Tracked data for Chionactis occipitalis through a post array
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2019-01-25)
Limbless animals like snakes inhabit most terrestrial environments, generating thrust to overcome drag on the elongate body via contacts with heterogeneities. The complex body postures of some snakes and the unknown physics ...
Robust matter-light entanglement generation and distribution
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2011-07-18)
Magneto-optical study of correlated electron materials in high magnetic fields
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2014-01)
Transforming the preparation of physics graduate teaching assistants
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2019-12-02)
Graduate Teaching Assistants (GTAs) are key partners in the education of undergraduate students. In large-enrollment intro physics classes, students spend roughly half of their in-class hours in labs and recitations under ...
Simulation and theoretical study of swimming and resistive forces within granular media
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2011-11-14)
Understanding animal locomotion requires modeling the interaction of the organism with its environment. Locomotion within granular media like sand, soil, and debris that display both solid and fluid-like behavior in response ...
Computational modeling of dusty nuclear starburst disks and its consequences on observables
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2018-05-30)
Active galactic nuclei (AGNs) are the most energetic non-explosive objects in the uni- verse whose comoving space density peaks near redshift z ∼ 2 (Wolf et al., 2003). They radiate energy across the electromagnetic spectrum ...
Uniquely quantifying highly similar RNA transcripts at the single molecule level
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2018-11-09)
Understanding RNA expression is critical to understand the connection between phenotype and genotype in living cells. To further complicate things, RNA splicing leads to the generation of multiple distinct isoforms which ...
Characterization of functionalized and unfuctionalized metal oxide nanoparticle interactions with gas mixtures on porous silicon
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2015-06-30)
In order to create more sensitive and accurate gas sensors, we have studied the interactions of gas mixtures on metal oxide nanoparticle decorated porous silicon interfaces. The nanoparticles control the magnitude ...
All-microwave control of hyperfine states in ultracold spin-1 rubidium
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2019-10-04)
The manipulation of quantum spin states in a spinor Bose-Einstein condensate is critical for nearly all types of studies in these systems. State control methods are used to initialize the state of the system, apply Hamiltonian ...
Physics communication and peer assessment in a reformed introductory mechanics classroom
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2018-07-16)
We designed and implemented a set of introductory mechanics laboratory exercises featuring real-world data-gathering, computational modeling, and video lab reports with peer assessment. Our goal in developing a peer ...
