    [Section_Field3] => Biographical Sketch
    [Section_Value3] => <p>Dr Er joined WKU Physics department as an assistant professor in 2014. He received his B.S. in 2004 from ODTU, Ankara Turkey and his PhD in physics from Old Dominion University under supervision of Prof Dr Hani Elsayed-Ali. After completing his PhD in 2011, he moved to University of California Irvine Chemistry Department where worked as a postdoctoral scholar with Prof Dr Peter Rentzepis. After spending two years at UCI, he accepted another postdoctoral position at Princeton University Chemistry Department to work with Prof Dr Herschel Rabitz.</p>
<p>He has several awards and a patent for his PhD and postdoctoral studies. He has also been appointed as associate professor by Higher Education Institute of Turkey in 2014. His research background includes pulsed laser deposition of quantum dot growth, time resolved x-ray diffraction, nanoscale heat transport in thin films, photodeactivation of pathogenic bacteria and viruses in human blood, optical discrimination of fluorescent proteins by using quantum control techniques, and selective bond breaking of semiconductor surfaces. He has collaborated actively with researchers in several other disciplines of engineering, chemistry, biology, and material science.</p>

<li>Finite Element Method, other deterministic Methods, and Monte Carlo Computations for future courses in nuclear physics and math methods.</li>
<li>Interest in finding the optimal meeting point between (traditional rigorous methods of math instruction) and (inclusion of &lsquo;Smart&rsquo; symbolic software). I seek the optimal meeting point of where to start using in Mathematica as an inspiration and assistant to the student. I urge teachers of intense intermediate physics courses to be careful not to overwhelm novices to its level of abstraction and the temptation within such software to do everything for the student. The graphics in Mathematica can be a great learning tool to help the advanced student visualize the structure of a solution of a physics based equation. On the other hand, Matlab is popular among EE instructors and often of their students. Matlab encourages the introductory student to develop good programming habits and to be efficient in handling data. But Matlab, does not have the ability find analytical solutions with the effectiveness or elegance of Mathematica.</li>

<h3>Sample Poster Presentations</h3>
<p>(to spur Conversations in classic Field Theory)</p>
<p>In the SESAPS Conference of 2017, I presented a poster on the way a superconducting sphere generates Meisner surface currents of electricity in response to a magnetic dipole verses the response it would generate in response to a magnetic monopole in the same corresponding position with the same velocity. The hypothetical question is whether mag. Monopoles even exist in our solar system. A minority believe in them. This is a fun exercise in classical field theory, even if it is highly unlikely.&nbsp;</p>
<p>In the SESAPS conference of 2015, I presented a poster on quantum mechanical analysis of the Penning Trap to hold charged particles, a fulfillment of Landau &amp; Lifshitz&rsquo;s work for 2D-confinment.&nbsp;&nbsp;The famous text does not include the Hamiltonian for a complete Penning trap.&nbsp;The poster does address low energy level and eigenstates found for a quantum mechanical Penning trap. (Note to the advanced:&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Fermion characteristics of multiple electrons not considered in poster.)</p>
<p>Title:&nbsp;&nbsp;<a>Full analytical Expressions of the Quantum Mechanical Energy Eigenstates of charged Particles confined in a Penning Trap at non-relativistic Energies</a></p>
