The Absorption Spectra of Gold Nanoparticles

Kansas State University Physics Department  REU Program, sponsored by NSF

Welcome to my webpage.  This page summarizes my experience doing research for the Summer 2007 in the lab of Dr. Sorensen.  I work with a couple different chemical substances in the lab, and my Chemicals page should be able to acquaint you with them now.  If you don't know any chemistry at all, that is the place to start, as I'll assume knowledge of its contents from now on.

Below, I describe the Project Goals, my Research Strategy, my Research Progress, and will eventually post my Final Presentation and Final Report.  I post my homework assignments from our weekly REU scientific Ethics class, taught by Prof. Bruce Glymour, and my reaction to Prof. Larry Weaver's Lectures.   Scroll all the way down to learn more About Me.  Finally, I've included some Useful Links.

Powercat is my hero.
