Kenneth Pestka II and Jonathan Buckley present research at APS Meeting and Cook-Cole Poster Session.

Assistant professor of physics Kenneth A. Pestka II and Longwood undergraduate physics major Jonathan D. Buckley presented their research on the acoustic properties of self-healing polymers at the annual American Physical Society (APS) March Meeting of 2016. The APS March Meeting is the world’s largest annual physics conference with over 9,800 people in attendance for 2016.

Dr. Pestka spoke about, “Acoustic and ultrasonic characterization constraints of self-healing (ethylene-co-methacrylic acid) copolymers.” Kenneth Pestka II, Jonathan Buckley (16), Stephen Kalista, Nicholas Bowers

Jonathan Buckley presented a poster on, “Acoustic and Ultrasonic Spectral Evolution in Pre- and Post-Damage Self-Healing Poly (Ethylene Co-Methacrylic Acid) Ionomer Samples.” Jonathan Buckley (16), Kenneth Pestka II, Stephen Kalista

In addition, Jonathan Buckley will present a poster based on this research at the Cook-Cole Academic Research Poster Session on Thursday, April 21st, from 3:30-5pm in Blackwell Hall
