    SUMMER 2011 RESEARCH STUDENTS

    As every year a number of students have taken advantage of our undergraduate summer research opportunities:

    May 2010: Jamie Powell (with hat) lures our students away from their work with observations of the sun just outside the physics building. Students from left to right: Victoria, James R., Ben S., Colin, and Aaron.

  • Victoria Bishop (1st year Engineering) worked with Peter Marzlin on Counterfactual quantum communication protocols. This technique uses the wave-particle duality of quantum light to communicate securely by not observing it. You can learn more about this by playing quantum mine sweeper.
  • Zachary MacDonald (1st year Science) worked with Brandon van Zyl on Mathematical physics
  • Colin MacDougall (2nd year Computer Science) worked with David Pink on Numerical simulation of oils
  • Aaron Farrell (3rd year Physics) worked with Brandon van Zyl on Mathematical physics
  • Kyle Hackett (3rd year Physics) worked with Brandon van Zyl on Semiclassical quantum corrections in low dimensional Bose and Fermi system
  • James McDowell (3rd year Physics) worked with Karine Le Bris on Fourier transform spectroscopy of HCFC141-b. This project consists into studying the infrared absorption cross-section of this greenhouse gas in order to allow its retrieval from space borne missions.
  • James Roberts (3rd year Physics) worked with David Pink on Oils in food processing
  • Ben Scheifele (3rd year Physics) worked with Peter Poole on Computer simulations of heterogeneous nucleation
  • Ben Jantzen (May 2010 physics graduate) worked with Michael Steinitz on Setting up an x-ray diffractometer
