Physics Education Projects

Modern Optics Labs for Upper Level Undergraduates - NSF funded senior level sequence. Laser Physics in the fall, and Spectroscopy in the spring. Drs. Marcum and Yarrison-Rice are the Co-PI's. Lab work is emphasized, including lasers, fiber optics, second-harmonic generation, signal processing using phase conjugation, optical tweezers, saturation spectroscopy, and a magneto-optical trap.

Miami University Physics Education Project - NSF funded project to revamp the way freshman physics is taught, including mechanics, quantum mechanics, statistical physics, electricity and magnetism, and special relativity. A project that involves many of Miami's faculty including Drs. Houk, Julian, Lottis, Marcum, Pechan, Poth, Priest, Yarrison-Rice
