Student Physicist Research in Switzerland

Student Physicist Research in Switzerland When all of South Jersey flocks to the shore this summer for relief from the heat, one Rutgers-Camden student will be chilling in Switzerland.

Thanks to a supplemental grant from the National Science Foundation, Deptford resident Eli Brookes, a junior physics major at Rutgers-Camden, will conduct research at the Paul Scherrer Institute in Switzerland for three months this summer.

Brookes has been assisting Daniel Bubb, an associate professor of physics at Rutgers-Camden, who has developed a new method for coating polymers. The award of $28,150 supplements a previously awarded grant to Bubb for $129, 463, that will allow the Rutgers-Camden team to further their developments on a pulsed laser deposition technique.

“Eli was chosen because he has a tremendous amount of potential and I think he will take advantage of the opportunity,” says Bubb, who will also travel to Switzerland for approximately three weeks.

Accompanying Brookes to Switzerland is Princeton resident Ullas Gurudas, a post-doctorate associate, who works in Bubb’s Rutgers-Camden lab. Both Brookes and Gurudas will perform laser-materials interactions studies in Thomas Lippert’s laboratory.

“Getting involved in what you’re interested in and meeting people who can help you find opportunities has been a great motivation. I think every Rutgers student would benefit from this kind of experience,” says Brookes, who graduated from Haddonfield Memorial High School in 2004.
