Undergraduate Research at The College of Wooster Produces 4 More Papers

At the American Physical Society conference in Indianapolis, two undergraduate students from Don Jacobs' group at the College of Wooster presented papers describing their work on critical point experiments:

Ryan D. Hartschuh and D.T. Jacobs "Composition dependence for the near-critical heat capacity of triethylamine and water," presentation at the March meeting of the American Physical Society (March, 2002).

Clinton I. Braganza and D.T. Jacobs "The correlation length of the liquid-liquid mixture perfluoroheptane and 2,2,4-trimethylpentane," presentation at the March meeting of the American Physical Society (March, 2002).

Two more papers with undergraduate student collaborators on the critical point research of the College of Wooster group were presented at two Gordon Conferences:

Nithya Venkataraman, Chris Locke, and D.T. Jacobs, "Correlation length amplitude for 8-arm polystyrene in methylcyclohexane near a critical solution point." Gordon Conference on Polymer Physics (August, 2002).

D.T. Jacobs, Matt Krivos, Christie Ednatuk, Tim SirLouis, and Hannah Wagner, "Avalanche distributions in a model bead pile" Gordon Conference on Granular Systems (July, 2002).
