Seminar: Scientific Writing (Thu. 21 Nov, 2013 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm)

Dr. Sharon Sessions of the Physics Department will present a seminar titled, "Writing is Hard: Organizational Tools For Getting It Done Anyway." Academic writing is necessary, yet many journal articles, grant proposals, theses and dissertations remain incomplete or unwritten entirely by authors who struggle to find the right words or the right time to get them done.  Reflecting on her  own struggles has helped Dr. Sessions identify specific road blocks in my writing--and ways to overcome them. The key to writing is organization, but strategies for organization vary depending on whether you are organizing your references materials (How was this paper relevant again?), your thoughts (Where do I start?), or your time (What time?). In this talk, Sessions will present different tools she has discovered to organize materials, thoughts, and time to become a more productive writer. 4 p.m. in Workman 101. All are welcome.

Physics Department Dissertation Defense (Fri. 22 Nov, 2013 9:00 am - 10:00 am)

Tyler McCracken, doctoral candidate in the Physics Department, will defend his dissertation, "Closing the Loop on the MRO Interferometer ICoNN Tracker." The heart of the Magdalena Ridge Observatory Interferometer (MROI) is the fringe tracker, or ICoNN, which is the instrument that pushes the interferometer’s limiting magnitude beyond the current state-of-the-art. For ground-based interferometers to continuously observe high contrast fringes, and be able to reliably form images, the effects of the turbulent atmosphere must be kept under control. The fringe tracker tracks the random, constantly-changing, path length variations between combination partners, keeping the entire interferometer in phase. McCracken will present the process in which the loop was closed on the ICoNN (Infrared Coherencing Nearest Neighbor) tracker, demonstrating its capability to track atmospheric-like perturbations.

Street Hockey (Fri. 22 Nov, 2013 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm)
