Physics students doing specialized summer research
Contact: Rene Abadie
HAMMOND – Two Southeastern Louisiana University science students will be performing specialized physics research this summer in Japan and at Pennsylvania State University.
Chad Sziszak, a physics junior from Ponchatoula, will be at Tokyo Denki University where he is involved in materials research studies related to similar projects conducted in Southeastern’s Department of Chemistry and Physics. Over the last year, he worked in the lab of Southeastern scientist Sanichiro Yoshida, who has patented a process using lasers to detect structural weaknesses in materials.
Mohan Basnet will be working with scientists at Penn State on microtechnology studies in a new, cooperative project between Southeastern and the university. Basnet is a physics freshman from Sariahi, Nepal.
