Cecille Labuda gave an introduction to waves at the "Waves, Here, There and Everywhere" workshop for teachers. The workshop was organized by UM Physics LIGO group in collaboration with the UM Center for Math education. The workshop concludes with a tour of the National Center for Physical Acoustics.
Sunethra Dayanvansha successfully defended her PhD prospectus on June 1. She will study the propagation of acoustic waves through micellar fluids.
The Acoustical Society of America is livestreaming some of its sessions. Stream links can be found here: http://acousticalsociety.org/content/streaming-broadcast. Nazanin Omidi will be giving a talk in the Focused Ultrasound for Brain Treatment session. That stream can be found here at the appropriate time (2:00 pm local in Utah): https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/5481891571892706306
Cecille Labuda will give a talk on acoustics at the UM Women in STEM Spring Dinner to be held on the University of Mississippi campus on April 21. Kate Dooley, another of the UM Physics faculty will also give a talk on gravitational waves.
The talk is titled "Ultrasound: The Sound That You Can't Hear".
Joel Mobley gave a fun-filled Science Cafe on the physics of MRI. He used several demos to explain magnetic spin, the response of protons in the body to resonant magnetic fields and how MRO collects and manipulates data. Click here for a gallery of photos.
