Physicists skirt thermal vibration, transfer optical signal via mechanical oscillator

November 15, 2012

From the group of Hailin Wang

Using tiny radiation pressure forces — generated each time light is reflected off a surface — University of Oregon physicists converted an optical field, or signal, from one color to another. Aided by a “dark mode,” the conversion occurs through the coupling between light and a mechanical oscillator, without interruption by thermal mechanical vibrations.

Ancient UO computer from Nuclear Lab is front and center at Seattle’s new Living Computer Museum

November 2, 2012

From the group of Harlan Lefevre

At Seattle’s Living Computer Museum which opened in October, one of the oldest exhibits at the is a PDP-7 made by Digital Equipment Corporation. Designed in the mid-1960s, it is believed to be the only working model of this machine in the world. The computer operated in Harlan Lefevre’s lab for many years.

State grant for STEM education partnership

September 9, 2012

From the group of Dean Livelybrooks

The Oregon Department of Education recently awarded $450,000 to the University of Oregon and the Eugene School District to improve high school and middle school students’ performance in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. The partnership between the Eugene School Disctrict and University of Oregon, as well as industry, is co-directed by Dean Livelybrooks, senior instructor at the Department of Physics.

Higgs discovery: UO physicists play crucial role

July 9, 2012

From the group of Jim Brau

Physicists on experiments at the Large Hadron Collider say that they have observed a new particle, but they remain uncertain that it is the predicted Higgs boson.
The UO’s contingent at the ATLAS experiment comes from the Center for High Energy Physics, which is headed by Brau. Other involved faculty members are David Strom, who currently is the ATLAS trigger coordinator, Ray Frey and Eric Torrence.
