Sugarmans honor graduate studentsí research
The 2009 Sugarman Awards for Excellence in Graduate Student Research in the physical sciences have been presented to physics students Jock McOrist and Ibrahim Sulai.
McOrist was cited “for his studies of world-sheet quantum corrections in the heterotic string.”
Sulai was cited “for the study of exotic phenomena in the helium atoms and nuclei using laser trapping and spectroscopy.”
The awards are named for the late Nathan Sugarman, who died in 1990.
Sugarman (S.B.,’37, Ph.D.,’41) was a charter member of the Enrico Fermi Institute and a longtime Professor in Chemistry.
