I am currently a third year applied physics student studying at Dublin City University. This is my website where I post updates to projects I am currently working on, as well as recently read books, copies of my submitted lab reports and a copy of my CV. I coded this website in Atom using HTML, CSS and Javascipt and hosted it to the internet using a Raspberry Pi 4 Model B during the summer of 2020 as a personal project. If you would like to read more about that feel free to check out the blog post about it here.
[BLOG POST] Beginning on March 12th 2020 all schools and colleges in Ireland closed in an effort to combat SARS-CoV-2, a novel disease which targeted the respiratory system which we would discover on March 14th had 39 confirmed cases in the country. This closure was initially supposed to last until the 29th of March, however it would actually end up ... Blog Post 1
[BLOG POST] As part of our PS157 Physics Laboratory II module we are given a project that we must research, carry out any necessary experiments before finally giving a presentation on what we learned, how the experiment went and any of the information we obtained from our experiments. Me and my lab partner were given the topic of Laue Diffraction ... Blog Post 2
[UPDATE] Added my final lab report for year 1 semester 2, This lab report was actually a 1 page progress report that we had to submit regarding the research project we were doing on laue diffraction. If you would like to take a look at the progress report ... Lab Report
[BLOG POST] On the 12th of December 2019 me and two of my fellow colleagues gave a presentation about the particle zoo in physics, which is a commonly used term to refer to all the different particles scientists have discovered over the years including Quarks, Anti-quarks, Leptons, Hardons etc. The presentation was cleverly titled 'Noah's Quark', ...

I write blog posts about my experience studying physics and my love of optics and photonics. In the future I hope to go on and do research in the area of physics related to either optics or photonics. My dream is to one day get a PhD in physics.
Check back to hear more about me. I will update this website as I continue to carry out more personal projects which I feel are interesting or relevant to my field. - Jamie Somers. B.Sc (hons) in Applied Physics. Studying at Dublin City University.
To date I have taken part in one research project related to helping students from social economically disadvantaged areas understand the concepts of AI and the role it plays in their daily life.
I have also taken part in a physics summer research internship titled "Automated Data Conversion For Mapping a Transparent Conducting Materials Figure Of Merit". The project involved using python / matlab to produce heatmaps and figures of merit related to the conductivity and transparent of Transparent Conducting Materials (TCM's)
Jamie Somers is a 3rd year B.Sc in Applied Physics student at DCU. He is interested in Optics & Photonics. Jamie Somers is looking for research opportunities.
During my time studying physics at university, I have written 30 lab reports. Below I have included the names of each lab report.
