A new paper, "Direct visualization of shear waves in micellar fluid using microspheres", authored by Cecille Labuda. Connor Tierney, Sunethra Dayavansha and Joseph Gladden has been accepted for publication in the Journal of the Acoustical Society Express Letters. The paper will soon be available online and will be inthe next print volume of the journal.
My honors student Connor Tierney was inducted into Sigma Pi Sigma, the physics honor society. Induction into Sigma Pi Sigma is by invitation only and invitations are restricted to students with excellent academic performance who have been involved in physics research or outreach.
Six students were inducted; Ryan Chapman, Davis Rogers, Emily Smith, Connor Tierney, Piero Bracamonte and Forrest Gamble. Forrest was unable to be present and was inducted in absentia.
Sunethra Dayavansha presented a research poster on her studies of the dependence of shear wave speeds in micellar fluids. Nazanin Omidi presented a research talk on her work in computed pressure fields in feline brain.
My honors student, Connor Tierney successfully defended his honors thesis on 04/23/2015.
Connor's thesis was titled "Direct Visualization of Shear Waves Using Microspheres." We have submitted a paper based on the work completed for this thesis.
