Research and Other Activities

I am now a Professor Emeritus, and continue as a member of the Graduate School.

Since I have retired these publications have appeared (with lots of coauthors):

"Metallic nonsuperconducting phase and d-wave superconductivity in Zn-substituted LSCO", Phys. Rev. Lett. 84, 155 (2000),

"Impurity and strain effects on the magnetotransport of LSCZO films", Phys. Rev. B 65,100504 (2002),

"Magnetotransport in the normal state of LSCZO films", Phys. Rev. B 66, 104512 (2002).

"A report on some teaching innovations" at Rutgers, called "We can do better", was published in the newsletter of the Forum on Physics and Society of the American Physical Society in the July 2001 issue, and is available through the APS home page. It was reprinted as a guest editorial in the Journal of College Science Teaching in the October 2001 issue, page 82.

A "Guest Comment", called "Format and content in introductory physics" is in the January issue of the American Journal of Physics, 70,12 (2002).

The following are talks at AAPT meetings, with abstracts in the AAPT announcer:

"Letting go - or not" at the meeting in Rochester, NY in 2001,

"Can we bring the introductory course to life again?" at the meeting in Madison, WI in 2003,

"Are we teaching physics?" at the meeting in Sacramento, CA in 2004.

I have contributed four entries to the Encyclopedia of New Jersey, Rutgers University Press, 2004. they are on John Bardeen, William Shockley, The Transistor, and Cosmic Background Radiation.

The textbook for introductory physics that I am writing with Suzanne White Brahmia is called "Physics: The First Science. Let me know if you are interested!
