Joshua Garner (left) and Kevin Ruppert (right)

Kutztown Physics Majors, Joshua Garner and Kevin Ruppert presented a research poster titled, Atom and Electron Pump Based on Oscillating Wells: Classical versus Quantum features, at the 46th Annual Meeting of the Division of Atomic, Molecular and Optical Physics (DAMOP) of the American Physical Society (APS) in Columbus Ohio. This is the premier international conference for atomic and optical physics, and the participants typically include several Nobel-Prize winners. The KU students did their work with Prof. Kunal K. Das as part of a research project funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF).  Currently, they are working to develop their results, which have applications in the fields of nanotechnology and atomtronics, for publication in a peer-reviewed journal. Joshua Garner was awarded conference travel support from the KU Undergraduate Research Committee.

ANNOUNCEMENTS

EXPERT NEEDED FOR LOCAL MEDIA
Nicole Brambila of the Reading Eagle is writing an article on falling crime rates (in York) and the issue of the state's highway system has come up - both with drug trafficking and economic development.  She would like to do a phone interview with a faculty expert who can discuss how highways both help and hurt crime rates.  She would like to do the interview today or tomorrow.  Please email me at dajohnson@kutztown.edu if you are willing and able to assist.  Thank you.

EVACUATION DRILLS, required by Pennsylvania life safety regulations, are intended to ensure the efficient and safe use of the exit facilities available in case of an emergency. Order and control are the primary purposes of the drill. The evacuation drills will be conducted beginning Tuesday, September 8, weather permitting, and continue through the week. Classroom faculty and staff should be familiar with the basic procedures by guiding building occupants to the nearest available exit, and standing clear from the building at least 100-feet to allow full evacuation of all occupants. Information on building evacuation procedures can be found by visiting the following link and scrolling to Page 3 - http://www2.kutztown.edu/Documents/public%20safety/EOPQuickRefGuide.pdf. Thank you for your cooperation.

KUTZTOWN UNIVERSITY STUDENT-ATHLETES RAISE MONEY FOR CHILDHOOD CANCER CHARITIES
More than 250 Kutztown University student-athletes came out to Andre Reed Stadium on Saturday to compete in various events for the common goal of raising money to fight childhood cancer.  Student-athletes teamed up with Angel34, a national organization united in the fight against childhood cancer and dedicated to finding a cure, as each team represented several children fighting cancer by competing in numerous team-building and relay-style events. Teams earned points for their finishes in each event as the KU baseball team finished first followed by field hockey in second and football's offensive players in third.
For more information and to join the fight, visit http://www.angel34.org/.
Saturday marked the inaugural Childhood Cancer Olympics at KU as both Angel34 and KU hope to continue this tradition for many years to come.
