Disassociation and Ionization of Molecular Ions

supervisor: Itzik Ben-Itzhak
Kansas State University Physics Department REU Program, sponsored by NSF
In this website I will be posting information about my summer research experience. I am working with Dr. Ben-Itzhak's AMO group studying the disassociation and ionization of molecules. I attend Illinois Wesleyan University, but through the REU program and the kindness of the Kansas State University Physics Department, I am here for the summer doing research. Another REU student, Sam Farentholtz, is also working with Dr. Ben-Itzhak's group and we spend most of our time working together on various projects.
Unfortunately, at this time most of the projects on which I am working contain sensitive information that cannot be posted on the internet. I will post information about non-sensitive information as soon as possible, but the complete description of my summer experience probably won't be posted for some time. Thank you for your patience.
Broadly speaking, I am working on three projects. Below you will find links to the three separate projects.
In addition to my research projects, you will also find links to pages about our ethics classes, my final presentation, and my final report.
About Me: As I said above, I attend Illinois Wesleyan University in Bloomington, IL. IWU is a small liberal arts school, so I'm very happy to be at a high powered research institution for the summer. I am a philosophy and physics double major. I will be a senior in the fall and so I'm freaking out about the GRE, graduate school (philosophy and/or physics), and life after undergraduate work. I enjoy cycling, playing guitar, reading, and painting, if I can find the space. Thanks for reading my website.
