CA work concentrates on the use of modern technology to improve the students conceptual understanding of basic physical concepts. These efforts include computer visualizations, active lecture demonstrations, and computer graded homework assignments.
CA research interests are in the study of microstructure and dynamics of condensed matter using x-ray and neutron scattering techniques and in the design and construction of instrumentation for neutron scattering. Her recent studies are about the static and dynamical properties of molecular (hydrogen bonded) and quantum systems in bulk and confined geometry. Examples includes diatomic fluids, hydrogen halides, H2O, H2, D2,3He, 4He and 3He/4He mixtures.
Neutron scattering, is an important tool for the study of the properties of matter at the nanoscale since it provides unique quantitative information. Neutron represents a reciprocal space probe of microscopic correlations in bulk sample, providing relevant information to nanoscience and application to nanotechnology, which add and complement real space visualization and manipulation of matter on the nanometer scale. CA has design and constructed instrumentation for DINS (Deep Inelastic neutron Scattering) a technique providing unique microscopic information on the local environment of light atoms and molecules in a variety of environments. Much of this work has centered on studies of the single particle momentum distribution, n(p), a physical quantity, which can be directly measured using DINS. Her most recent work has been addressed to the study of liquid 3He-4He mixtures, where the interplay between Bose and Fermi statistics dominates the behaviour, and to liquid water in nanopores.
