Zhaowen Tang has won a DOE Early Career award to conduct an experiment in neutron beta decay to help resolve an existing discrepancy in the measurement of the neutron lifetime.
IUB physics graduate student Magda Andrade has won a GEM fellowship from the National GEM Consortium. As part of her GEM program, Magda will have an internship this summer in the Advanced Photon Source at Argonne National laboratory, where she will be involved in the development of cutting-edge instrumentation for time-resolved x-ray scattering and absorption experiments.
Physics Graduate Student Wins Year-Long Fellowship from the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science
IUB physics graduate student Clayton Auton has won a year-long fellowship from the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science to conduct a part of his PhD thesis research in Japan. Clayton is conducting various measurements toward a test of time reversal invariance in polarized neutron optics and is preparing a polarized neutron beam at the LANSCE neutron facility at Los Alamos.
IUB physics graduate student Gabe Otero has won a GEM fellowship from the National GEM Consortium. Gabe is conducting various measurements toward a test of time reversal invariance in polarized neutron optics and just returned from a successful measurement at the Japan Proton Accelerator Research Complex (JPARC) in Japan in polarized 139La, the target nucleus for this search.
Former Physics Undergraduate Will Become First to Complete New Quantum Information Science MS Degree Program
Former IU physics undergraduate Josh Apanavicius will soon become the first student to complete the new Indiana University MS degree program in Quantum Information Science. This degree program design was led by physics department professor W. M. Snow with help from many members of the IU Quantum Science and Engineering Center, was approved by the Indiana Commission of Higher Education in fall 2021, and started in fall 2022 with Josh as one of the first students.
James Peebles, the 2019 Nobel Laureate in Physics, to deliver first “Robert E. Pollock Distinguished Lecture”
James Peebles, the 2019 Nobel Laureate in Physics, will be delivering the first “Robert E. Pollock Distinguished Lecture” in Myers Hall 130 at 7:30 PM on April 5th. The title of his talk will be “Our Universe is Evolving”. Prof. Peebles will also be giving a Physics Colloquium on April 6th entitled “The Sociology and Practice of Physical Science” at 4:00 PM in Swain W. 119.
Two Physics Graduate Students receive Dissertation Year Fellowships from the College of Arts and Sciences
This year, for the first time in recent memory, two of our graduate students received prestigious dissertation year fellowships from the College. These fellowships are designed to provide support to students that will allow them to devote all of their time to research and writing (without, for instance, serving as an AI).
Jammel Brooks Wins Second Place in IUB Three Minute Thesis Competition.
Caryn Palatchi to join the IUB physics department as a tenure-track assistant professor in fall 2022.
1986 IU physics PhD Chang Kee Jung has won the 2022 Julius Edgar Lilienfield Prize from the American Physical Society. His citation reads :”For outstanding contributions and leadership in experimental neutrino physics, and for outstanding teaching and outreach, especially on the physics of sports."
Congratulations to Rebecca Barsotti, one of 65 graduate students nationwide to receive a fellowship through the Department of Energy's Office of Science Graduate Student Research Fellowship Program.
An international team of physicists led by researchers at Indiana University has announced the world's most precise measurement of the neutron's lifetime.
