Three physics majors presented three research posters at the 2017 Annual Meeting of the Mid-Atlantic Section of the American Physical Society, on the campus of the New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) in Newark, NJ on Nov. 4-6, 2017.
They were accompanied by their research mentor Associate Professor of Physics Dr. Roberto Ramos. Despina Nakos Phys'20 presented "Student Responses to a Flipped Physics Class Environment with Built-in Feedback Quizzes", Caitlyn McConnell Phys'18 presented "Optimizing Sample Preparation for Soft Point Contact Spectroscopy of Iron Pnictude Crystals" and Oberon Wackwitz Phys'18 presented "Measuring the Superconducting Energy Gaps of Doped Iron Pnictide Superconductors Ba_(1-x) K_x Fe_2 A_2 using Soft Point Contact Spectroscopy".
The three physics majors were awarded a $250 travel grant from the conference organizers.
