Peter Gonthier, Professor of Physics, recently received a three year, $222,730 award from the National Science Foundation to study neutron stars. Dr. Gonthier will collaborate with Dr. Matthew Baring at Rice University on this project.
“This proposal aims to develop state-of-the-art models for the atmospheric emission of magnetars, focusing on what observers can detect with current telescopes and planned facilities,” Dr. Gonthier said. “The prime objective is to deliver a suite of observable signal predictions to enhance interpretation of data from X-ray telescopes.”
Congratulations, Peter, on your NSF award!
