On March 22, 2017, Kishor T. Kapale, with the Department of Physics at Western Illinois University, will give a basic introduction to the paradigms of quantum information processing without assuming any knowledge of the subject and will discuss strategies for realistic physical implementations of quantum information processing tasks. Kapale will also mention some of his research […]
Congratulations to Joe Milliano, mathematics/physics double-major, MAE student, and Noyce Scholar who has been appointed to the National Science Teacher Association’s Committee on Preservice Teacher Preparation. The Preservice Teacher Preparation Committee reviews all NSTA policies, programs, and activities relating to professional development in science education. Joe’s appointment is for two years and he will attend […]
Taner Edis, professor of physics, has just published a new book: Islam Evolving: Radicalism, Reformation, and the Uneasy Relationship with the Secular West.
Our Society of Physics Students chapter was named as an “Outstanding Chapter” once again by the National SPS.
Dave Rife, Truman physics alum, has been noted as a multimedia artist and leading “content creator.” (Scroll down to just after the middle.)
Our chapter of the Society of Physics Students has been recognized as an “Outstanding Chapter” for 2014. We often win this award, and it’s good to be recognized as one of the more active and accomplished SPS chapters in the country.
Paul Friz, one of our recent physics graduates, was in the news due to his work with the Rosetta Project.
The next SPS meeting is this Thursday at 6:00 in MG 1000. As always, there will be pizza. If you have not paid your dues yet, bring $5 for this semester, or $10 if you want to pay for both.
We just learned that Truman Physics alumnus, Paul Friz, has just been named Assistant to the Rosetta Mission Project Manager at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL). Congratulations Paul!
