Dr. Pitonyak to Speak at Duke Conference

Dr. Daniel Pitonyak, assistant professor of physics, was invited to give a talk at the Workshop on Novel Probes of Nucleon Structure in SIDIS, e+e- and pp (FF2019) at Duke University in March. The workshop will bring together theorists and experimentalists to discuss new results with the goal of improving our understanding of the internal structure and formation of nuclear matter. Dr. Pitonyak’s presentation is “Higher-Twist Fragmentation Functions in Transverse-Spin Observables.”

Biology Majors Beidler and Wagner Present at Ecology Conference

Robbie Beidler ’18 and Haley Wagner ’18, biology, presented at the Mid-Atlantic Ecological Society of America Annual Conference at Rutgers University–Newark last month. Wagner presented her poster, “Effect of organic matter on an isoetid’s ability to change sediment redox potential,” which received honorable mention recognition. Beidler gave an oral presentation, “An investigation on how road salt impacts aquatic bladderworts.” Wagner worked with Dr. Rebecca Urban, associate professor of biology and director of environmental science, on her research and Dr. Urban and Aaron Stoler of Stockton University co-authored Beidler’s paper.

Dr. Keith Veenhuizen to Present at National Meeting in San Antonio

Dr. Keith Veenhuizen, assistant professor of physics, performed experiments at Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee in early January 2018.  These experiments explored the piezoelectric and ferroelectric properties of rotating lattice laser-induced crystals in glass.  Dr. Veenhuizen will present these results at the 2018 Annual Meeting of the Glass and Optical Materials Division in San Antonio, Texas in late May through two oral presentations: “Piezoelectric and ferroelectric properties of lithium niobate crystals lines laser-written deep inside glass,” and, “Fabrication of rotating lattice lithium niobate single crystal lines within lithium niobosilicate glass via femtosecond laser irradiation.”
