  • Measurement of Material Thickness Using X-ray Attenuation 

    Gaerlan, Oliver Mikhail H. (Department of Physics and AstronomyJudy and Bobby Shackouls Honors CollegeCollege of Arts and SciencesOffice of Undergraduate Research, 2016)
    The experiment will measure the thickness of a thin aluminum foil by sending a beam of x-rays through the foil. The thickness of the foil is related to the difference in the intensity of x-rays that pass through the aluminum ...
  • Phase Space Simulation of Relativistic Twisted Electron Mott Scattering 

    Madsen, John K. (Department of Physics and AstronomyJudy and Bobby Shackouls Honors CollegeCollege of Arts and SciencesOffice of Undergraduate Research, 2016)
    The question of how the spin of the proton and neutron arise from the angular momentum of the constituent partons is very pressing in the study of nuclear structure. As of yet, there has been no experimental method able ...
  • Determining the photometric capabilities of the CTIO 0.9-m telescope 

    Cameron Clarke
    Exoplanet detections are becoming more and more frequent as our ability to detect transits and Doppler shifted stellar spectra improves. Here, we report on eight observing nights at the SMARTS 0.9m telescope in Chile at ...
  • A Novel Spin-Light Polarimeter for the Electron Ion Collider 

    Prajwal Mohanmurthy (Department of Physics and AstronomyJudy and Bobby Shackouls Honors CollegeCollege of Arts and SciencesOffice of Undergraduate Research, 11/25/2012)
    A novel precision polarimeter will go a long way in satisfying the requirements of the precision experiments being planned for a future facility such as the Electron Ion Collider. A polarimeter based on the asymmetry in ...
