The following books by William & Mary faculty members were published in 2018.
Tricia Vahle, professor of physics at William & Mary and longtime NOvA participant, became a NOvA co-spokesperson on March 21.
A new result from the Q-weak experiment at the Department of Energy’s Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility provides a precision test of the weak force, one of four fundamental forces in nature.
He is one of only 60 grad students to be selected in 2018 for the DOE’s Office of Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) Program.
Fermilab’s forefront neutrino experiment gains a new and experienced leader as it prepares for its future. Tricia Vahle, professor of physics at William & Mary, was elected as NOvA’s new co-spokesperson.
Jonathan Frey is William & Mary’s new makerspace director.
William & Mary is launching a new engineering-oriented curriculum track, a variation on the university’s undergraduate physics major.
Ryan Chaban is a first-year Ph.D. student in William & Mary’s Department of Applied Science, working on some of the many knotty scientific problems that must be solved before we can tap the virtually limitless supply of energy that nuclear fusion can yield. He's also an award-winning essayist.
A look back at the William & Mary students awarded national and international scholarships and fellowships in 2017.
Chris Carone was recently elected a 2017 Fellow of the American Physical Society.
For the first time, scientists have directly detected gravitational waves — ripples in space-time — in addition to light from the spectacular collision of two neutron stars.
A number of William & Mary scientists were participants in the LIGO experiment, but will not share in the honors.
A scientific collaboration that includes physicists from William & Mary announced that three detectors on two continents recorded gravitational wave signals from a pair of black holes colliding.
Justin Stevens, an assistant professor in William & Mary’s Department of Physics, received an Early Career Award from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Science.
A contingent of William & Mary students worked and studied this summer at CERN, the European high-energy physics facility renowned as the site of the discovery of the Higgs boson.
Fermilab scheduled a July 21 groundbreaking ceremony a mile underground near Lead, South Dakota, the site of Long-Baseline Neutrino Facility (LBNF), which will house the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE). William & Mary is a member of the LBNF-DUNE collaboration.
William & Mary has joined six other Virginia research institutions in a formal agreement that will encourage shared use of scientific instrumentation.
