The senior thesis program gives students an opportunity to do their own research on a topic of their choosing.
Some students use the thesis to do theoretical work beyond what is covered in normal courses, some participate in a faculty member’s laboratory research, and some devise experiments of their own. The college provides special grants to students who need specialized equipment or other resources not readily available.
Current thesis topics include:
- Josephson Dynamics in Bose-Einstein Condensates Trapped in a Double Well
- Photothermal Imaging
