Susan D'Amato, along with four physics students, attended the Southeastern Conference for Undergraduate Women in Physics in January at the University of Tennessee. Students Evdokiya Kostadinova and Anna Sheppard presented a poster at the undergraduate poster session. Kristina Pardo and Victoria Strait also attended. Highlights of the conference included scientific talks by women physicists; panel discussions focusing on undergraduate research opportunities, graduate school, and careers in physics; a full-day tour at Oak Ridge National Laboratory; and a keynote speech by Persis Drell, director of SLAC (Stanford Linear Accelerator Center). Dake Wang and Nicholas Reynolds ’11 published their second co-authored article, “Photoluminescence of Zinc Oxide Nanowires: The Effect of Surface Band Bending,” in the journal ISRN Condensed Matter Physics. Reynolds will be pursuing advanced study in physics at Iowa State University.
