    Every academic year Brown Physics awards the Galkin Foundation Fellowship to one outstanding senior graduate student in the Department of Physics. The Galkin Foundation Fellowship is made possible by the generosity of Warren Galkin (’51), a Rhode Island native who received an Sc.B. in Physics at Brown. This year’s Fellowship recipient, Rong Cong, impressed those who attended her virtual presentation, “Structural and magnetic properties of 5d double perovskites probed by nuclear magnetic resonance.”

    One of the biggest stories in physics this year involves the results of an experiment by a group of scientists at Fermilab that measured the g-factor of the muon. In a paper published in Physical Review Letters, the group found that measurements of the magnetic moment of the muon in Fermilab’s particle accelerator differed from what is predicted by the standard model of particle physics. Brown University Assistant Professor of Physics JiJi Fan discusses how to interpret those results...
