Physics Major Nominated for 2006-07 Goldwater Scholarship

Eli Parke, a junior physics and engineering dual major, was selected to be one of the four K-State Nominees for 2006 for the Barry M. Goldwater scholarship.  A decision on who will receive this scholarship will be made in a national competition later this year.  He has already received the Giese Memorial scholarship.  He proposed to perform experimental studies in the J.R. Macdonald Laboratory under the guidance of Dr. Itzik Ben Itzhak on “the interaction of slow highly-charged ions with CO molecules.”  Of particular interest in his proposed research is the correlation between the post collision behavior of the target and projectile.
