Dean of Admission Letter to Editor Appears in The Wall Street Journal
A letter to the editor by Richard Fuller, Hamilton dean of admission and financial aid, was published in The Wall Street Journal Aug. 5, 2002. Fuller wrote to add support to a WSJ article about the need for high school guidance counselors.

Chemistry and Physics Departments Work with Sol-Gels
Hamilton students Jessica Callahan ’04, Laura Crandall ’04, Emin Hodzic ’05, and Daniel Leonard ’03, have been spending the summer doing research with Associate Professor of Chemistry Karen Brewer. Their research has been done in conjunction with fellow classmates Daniel Allen ’04 and Stephanie Higgins ’04, who are working with Associate Professor of Physics Ann Silversmith. Brewer and her students have been making sol-gel glass, which is glass that is made from slowly grown chemicals infused with rare earth elements, as opposed to the more commonly created glass from sand. While the process is much longer (each sol-gel takes about three to four weeks to complete), it is believed that the optical quality of the glass made from chemicals is greatly enhanced. The correlation between the two groups is that sol-gels, when infused with rare earth elements, will glow under a laser light. Allen and Higgins have been running lasers through sol-gels created by Brewer and her students to discover aspects of “solid state physics.” More ...
