SPS Zone 6 meeting
By Winston Roberts - April 25, 2011
In addition to the slate of talks that usually takes place at such meetings, our students participated in a Physics Jeopardy contest, which they won. One of the FSU contingent, Zachary McDargh, also participated in the poster session. His poster titled "Finite Lattice Size Corrections to the Energy Momentum Dispersion of a Free Field" shared first place with the poster presented by Jennifer Black from Southern Polytechnic University on her "Search for the Rigidity Transition in Lithium Oxide Silicate Glass Systems Using Modulated Differential Scanning Calorimetry (MDSC)".
In summary, our students acquitted themselves very well, and there are hopes that this level of interaction with regional SPS organizations will continue. In fact, the FSU Chapter of SPS will be hosting the Zone 6 meeting next spring.
