Prof. Elena Long
Prof. Elena Long joined the physics at the University of New Hampshire as a Post Doc in 2013 and joined the faculty as an Assistant Professor in 2017. A recipient of the JSA Promising Young Scientist Award and the JSA Post Doctoral Research Prize, Dr. Long is researching the ways that a tensor-polarized target can be utilized to understand nuclear effects with a focus on understanding how the quarks inside of protons and neutrons come together to form atomic nuclei.
Alongside her physics research, Dr. Long has been working on increasing resources and diversity within physics. In 2009, she founded the organization lgbt+physicists, which has grown to include networking opportunites, an OutList, and worked with the American Physical Society (APS) to publish the LGBT Climate in Physics Report. She also serves as the Deputy Chair on the APS's effort to create a Forum of Diversity and Inclusion.
Michael is developing target stick components necessary for producing tensor polarization to remove the conditions on the Azz experiment, the focus of his research.
Leiqaa is analyzing data from the Jefferson Lab Tritium Experiments and prototyping 3D printed accelerator cavities.
Ryan is developing a data acquisition system for high-temperature thermometry.
Hannah is developing testing equipment that will allow us to measure the mechanical and electromagnetic properties of novel 3D printed materials to find those that are suited for use at cryogenic temperatures and high-radiation environments.
Eadric is developing new materials for stereolithography 3D printing to produce properties including survival at temperatures down to 1 K, radiation hardness, conductive surfaces, and transparency to mm-waves.
Previous Long Lab Members
Kellie is developing a method for 3D printing with the fluoroplastics FEP and PCTFE. She is a 2018 recipient of a UNH Undergraduate Research Award to design mm-wave lenses using fluoroplastics.
She is expected to graduate from UNH in December 2019 with a B.S. in physics.
Alexsandr 'Sasha' Sinilov
Sasha is developed post-processing methods to obtain >95% transparency of 3D printed materials for future use as scintillator-based particle detectors.
He is graduated from UNH in 2019 with a B.S. in Engineering Physics.
Nicholas developed the hardware and software for pulse NMR, and built the first 3D printer in the UNH Physics Departmnt.
He graduated from UNH in May 2018 with a B.S. in physics.
Milcah was a high school senior from Pinkerton Academy who worked with Adelaide on improving organization and air-flow of 3D printing in a fume hood to make printing fluoroplastics easier and safer. She graduated in 2018.
