Precision measurement and gravitational physics. I am interested in precision measurement science particularly in the areas of fundamental constants i.e.:G,null experiments (where the answer is zero unless something exciting is to be found), and gravitational (wave) physics. I also have a continuing interest (since my student days) in the measurement of little g and its applications (given todays high precision and accuracy) to geophysics and geodynamics.

Bill Ford Portrait

William Ford

Professor Emeritus
Physics
Research Interests: Professor Ford is an experimentalist in elementary particle physics with interests in weak interaction properties of leptons and quarks as measured by neutrino interactions, and by the lifetimes, branching fractions, and decay dynamics of weakly decaying particles. Professor Ford currently collaborates in the BaBar experiment operating at the SLAC Nathional Accelerator Laboratory in California, and in the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment at the European Organization for Nuclear...

Allan Franklin Portrait

Allan Franklin

Professor Emeritus
Physics
Research Interests: History and philosophy of science, particularly the roles of experiment. Professor Franklin's research is on the history and philosophy of science, with particular emphasis on the role of experiment in physics. He has done historical studies on parity conconservation, CP-violation, and Millikan's oil drop experiment. On the philosophical side, he has worked on the Duhem-Quine problem, the question of how one can localize support or refutation, and on...

Kalyana T. Mahanthappa

Professor Emeritus
Physics
Research Interests: High Energy Physics - Theoretical Interested in grand unification theories, fermion mixings and masses including charge fermions and neutrinos. My main motivation is to reduce the number of parameters needed in the standard model with the inclusion of massive neutrinos. I am pursuing this goal in the framework of grand unification theories with and without supersymmetry combined with a finite group as a family symmetry. In particular the...

Jerry Peterson

Professor Emeritus
Physics
Research Interests: Collaborator in experiments measuring reactions induced by intermediate and high energy protons and pions. Using accelerators around the world and appropriate collaborations, I measure reactions with beams of protons or pions on complex nuclei, seeking the simple features. Recent solo work has used scaling relations as in the papers above as an attempt to unify these results. As a sideline, I work with nuclear astrophysics issues at very...

Paul Phillipson

Professor Emeritus
Physics
Education: Ph.D. University of Chicago, 1962. Alfred P. Sloan Fellow 1965-67; European Molecular Biology Organization Research Fellow 1972-74; Visiting Professor, University of Vienna; Visiting Research Professor, Austrian Academy of Sciences. Professor Phillipson is interested in theoretical studies in nonlinear dynamics and biophysics. Many nonlinear processes are encapsulated by differential equations and by mappings. Research is directed toward development of computational algorithms and analytic techniques designed to facilitate understanding of solutions...

Scott Robertson

Professor Emeritus
Physics
Research Interests: I do experimental research in basic plasma physics, most of which is related to dust in plasmas. I am presently involved in two research areas. (1) The polar ionosphere contains meteoritic dust particles that are the nucleation sites for icy cloud particles. Students and I construct instruments for rockets that return data from 80-120 km altitude on the charge-to-mass ratio and number density of these particles so their...

James Smith

Professor Adjoint (Retired)
Physics
Research Interests: Professor Smith's research interests are in experimental high energy physics, specifically decays of B mesons and search for supersymmetric particles. Professor Smith's research interests are in experimental high energy physics. As a member of the CLEO collaboration (Cornell), he was a primary author of several measurements of rare B meson decays. Among these was the first observation of the decays B -> pipi and B -> Kpi, which...
