Body: 
The College of Mathematics, Natural Sciences & Technology is home to the Optical Science Research Imaging Center. This facility, located in Rm 237 of the Luna I. Mishoe Science Center, was initially founded with funding from the National Science Foundation in 2005 and has developed multiple capabilities to accommodate qualitative and quantitative spectroscopy and Imaging research. The goals of the Optical Science Research Imaging Center are to create an integrated research and education environment for researchers and students; to support and motivate cross-disciplinary research among scientists from different DSU and non-DSU STEM departments; and to provide access to companies and external users to state-of-the-art instruments and expertise for imaging and analysis of complex samples. A modest-sized operation, The Optical Science Research Imaging Center offers a quick turn-around time and a reasonably discounted  rate.

NQuigley-Machinist

Body: 
Nicholas J. Quigley, Machinist Nick began working in his trade in 1977.  After completing related schooling, he enrolled in a State sponsored Apprenticeship Program.  On completion, he received his Journeyman papers. This program consisted of over 8000 hours of job training and additional schooling.   For 24 years prior to coming to DSU, he worked as Shop Foreman in a machine shop.  His responsibilities included fabrication, project management, consultation, design and research and development for companies such as E.I. Dupont and Gore medical.  As a cabinet and furniture maker, he has been able to blend these two trades and do much of the machining of plastics in the cabinet shop allowing for more speed and versatility in fabrication.   Back to College Home Page

EMcCormack

Body: 
Elizabeth F. McCormack received her bachelor's degree in astronomy and physics from Wellesley College in 1983 and her Ph.D. in physics from Yale University in 1989. Thereafter, she joined the Laser Photophysics and Photochemistry program at Argonne National Laboratory as a Postdoctoral Research Associate. In 1990 she was awarded an Alexander Hollaender Distinguished Postdoctoral Fellowship. In 1991 she accepted a permanent staff position in the Laser Photophysics and Photochemistry program, and in 1993 she was promoted to the position of Physicist. In 1995 she joined the faculty at Bryn Mawr College and began a research program in molecular physics with funding from a CAREER award from the NSF. She was promoted with tenure to the associate rank in 2001 and in 2005 was promoted to Professor. In her research she investigates fundamental aspects of molecular excited state-structure and dynamics using a variety of laser spectroscopy techniques. Her interests include Rydberg and ion-pair state dynamics, photoionization, autoionization, predissociation, and photodissociation. Her techniques include resonant multiphoton excitation and detection, time-of-flight mass spectroscopy, and resonant, four-wave mixing in the frequency and time domains. She has published over 30 peer-reviewed articles and has received support for her work from the NSF and NASA throughout her time at Bryn Mawr. In 2005 she was elected a Fellow of the APS. In 2006-2007 she served as Chair of the Faculty and in 2007 she received the College’s McPherson Prize for Faculty. From 2008-2011 she served as Dean of Graduate Studies at the College. She is a member of the American Physical Society, the Association for Women in Science, the American Association for Physics Teachers, and a Faculty 21 member of Project Kaleidoscope . Currently she serves on the Board of Directors of The Research Corporation for Science Advancement, the Board of Advisors to Project Kaleidoscope in association with the Association of American Colleges and Universities, and is a consultant to the Scientific Equipment Program at the Sherman Fairchild Foundation.   Back to College Home Page
