February 8, 2017 - The University Doctoral Dissertation Fellowship Award is awarded by the Office of the Provost to enable and support Ph.D. students to devote full attention to the completion of their doctoral dissertation. These are competitive awards based on academic achievement and professional commitment and potential. The 2017-2018 recipients for the Graduate Office competitive awards are:

  • Muhammad Shabaz - University Doctoral Dissertation Fellowship Award
  • Yunjiao Cai - University Doctoral Dissertation Fellowship Award

Dr. Gillian Winters received her Ph.D. in 1990 from the University of Delaware under the supervision of Prof. Karl Unruh. She has just received the 2015 Paul Zitzewitz Excellence in Pre-College Physics Teaching Award from the American Association of Physics Teachers. Gillian Winters is a New York State Master Teacher and high school physics teacher from St. James, NY. This award is in recognition of contributions to pre-college physics teaching, and awardees are chosen for their extraordinary accomplishments in communicating the excitement of physics to their students.

Professor Jose D'Arruda received his Ph.D. from the University of Delaware in 1971 while working on theoretical atomic physics under the supervision of Robert N. Hill. He will receive the AAPT's Homer L. Dodge Citation for Distinguished Service to AAPT, during the 2018 Summer Meeting in Washington, DC.

Class of

Dr. Civiletti received his Ph.D. in 2014 for the studies of modern constraints on F-term SUSY hybrid inflation models under the supervision of Prof. Shafi. Dr. Civiletti is now an instructor at Morrisville State College, a unit of the State University of New York.

Prof. Safronova included in Google 2014 version of Scholar Metrics

One of Prof. Marianna Safronova's has been included in the Google 2014 version of Scholar Metrics, which highlights influential scientific papers published between 2009 and 2013: "Theory and applications of atomic and ionic polarizabilities," J. Mitroy, M.S. Safronova, C.W. Clark, J. Phys. B: At. Mol. Opt. Phys., 43, 202001 (2010).

 

Highly charged ions for atomic clocks and quantum information

July 22, 2014 - In the recent Physical Review Letters article, Prof. Safronova and her collaborators from the US, Australia and Russia have proposed 10 highly charged ions as candidates for the development of next generation atomic clocks, search for variation of fundamental physical constants, and quantum information processing. They predicted the ion properties crucial for the experimental exploration and highlighted particularly attractive systems for these applications.
