This spring, the Creighton University Society of Physics Students (CUSPS) will again sponsor Physics Field Day, a day of activities and excitement for high school students. The theme of the 2009 Physics Field Day is “Space Physics as Portrayed in Film.“ The rulebook can be found here.
The day is filled with competitions that require understanding and application of basic physical principles. We in the CUSPS believe that physics can be enjoyed in a hands-on, competitive spirit. There is an event for everyone!
The Physics Department has the opportunity to assist in the planning and prototype testing for solar cell arrays on the Creighton campus. Any student who would be interested in becoming part of this effort should contact Dr. Cherney this week. A commitment of at least 5 hours per week would be required. In the process students can earn Independent Study (PHY 495) credit.
Right now this is just a placeholder, but soon we hope to fill these pages with sage advice for current and future CU physics graduate students. If you are a current student, you can contribute! This is a wiki page. Login and add what you feel needs to be added.
Root is a powerful histogramming software package used for analysis by High Energy Physics Laboratories. Root Tree is a structure in Root used for storing and accessing large volume of data. I will report the work I have done so far, in the High Energy Physics group, with Root and the work we just began on identifying ALICE electrons using Root Tree functionalities.
