Prof. Majumder Awarded NSF Grant (2006)

The National Science Foundation awarded a $229,500 research grant to Prof. Tiku Majumder to continue his high-precision spectroscopic study of thallium and other heavy elements. This work will help test fundamental particle physics in atomic systems. The grant will pay for equipment, supplies, and for summer student stipends. Over the past decade, over 15 students have worked on honors thesis projects in Majumder’s lab and many more have worked there for a summer or more.
