Adam Summers has been awarded the 2018
Laser Technology, Engineering and Applications Scholarship by
SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics, for his potential contributions to the field of optics, photonics or related field. See our
news release for more.
We have been granted funding from the Department of Defense under the
Office of Naval Research. The grant, awarded to former K-State Physics assistant professor Carlos Trallero and current graduate research assistant
Derrek Wilson, will fund research to study the interaction of intense, long-wavelength, short pulses with solids and molecules. In addition, the proposal will allow the development of new techniques for the characterization of short pulses in this spectral region. Learn more from the
KSU press release.
Wednesday, 16 May 2018 is the International Day of Light. The UNESCO sponsored event provides an annual focal point for the continued appreciation of light and the role it plays in science, culture, art, and education. It will be celebrated by physicists attending CLEO that day, as well as in other OSA organized activities.
Following an internal search, the College of Arts and Sciences has named
Kristan Corwin as the new associate dean for research.
Since June 2017, Corwin has served as interim associate dean for research of the university's largest college, serving 22 academic departments, two ROTC programs, and two research centers. She succeeds Beth Montelone, who is now senior associate vice president for research. Corwin holds the rank of professor of physics and held the Ernest K. and Lillian E. Chapin professor in the Physics department. See more via the
KSU press release.
Teams led by three Kansas State University researchers have been
awarded National Science Foundation Major Research Instrumentation grants. The grants will provide more than $2.5 million to advance understanding of lipids, agriculturally significant gases and nanoparticles, as well as student training and regional research capacity. One project was proposed by our own Kristan Corwin and Brian Washburn. Another comes from our frequent collaborator in the Chemistry department, Christine Aikens.
