Undergraduate Projects

Each year we host a number of undergraduates in our research laboratory.   This gives the students an opportunity to interact with the group members and to learn about new and exciting advances in physics-related technologies. 

2010-2011 UCC Undergraduates



Ashling Creedon, "Spherical properties of microbubbles"

Galvin Khara, "Higher order mode generation in tapered optical fibres"


2009-2010 UCC Undergraduates



Evan Ryan, "Spectral analysis of emssions from microcavity lasers"

2009 UCC Undergraduates



Mark Daly, "Experimental techniques in laser cooling"

Frances Lordan, "Manipulation of microparticles using optical forces: imaging "

Alex Petcu, "Optical nanofibers as tools for manipulating cold atoms: theory and experiment"

Project jointly supervised by Dr. Thomas Busch.


2008 UCC Undergraduates
