BYU physics professor appointed scholar-in-residence

A Brigham Young University professor of physics and astronomy has been appointed as the George and Caroline Arfken Physics Scholar-in-Residence at Miami University (Ohio).

Bill Evenson received the honor for his extensive research in nanoparticle physics and nuclear condensed-matter physics, which is the study of matter using nuclear interactions.

Evenson will visit Miami University Nov. 3 to 8 to give lectures and to meet with faculty and students. He will give a public lecture, a physics seminar and a short course, all of which deal primarily with his studies in nuclear condensed-matter physics.

"I was surprised and honored when they asked me to do this," Evenson says. "It will give me a great opportunity to interact with some interesting people and share a little bit of what I've learned over the years."

A former Fulbright scholar, Evenson taught at the University of Konstanz in Konstanz, Germany, and has also taken leaves from BYU to lecture at the University of Hawaii and Oregon State University.

Evenson is the editor of the American Physical Society's "History of Physics Newsletter" and the founding chair of the American Physical Society's Four Corners Section.
