Professor Matt Wright’s group at Adelphi University has a number of research projects, including lasers to control atomic collisions, studying how fruit flies interact with magnetic fields, and how students use video podcasts to improve their learning.
Kidan Tadesse, our groups newest superstar, built an intensity servo feedback circuit in a short time and tested it out with the lasers. She is nearly complete with her next circuit too, a lock-in detector. Go Kidan!
We had 16 students graduate this year! Go Adelphi Physics! Here are just four of them!
