The Department of Physics has presented end-of-semester awards to undergraduate students in four physics courses for their projects and posters.
Best project awards in the PHYS211-Waves, Optics and Thermodynamics course were given to Taylan Kargın (EE) for his project “Laser Interferometer”; Doruk Efe Gökmen (PHYS) for “Demonstration of Location Using an Ultrasonic Sensor-Based SONAR”; and Makbule Kübra Korkmaz (EE) for “Ultrasonic Piano.” The awardees received their certificates at a small ceremony in the Physics Department on January 7.
Best poster awards for the PHYS491-Senior Project course were awarded upon selection by a jury following a poster presentation session. Awards went to Koray Yavuz for his poster “Dynamic Self-Assembly”; Ekrem Taha Güldeste for “Nuclear Modeling of Spin Bath Decoherence”; Enes Aybar for “Floquet Hamiltonian for N Bosons in a Double Well”; and Falko Schmidt for “Brownian Motion of Beads in a Critical Binary Liquid.” The four senior physics students received their award certificates at the close of the session.
In the PHYS101-General Physics I and PHYS102-General Physics II courses, students received best project awards for their laboratory work. The jury selected EE student Taylan Kargın’s project “Damped Harmonic Oscillation”; CS student Ömer Ekmekçioğlu’s project “Investigation of Fluid Resistances”; CS student Gökcan Değirmenci’s project “Shot the Monkey”; and ME student Ali Kemal Giregiz’s project “DC Motor Experiment” as the award winners. The students received their certificates at the close of the presentation session.
