Costanzi Publishes Paper on Physics15 October 2018
Visiting Assistant Professor of Physics Barry Costanzi published a paper titled “Noise in Mesoscale Magnetic Dots from Random Telegraph Noise to 1/f Noise” in the journal IEEE Transactions on Magnetics, with collaborators from the University of Minnesota and from Honeywell International Inc. The paper discusses experimental work on the characterization and engineering of thermal fluctuations (or “noise”) in magnetic samples on the mesoscale (~100s of nm in size), with applications toward explaining the origin of noise signals in many other physical systems. Costanzi also presented his work in an invited talk at the International Conference on Magnetism in San Francisco this summer.

Among the many reasons Carleton enjoys a strong reputation in the sciences is its penchant for project-based learning. Research is built into the undergraduate experience here—something students at other colleges might not experience until graduate school.
“The teachers here do a lot of research and put you in an experimental mindset,” says Malavika Suresh ’18 (Maple Grove, Minn.), a chemistry major. “You can take as many lecture classes as you want, but actually doing research teaches you in such a different way.”
