This year the Physics Department has an exceptional set of graduating seniors, four of whom received departmental honors.

These four projects in total produced one poster at the Spring Materials Research Society meeting in San Francisco, one peer-reviewed paper accepted for publication in the MRS proceedings, a startup company to commercialize some of the ideas, two winning poster entries and four talks at Gordon's Undergraduate Research Symposium.
