Friday, October 3, 2014:

You are invited to join the Ithaca College Department of Physics & Astronomy for Public Viewing Night at the Clinton B. Ford Observatory this Friday October 3, 2014 from 8:00 P.M. - 10:00 P.M.

Attending a Public Night

Just show up the vehicle 'turn around' in front of the entrances of Smiddy Hall and CHS (F lot side). A shuttle van will make regular runs to convey people up to the observatory and back down. Please note that there is NO parking available up at the observatory and that the access road is NOT lighted. For your own safety, please do not walk up.

Bad Weather Plan

The "go/no-go" decision for any public night will be made at 3:30 p.m. on the scheduled date. Our web page and the recorded message at the observatory will be updated shortly thereafter to reflect the decision for that evening. If you check our site or call the observatory at 274-3012 after about 4:00 p.m. (to give us time to post an update) you will get the final decision for that evening.

Tuesday September 9:

Seminar: Please join us for a talk entitled: How I spent my vacation: Using simultaneous in-situ x-ray reflectivity and RHEED to map layer-by-layer thin-film oxide growth. With Professor Matthew C. Sullivan of the Ithaca College Department of Physics & Astronomy

12:10 in CNS 204

Prof. Matthew C. Sullivan spent the 2012-2013 academic year learning about X-ray physics. He worked as a full-time Visiting Associate Professor at the Cornell High Energy Synchrotron Source (CHESS). CHESS is a national user facility funded by the National Science Foundation, and it produces high-intensity x-rays of many different wavelengths for use in experiments. He used the x-rays to characterize layer-by-layer growth of thin films of SrTiO3, the most common oxide material. In particular, his work investigated differences between reflection high energy electron diffraction (RHEED) and x-ray reflectivity (XRR) as in situ probes of this layer-by-layer growth.

Prof. Sullivan will talk about x-ray physics, work at the synchrotron during his sabbatical as well as ongoing work during his talk.

Pizza and refreshments provided for $1. Please bring your own cup. Remember to reuse, reduce, recycle.
