2016 Physics Internships at Wesleyan

2016 Physics internships at Wesleyan. May 9, 2016—Seven students started working today on summer research projects at Wesleyan. Dr. DeLaney's students are Kimmie Culver, Mark Leadingham, Angela Meyer, Olivia Rycroft, and Samantha Stinson. They are working on three projects: (1) developing a payload for a NASA sounding rocket to be launched this summer, (2) astronomy research involving pulsars and gravitational waves, and (3) building two radio telescopes. Stipends and supplies are provided by the NASA-WV Space Grant Consortium, the WV Higher Education Policy Commission's radio telescope grant, and by the WV Higher Education Policy Commission's gravitational waves grant. 

Dustin Kimble and Kody Tucker are working on nanotechnology projects with Dr. Wiest. Dustin's project is to use Raman spectrometry to determine the molecular structure of biodegradable plastics. Cody's project involves impurities in semiconductors. The students are paid by a grant from the NASA-WV Space Grant Consortium.
