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 ...
Frechette Authors Book on Tibetan Migrants
Luce Junior Professor of Asian Studies Ann Frechette has authored Tibetans in Nepal, The Dynamics of International Assistance among a Community in Exile (Berghahn Books, 2002). The book explores the influence of foreign aid organizations on the lives of Tibetan refugees in Nepal. More ...
Back to the Classroom
Hamilton faculty members are going back to the classroom, not as teachers but as students. In a two-day workshop, faculty were introduced not only to cutting-edge technology available but also to the latest research in teaching and learning and how to incorporate oral presentations into the classroom. This overview will aid them in developing and teaching the new sophomore seminars, which will be introduced this fall. More ...

Katherine Hankowski '05 and Anna Arnold '04
Lehman and Summer Students Study Neurotransmitters
Among the 90 students participating in the summer science research program are Katherine Hankowski ’05, Anna Arnold ’04, and Karen Meagher ’04. The three students are working under the direction of Associate Professor of Biology Herman Lehman and Associate Professor of Chemistry Ian Rosenstein, studying two neurotransmitters found in the nerve cells of the Mandura Sexta caterpillar. The group is attempting to prove that these neurotransmitters do, in fact, exist together, but have been approaching the problem from different angles. More ...
Lubi Kutua '04
Kutua '04 Building NMR
Lubi Kutua ’04, a physics and math major, has dedicated 10 weeks of his summer vacation to science research under the direction of Assistant Professor of Physics Gordon Jones. Kutua has been working on a theory that many medical scientists are currently researching, involving the use of MRIs. Scientists hope that they will be able to use polarized helium gas to complete tests on patients that could previously only be done by use of the MRI. Kutua has been building a device, called a nuclear magnetic resonator (NMR), that will measure the amount of polarized helium gas in an area. Kutua had taken an electrics class previously that he enjoyed, so he approached both Professor Jones and Associate Professor of Physics Brian Collett about doing summer research. While research is probably not in Kutua’s future plans, he feels this was a very beneficial experience. More ...
Joe Smith '04 works on dribbling skills with the campers
Tom Murphy Hosts Continental Basketball Day Camp
Over the previous two weeks the Margaret Bundy Scott Field House was the home to almost 200 boys for the annual Continental Basketball Day Camp at Hamilton College. Head men’s basketball coach Tom Murphy is the camp director and was joined by assistant coaches at Hamilton College, Stan Evans, Randie Torgalski. The one-week session for boys entering grades 5-8 ends August 2, with a one-week camp for boys entering grades 9-12 began Monday, August 5. The campers worked on individual skills and station drills in the mornings, play full games, attend lectures and swim in the afternoons. More ...
