Yi Wei is an undergraduate scientific researcher pursuing bachelor’s degrees in physics and computer science at Coe College along with a minor in mathematics. Since 2001 he has been involved in publishable research in glass science including the extension of the glass-forming range and determining physical properties of alkali tellurites and vanadates. Several presentations at PhysCon, the Iowa Glass Conference, and the UK Society of Glass Technology Annual Meeting have or will be made, and a paper on this work. In addition, a paper has been submitted to Physics and Chemistry of Glasses. Also, in a second research project, he participated in probing the local atomic structure of a very wide range, even up to 85 molar percent PbO, of lead borate glasses with X-ray Absorption Spectroscopy. This work took place in the summer of 2023 in a new collaboration between Prof. Feller’s group at Coe College and Prof. Alamgir’s group at Georgia Institute of Technology.
