Professor of Physics Ann Silversmith attended the International Conference on Luminescence in Wroclaw, Poland. She presented a poster with three coauthors: Hamilton students Alexandra Huss '14 and Kevin Rovelli '15, and Professor Daniel Boye of Davidson College.
The poster reported results from Huss's senior thesis and Rovelli's summer 2014 research. It was titled "Fluorescence dynamics in sol-gel silicate glasses containing chelated rare-earth complexes." Silversmith was also a co-author on a second presentation "Pulsed upconversion at pore surfaces in Er3+, Yb3+ doped sol-gel glass."
