The March Meeting is the biggest professional physics conference in the world. All three students participated in the Physics Department’s 2015 Summer Undergraduate Research Program. Lucas Beving worked with Dr. Paul Shand and will present Phase Transitions in Nanostructured Mn 0.18TaS2. This research project was supported by a National Science Foundation (NSF) grant. Keith Doore worked with Dr. Andrew Stollenwerk and will present Tunneling Spectroscopy of Multi-shell Carbon Fullerenes in a poster session. This research was supported by another NSF grant. Byron Fritch worked with Dr. Tim Kidd and will present his poster on Van der Waals Interactions in Ultrafine Nanocellulose Aerogels. Byron’s research was supported by the UNI Physics Department.
