    Summer Science Academy in Experimental Physics PSSA Experimental Physics is a four week program that focuses on modern physics with an emphasis on hands on experience and laboratory work There is no requirement of a previous physics course although typically about half of our students have taken one prior to attending PSSA The Epoch of Reionization Astrophysicists are interested in tracing the development of large scale structure during the so called Epoch of Reionization the period in the history of the universe in which the first luminous sources turn on and ionize neutral hydrogen in their vicinity Prof Adam Lidz studies the theory of how to detect and gain information from radition emitted during this period Events Astronomy Seminar Detection of B mode Polarization at Degree Scales using BICEP2 June 4 2014 2 00 pm 3 00 pm Stefan Fliescher University of Minnesota DRL A6 Thesis Defense Aspects of Galileons June 9 2014 3 00 pm 5 00 pm Garrett Goon DRL 4E19 Condensed Matter Seminar September 3 2014 4 00 pm 6 00 pm Professor Anupam Sengupta MIT A4 or A8 Condensed Matter Seminar September 17 2014 4 00 pm 6 00 pm Professor Greg van Anders University of Michigan A4 or A8 Condensed Matter Seminar September 24 2014 4 00 pm 6 00 pm Professor Alberto Fernandez de las Nieves Georgia Tech A4 or A8 More Events News Scalable Chemical Sensors based on Graphene May 6 2014 A team led by Prof Charlie Johnson has published a study in the journal Nano Letters of an artifical chemical sensor based on one of the human body s most important receptors one critical to the action of anasthetics and painkillers Reappointed Director of LRSM Professor Arjun Yodh May 6 2014 Vice Provost for Research Dawn Bonnell is pleased to announce

  • Astronomy Seminar: Detection of B-mode Polarization at Degree Scales using BICEP2 | Physics & Astronomy
    the detection of B mode polarization at degree scales in the Cosmic Microwave Background By making super sensitive maps of the polarization of the CMB we find evidence for primordial gravitational waves The theory of Cosmic Inflation postulates such gravitational waves to be produced from quantum fluctuations during an incredibly brief burst of hyper expansion in the very early universe BICEP2 hence finds the first direct evidence of this long

  • Reappointed Director of LRSM, Professor Arjun Yodh | Physics & Astronomy
    and has been a Sloan Fellow a NSF Presidential Young Investigator and an ONR Young Investigator among other honors He received his PhD 1986 and MS 1982 in Physics from Harvard University and BSc 1981 from the College of Engineering at Cornell University In his first term as Director of the LRSM Prof Yodh led the highly successful renewal of the 22 million National Science Foundation Materials Research Science and Engineering Center MRSEC award under extremely competitive conditions Penn s MRSEC award was the largest one nationwide He also devoted significant attention to building a pipeline for future leaders in science and engineering To this end the LRSM has developed numerous educational outreach programs for students in local K 12 schools for undergraduates at colleges and universities throughout the region and for the general public These programs enrich their knowledge and appreciation of materials research and couple the LRSM to industry government and the local community The LRSM was established in 1960 as one of the nations first interdisciplinary materials research centers and for more than fifty years has been the center for materials research at Penn With well over 50 active members it facilitates collaborations among faculty from different
