research overview

  • Dr. Bohn's research studies interactions between molecules in the gaseous state at temperatures below one milliKelvin. His work seeks to better understand how chemical reactions occur and can be controlled in this unusual environment. A second area concerns properties of dilute, quantum degenerate Bose gases, especially those whose constituents possess electric dipole moments.

courses taught

  • PHYS 3210 - Classical Mechanics and Mathematical Methods 2
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2019 / Fall 2022
    Lagrangian and Hamiltonian treatment of theoretical mechanics, including coupled oscillations, waves in continuous media, central force motion, rigid body motion and fluid dynamics. The calculus of variations, linear algebra, tensor algebra, vector calculus, and partial differential equations will be introduced in the context of the mechanics.
  • PHYS 3310 - Principles of Electricity and Magnetism 1
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2022
    Covers mathematical theory of electricity and magnetism, including electrostatics, magnetostatics, and polarized media, and provides an introduction to electromagnetic fields, waves, and special relativity.
