Undergrad Physics Students present at NCUR

On Tuesday 5 April 2022, OSU Physics undergraduate students Ryan Boyce, Conner Heffernan and Garrett Thornton presented a talk at the National Conference on Undergraduate Research 2022. The title of their talk was "Compact Silicon PIN Photodiode Sensor for Secondary Cosmic Ray Detection at Aviation Altitudes" and detailed their research in constructing and testing an radiation detector that will soon fly on a rocket to be launched by OSU's High Power Rocketry Team and on NASA's WB-57 high altitude research aircraft. Their detector design will also fly next year on a Blue Origin New Shepard suborbital flight and on the International Space Station.(Dr. Eric Benton, April 5, 2022)
