Philip Pearle
Pearle Gives Invited Talks at Clemson

Professor of Physics Emeritus Philip Pearle was invited to be the first speaker at the "New Frontiers in Quantum Foundations" conference at Clemson University, March 9-11.  He gave a technical lecture titled "Topics in Collapse," as requested and also first gave a talk, "Sociological Snippets," about his experiences in the field of foundations of physics over almost 50 years.  More ...

Physics Majors Present at MIT Conference

Four physics majors - Anne Vilsoet '11, Sarah Fobes '12, Erin Bessette-Kirton '12 and Eliza Jonathan '13 - attended the the fourth annual Northeast Conference for Undergraduate Women in Physics, held Jan. 14 – 16 at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.  Vilsoet and Fobes both presented posters based on research they did at Hamilton. Vilsoet's poster was titled "Simulating Type Ia Supernovae Rise-Time Curves" and Fobes presented "Porosity Reduction in rare earth doped sol-gel glasses."  More ...

Natalia Connolly
Connolly Funded for Research with Hubble Telescope

Assistant Professor of Physics Natalia Connolly was recently named the recipient of a $15,000 research grant from the Hubble Space Telescope Cycle E/PO Grant Program. Connolly’s grant is a companion grant to a research program on the phenomenon of strong-lensing, a program for which Connolly is co-investigator.  More ...

Physics Faculty Co-Author Paper

Ken Bart, Brian Collett and Phil Pearle (together with three coauthors from the University of Montana) published a paper in the American Journal of Physics in December (Vol. 78, pp. 1278-1289) titled "What Brown saw and you can too." In addition, they have launched a more detailed website. Bart is director of the Microscopy and Imaging Facility and Collett and Pearle are professors of physics.  More ...

Connolly Discusses Infrared Galaxies at ASNY Meeting

Assistant Professor of Physics Natalia Connolly gave an invited talk at the fall meeting of the Astronomical Society of New York (ASNY) on Oct. 23, at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.  More ...

Seth Major
Major Publishes Paper in Classical and Quantum Gravity

"Shape in an atom of space," a paper by Associate Professor of Physics Seth Major, was published in Classical and Quantum Gravity on Oct. 20. This paper, completed while visiting the Perimeter Institute in Waterloo, Canada, develops a model of how the discrete microstructure of space ( if one exists!) might leave its imprint in data from high energy particle scattering experiments.  More ...

Dr. Steven Strogatz speaks in the Chapel.
Strogatz Makes Sense of Chaos in Plant Lecture
The annual James S. Plant Lecture series continued on Sept. 20 with Dr. Steven H. Strogatz,  the Jacob Gould Schurman Professor of Applied Mathematics at Cornell University. His talk at Hamilton, titled “Getting in Sync,” focused on the nature of synchronization and what it means for our bodies, our politics, and our solar system. More ...
Jake Zappala '12
A New Spin on Polarization
In researching and experimenting with magnetic properties, scientists use beams of neutrons with all the same spin. They ensure that the neutrons are all polarized the same way with the help of an apparatus called a helium-3 polarizer. Jake Zappala ’12 is engineering a helium-3 polarizer test system for researching the diagnostic tools used in the polarization process. More ...
Edward Lamere '11
Edward Lamere ’11 Exploring Physics Forces
Four main forces govern the behavior of all matter in the world around us: gravitational, electromagnetic, strong nuclear and weak nuclear. Physicists believe that, at large enough energies, these four forces can be described by a single theory rather than four separate theories. Working for his second summer under Professor of Physics Brian Collett and Professor of Physics Gordon Jones, Edward Lamere ’11 is working on a project to increase the accuracy of an experiment that links the electromagnetic and weak nuclear forces called aCORN. More ...

Physics Team Sets its Sights on Synthesized Sky
Sitting in front of a computer screen, scientists spend hours staring at satellite images of outer space, searching for exploding supernovae. But surprisingly, visual identification is the main way that astronomical laboratories identify supernovae. Led by Assistant Professor of Physics Natalia Connolly, Ileana Becerra ’11, Anne Vilsoet ’11 and Will Eagan ’11 are creating a smarter computer program that will more reliably detect supernovae in satellite images. More ...
