SV-Vl/Lver 2007


Each summer the Department of Physics hosts a
10-week summer research program for students
contemplating a career in the physical sciences.
Supported by the National Science Foundation .
and UF, the REU program services 15
undergraduates per year, drawn to Gainesville
from all over the country. The Summer 2007
program included ...

* Mentored research on individual projects
(experiment or theory) Prof Selman Hershfield (L) and Carlos Torres (UF)
* Scientific seminars, lab visits, and
communications workshops
* Joint activities with other REU sites at the
University of Florida and the NHMFL
* Social activities on and off campus
* End-of-summer research symposium
presented by Site participants

The program also supports follow-up
presentation by participants at local and
national scientific meetings.

Daniel Pajerowski, a 3rd year graduate
student working with Prof Mark Meisel, has
received a travel scholarship of $500 to
attend "Users Week 2007" at ORNL (Oak
Ridge National Laboratory) in October 2007.
Daniel will be presenting a poster about his
recent work, which is a collaborative effort
involving UF chemistry graduate student
Franz Frye and Prof Dan Talham, on nanoparticles of Prussian
blue analogs (New J. Phys. 9 (2007) 222) and will be able to
tour the neutron and nanoscience facilities available at ORNL.


In Memory...
The Department of Physics lost one of its own, Wayne Bomstad, a graduate
student, who passed away on September 21, 2007. He is described by a
fellow student,


Wayne was many things to manypeople. Students knew him as a
teacher or mentor. Professors, colleagues, and classmates knew him as a hard working,
dedicated graduate student. Others who were closer to him knew him as a hockey teammate,
workoutpartner, and dependable friend.

He was a constant, fun-loving, i,,, /. ibl ./'! presence in the physics department for the past five
years. Our lives will be much emptier without him. Wayne will be sorely missed, but not
forgotten by all of these people and more.

National Science Foundation (NSF) funding of the East
Asia and Pacific Summer Institutes (EAPSI)

The EAPSI program of the NSF offers U.S. graduate students
in science and engineering a unique opportunity to study
abroad with foreign researchers (in Australia, China, Japan,
Korea, New Zealand, Singapore, or Taiwan) for 8 weeks during
the summer. In 2008, the EAPSI awards will include a stipend
of $5,000, an allowance for international travel, and support to
attend a pre-departure orientation in Washington DC. Foreign
co-sponsoring organizations will provide additional support to
cover EAPSI students' living expenses abroad. The link to the
EAPSI website is http://www.nsf.gov/eapsi.
