Scheare Prize Graduate Research Competition Completed: Congratulation to Winners!
Jack Crewse and Yunsheng Qiu, Ph.D. students in physics, are winners of this year’s Schearer Prize, the Missouri S&T Physics Department’s annual graduate research competition. It is held in memory of Laird D. Schearer, the department’s first Curators' Professor of Physics, and rewards graduate students for outstanding research performed during the course of their graduate study.
Jack Crewse won 1st place for his work on quantum critical behavior of a three-dimensional superfluid-Mott glass transition. Yunsheng Qiu was awarded 2nd place for his work on the anomalous Hall effect in n-type CrxSb2Te3 topological insulators. Congratulations!
The Forty-Seventh Annual Harold Q Fuller Undergraduate Research Competition Completed: Congratulation to Winners!
Society of Physics Students in Argonne
Last weekend, April 14th, the Society of Physics Students took a tour of Argonne National Lab.
From SPS to Sigma Pi Sigma
We celebrated on Apr 4th the induction of 17 of our best undergraduate students into Sigma Pi Sigma, the honor society of the Society of Physics Students. Congratulations!
Department of Physics welcomes new postdocs
Dr. Luigi Bagolini (left) comes to us from Rome, Italy, and will be working with Prof. Julia Medvedeva. Dr. Martin Puschmann (right) from Chemnitz, Germany, will be working with Prof. Thomas Vojta. We wish them a wonderful and productive time here in Rolla.
Dr. Julia Medvedeva receives The Faculty Excellence Award!
Dr. Julia Medvedeva, professor of physics, was among 4 faculty members at Missouri S&T who were honored with the Faculty Excellence Award on Feb. 13th. The award recognizes faculty members who have demonstrated sustained excellence teaching, research, and service and carries a monetary stipend funded by industry and alumni contributions. Congratulations!
Congratulations to Schearer Prize winners
Basu Lamichhane (right), Chandra Adhikari (center), and Ahmed Ibrahim (left), Ph.D. students in physics, are winners of this year’s Schearer Prize, the Missouri S&T Physics Department’s annual graduate research competition. It is held in memory of Laird D. Schearer, the department’s first Curators' Professor of Physics, and rewards graduate students for outstanding research performed during the course of their graduate study.
Basu Lamichhane won first place for his fully differential study of capture with vibrational dissociation in p+H2 collisions. Chandra Adhikari won second place for his work on long-range interaction of hydrogen atoms and oscillatory tails. Ahmed Ibrahim won third place for his Monte Carlo simulations of the disordered three-color quantum Ashkin-Teller model. Congratulations!
