My past research has been on optical metrology and the use of real time measurement and analysis for process control in manufacturing.  More recently my interest has focused on measurement uncertainty and how to deal with it.  This includes the fundamental sources of noise, error, and uncertainty as well as analysis and design of equipment and algorithms for reducing them.

This course and its continuation PHYS 212 serve as a two-semester introduction to classical physics. Applications are chosen that focus on engineering and the physical sciences. Topics include principles of classical mechanics: vectors, kinematics, particle and rigid body rotational dynamics and statics; conservation laws; and thermodynamics. The course meets three times a week for two consecutive periods consisting of integrated lecture, discussion and laboratory. PHYS 111 was renumbered to PHYS 211. PHYS 211 has the same course content and fulfills the requirements of and replaces PHYS 111 on degree requirements/prereqs. Prerequisite: A minimum grade of C- in MATH 109 or MATH 113. NOTE: Students who receive credit for PHYS 211 may not receive credit for PHYS 109.
