Research and Course Based

Quantum Computing

I am currently at work on a project, but details have yet to be made public. Stay tuned for more information.

Condensed Matter Physics

In doing research in the field for 3 years, I completed many projects. Some of these projects include using chemical vapor transport to successfuly synthesize crystals of niobium diselendide and niobium triselenide, desgin and construction of high vacuum systems, restoration and regeneration of a glove box, desgin and creation of multiple electrical probes, cryostate operation for electrical transport measurements. As well I have listed bellow examples of my research posters, with their titles and links to the posters.

Nuclear Particle Physics

My research was focused on a single project which utilized the AMPT model to preform a background simulation of Au+Au collisions. We published a paper on the work, Event-shape-engineering study of charge separation in heavy-ion collisions. The abstract for this paper can be found below. As well a poster was made and presented for my research, a copy of which can be found below.

Abstract: Recent measurements of charge-dependent azimuthal correlations in high-energy heavy-ion collisions have indicated charge-separation signals perpendicular to the reaction plane, and have been related to the chiral magnetic effect (CME). However, the correlation signal is contaminated with the background caused by the collective motion (flow) of the collision system, and an effective approach is needed to remove the flow background from the correlation. We present a method study with simplified Monte Carlo simulations and a multi-phase transport model, and develop a scheme to reveal the true CME signal via the event-shape engineering with the flow vector of the particles of interest.

Audio Modulated Laser

In a lab based class at Berkeley I, with my lab partner Bobby Ge, designed and created an audio modulated laser. Effectively, we transmited audio signals through a laser beam. This device took input audio signals and modulated a laser with the signal, then when shown onto a photo-transistor the signal would play into the circuit and the output could be played through a speaker. A full write up and report of the project can be found here. As well, bellow is an audio player that contains two example recordings that we transmited with the laser.

Audio player is thanks to BBplayer, whose github can be found at this link
