John DiTusa U.S. Department of Energy Awards Dr. John DiTusa and the Louisiana Consortium for Neutron Scattering (LaCNS) a $4.9M Statewide Research Grant. Neutron scattering is one of the few techniques available that can probe the structure and dynamics of materials over a broad range of time, length and energy scales. LaCNS researchers will use the equipment and facilities and collaborate with the scientific staff at Oak Ridge National Lab in Tennessee, where they will run their experiments.


Todd Moulder
Physics Undergraduate Todd Moulder and Dr. Jonathan Dowling are featured in the article "Physical Challenge" pertaining to the LSU Ronald E. McNair Research Scholars Program.



Jiandi Zhang
Professor Jiandi Zhang has been named American Physical Society Fellow. The research being done by Professor Zhang and his students on growing and characterizing novel materials with useful properties, such as superconductivity and magnetoresistivity, has practical applications for more efficient data storage and power generation.




Schrodinger's Killer App The Quantum Physics and Quantum Gravity groups' work applying fundamental quantum mechanics to the development of quantum computers and to the cosmology of the early universe are highlighted in "Schrödinger's Killer App: Quantum Technology at LSU".
