Many of today’s most interesting jobs need advanced physics skills. But many engineering and other undergraduate programs only require a year of physics. If you want to work in the state of the art in many fields—laser technology, optics, semi-conductors, nuclear energy, nanofabrication,...
Several Illinois Tech physicists contributed to the most recent results from the Daya Bay neutrino experiment, which is measuring the neutrino flavor oscillation parameter θ13 to world-leading precision. They include Assistant Professor Bryce Littlejohn, Vice Provost Christopher White, and postdoc...
Jeff Wereszczynski, assistant professor of physics, won a prestigious Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Award from the National Science Foundation. He won for his proposal “The Effects of Post-translational Modifications and Histone Variants on Chromatin Fiber Dynamics.” Wereszczynski’s...
Jeff Terry, professor of physics, spoke on the panel “Nuclear Security: After the Iran Deal, What’s Next for Nuclear Security?” at the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists’ 6th Annual Clock Symposium at the University of Chicago on November 16. Other panelists were Sharon Squassoni, director and...
A number of Illinois Tech physics people are among the winners of the 2016 Breakthrough Prize in Fundamental Physics, which was awarded on November 8 to five global teams that conduct neutrino oscillation experiments. A $3 million prize will be shared among 1,377 scientists on the five...
Daniel Kaplan, professor of physics, presented the invited talk, “Overview of Muon Cooling,” at the 2015 COOL15 International Workshop on Beam Cooling and Related Topics. The workshop was held at the Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility in Newport News, Va.
This summer, Daniel Kaplan, professor of physics, presented talks on “Antimatter Gravity with Muons” at the Workshop on Signals for Nonminimal Lorentz and CPT Violation (LVS’15) from June 19-20 at Indiana University, Bloomington and at the 3rd International Workshop on Antimatter and...
Master of Health Physics student Eric Galicia is one of two winners of this year’s Stony Brook University Flame Challenge. The challenge, sponsored by the American Chemical Society and the American Association for the Advancement of Science and now in its fourth year, calls on scientists to submit...
