Physics and Astronomy
Scott Whitfield recently was awarded a $152,504 National Science Foundation Research at an Undergraduate Institution grant for his project titled “Photoionization Studies of Open f-subshell Atoms.” The project will involve experimental studies of the dynamics of the photoionization process in the lanthanide atoms. Photoionization is one example of the very fundamental interaction between light and matter. It involves the emission of electrons from atoms in the gas phase when irradiated by x rays and ultraviolet light. The experiments will take place at the Synchrotron Radiation Center in Stoughton. The SRC is operated by UW-Madison for the National Science Foundation. Go to top of page
