UT Researchers Make First-Ever 6D Measurement of Accelerator Beam

A team of researchers led by University of Tennessee, Knoxville, physics professor Sarah Cousineau has made the first-ever 6D measurement of an accelerator beam, an achievement that has eluded scientists for decades.

The new measurement will advance understanding of what goes on inside accelerators and help scientists and engineers build more powerful ones in the future. The findings were published in the journal Physical Review Letters today.

Cousineau co-authored the paper with UT graduate student and lead author Brandon Cathey and Oak Ridge National Laboratory’s Alexander Aleksandrov and Alexander Zhukov.

Rosinski Honored by the Kosciuszko Foundation

The Kosciuszko Foundation selected Jan Rosinski, professor in the Department of Mathematics, as an Eminent Scientist of Polish Origin and Ancestry in 2018. Fewer than 400 scientists, 21 of whom are mathematicians, have received this prestigious honor.

“Naturally, I was very proud and honored to be included in this list,” Rosinski says. “Together with a letter and diploma, I received an invitation to the annual dinner and ball in New York City, celebrating Poland’s 100th Anniversary of Independence. My wife Wanda and I attended and met many accomplished and interesting people of Polish descent living in various parts of the United States and associated with the Foundation.”

Founded in 1925, on the eve of the 150th anniversary of Thaddeus Kosciuszko’s enlistment in the American revolutionary cause, the Kosciuszko Foundation is a national not-for-profit, nonpartisan, and nonsectarian organization. The Foundation promotes closer ties between Poland and the United States through educational, scientific, and cultural exchanges. It awards up to $1 million annually in fellowships and grants to graduate students, scholars, scientists, professionals, and artists, and promotes Polish culture in America.

Record Number of Students Earn Gilman Scholarships to Travel Abroad

A record-setting 17 UT students received Gilman Scholarships during the 2017–18 academic year.

The Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship Program supports American undergraduate students of limited financial means in studying or interning abroad. Since 2001, it has enabled more than 25,000 students to engage in educational experiences around the world.

Gilman Scholars receive up to $5,000 to apply toward international study or internship program costs with additional funding available for the study of a crucial language overseas.

“This scholarship is very important, especially at UT, given how many of our students are Pell-grant eligible,” said Karen Richters, Gilman advisor at UT.
