CPL Welcomes 8 New Members
Following the previous success in Talented
Student Program (TSP) and Third Year Student Projects, 8 gifted students
will be joining us CPL this semester doing research in a number of areas.
Some of these students will work individually while others will work as
Fig. 1 - Three of the Talented Students - Timothy Olshansky (Leftmost), Peter
Berger (Left), and James Simonian (Middle) will be working with our beloved
investigators - Alex Samarian (Right) and William Tsang (Rightmost).
Fig. 2 - Our third year student Steven Barkby is receiving some useful advices
from our investigator Cameron Ford.
Fig.3 - Chris Brunner will be studying the radial and azimuthal stability coefficient
of dust clusters.
Fig. 4 - Our students, Anna Ougrinovskaia (Right) and Daniel Yardley (Left),
seems very excited already before any work has started.
Brief stats about the students are as
Barkby, third year student, will investigate the influence of brownian
motion in the stability and the intershell rotation of dust clusters.
His project is an extension of the existing simulation program written
in Matlab which was previously developed by Cameron
Brunner, third year student, will be analysing our experimental
data on dust clusters and obtain both their radial and azimuthal stability
coefficients. The relationship between the two coefficients will also
Berger, and James
Simonian, first year students, will be doing some experiments with William
Ougrinovskaia, third year student, and Daniel
Yardley, second year student, will be studying interparticle forces
between vertically aligned particles. This project is a continuation
of the work performed by Lenaic Couedel..
Dar, first year student, will be working with our chief investigator
Kostya Ostrikov on theoretical work and computer simulation.
CPL would like to welcome these eight
new gifted members and wish them all the bests in their research of complex
