These might be high temperature superconductors, batteries or photovoltaic cells, or, increasingly, pharmaceuticals. Only a micron thick, their revolutionary "flat" lens is much thinner than a sheet of paper and offers performance comparable to top-of-the-line compound lens systems. The findings of the team, led by Nanfang Yuassociate professor of applied physics, are outlined in a new study, published by Light: They designed the laser so that half of the laser cavity is based on a semiconductor waveguide section with high optical gain, while the other half is based on waveguides, made of silicon nitride, a very low-loss material.
The first president was Andrew Adgate Lipscomb. Lipscomb laid the foundation of the college as a teaching college rather than a research institution. In the name was changed to "Alabama Conference Female College" as the college came under the auspices of the United Methodist Church.
As the college and the South struggled to rebuild following the Civil Warit became clear to college leaders that growth and stability were dependent upon relocation to a more populous city—and they chose the state's capital. The design for the landscape of the campus was provided by Frederick Law Olmsted, Jr.
The college, renamed once again to "Woman's College of Alabama," moved all of its furniture, lab chemicals, and records into Hamner Hall in Montgomery August 24,but the building burned to the ground that night, destroying the records of the college's first 50 years and all of its belongings.
Completed in and designed by Harvard architect H. Langford Warren, Flowers Hall was designed to emulate the collegiate Gothic architecture of Oxford and Cambridge, England, and of Cambridge, Massachusetts, and set the tone for the pervasive architectural style of campus buildings henceforth.
The college admitted its first male students in the aftermath of World War I, graduating the first male student in Realizing that the name Woman's College of Alabama no longer fit its student body, the college's final name change came in when Huntingdon College was adopted in honor of Selina, Countess of Huntingdona notable supporter of John Wesley and of Methodism.
Men's sports include baseball, basketball, football, golf, lacrosse, soccer, tennis and wrestling; while women's sports include basketball, golf, lacrosse, soccer, softball, tennis, and volleyball.
Huntingdon is the only four-year college in the state of Alabama to offer collegiate wrestling.Earlier this week I read through my PhD dissertation. My research was in an area of Pure Mathematics called Functional Analysis which, in short, meant it was self-motivated and void of tangible real-world application.
I submitted the thesis in and after a successful ‘defense’ made a swift exit from research mathematics. Dr.
McCloskey earned a BS in psychology, magna cum laude, and received the Departmental Award for Excellence in Psychology, from St. Vincent College in The paper was finished earlier than assigned. Writers used very specific details from the given sources with a variety of vocabulary.
They used different types of sentences and transition words that make the essay flow smoothly and more interesting.
The PhD Accounting program is designed for students seeking training in the most advanced issues in accounting, both theoretical and applied. It is intended to prepare them primarily for tenure-track positions in research-oriented universities.
PhD in Mathematical Finance.
The PhD in Mathematical Finance is for students seeking careers in research and academia. Doctoral candidates will have a strong affinity for quantitative reasoning and the ability to connect advanced mathematical theories with real-world phenomena. The University of Arizona (UA) is the flagship institution in the State of Arizona and offers graduate programs in more than areas of study.
Graduate programs of study are described here in our Graduate Catalog and Program Descriptions.
