2006 Award Winners
ALBERT O. CROWELL AWARD
The Crowell Award is for senior Physics major for their excellent performance in participation of experimental research in Physics.Recipients:
Carrie E. Black
Carrie Black grew up in Wolcott, VT and became interested in physics by reading popular books on particle Physics. Carrie worked with Professor David Smith and collected data at Brookhaven National Lab and Argonne National Lab. Carrie Black studied how heavy atoms in glass slow atomic vibrations, reduce infrared absorption and narrow the spectrum of colors produced by prisms. Carrie is currently pursuing a Ph.D at the University of New Hampshire at the Institute for the STudy of the Earth, Oceans and Space in plasma kinetic theory.
Paul R. Mark
Paul Mark carried out variable temperature x-ray diffraction measurements to study structural transitions in high-temperature liquid crystalline compounds and understand crystallization behavior in graft copolymers.
DAVID W. JUENKER PHYSICS PRIZE
The Juenker Award is for the senior Physics major who has the best academic record.
Recipient: Amy L. Cochran
Amy Cochran has been chosen by the faculty of the Physics Department as the recipient for the 2006 Juenker Award due to her outstanding academic record. Amy Cochran is studying Math at the University of Rhode Island.
