WeiDong Zhu & Debing Zeng, Applied Science and Technology

WeiDong Zhu, Associate Professor and Chair, and Debing Zeng, Assistant Professor, Applied Science and Technology are mentoring three Physics students that were selected to receive grants ($1000 each) from the Independent College Fund of New Jersey (ICFNJ) to conduct research in physics. Their research projects are:
Derek Osborn (’18) – Application of Microplasma-Synthesized Nanofilm for Melamine Detection by Surface-Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy, Mentor: Dr. Zeng.

Adam Zandani (18) – Plasma Bandage Using Surface Dielectric Barrier Discharge, Mentor: Dr. Zhu.

Edwin Rivas (17) – Investigation of Quantum Entanglement Dynamics of Coupled Qubits in the Global Environment, Mentor: Dr. Zeng.

The research period will be from October 2016 to January 2017. Upon concluding their research, the students will present their findings on Monday, March 6, 2017 at the Liberty Science Center in Jersey City.
