CSU Research Paper by Jessica Bickel and Andrew Resnick Appears on YouTube

Bickel Resnick Paper Highlighted on YoutubeA research article by Dr. Jessica Bickel and Dr. Andrew Resnick, an assistant professor and associate professor, respectively, in the Department of Physics, and undergraduate physics student Anna Ellis, was featured in a YouTube video on Adam Ragusea’s channel, which focuses on food science.

The article, titled “Examining the Temperature Dependence of Louche Formation in Absinthe,” appeared in ACS Omega, published by the American Chemical Society (ACS). The researchers investigated the formation of microemulsions in absinthe, an anise-flavored alcohol that forms a cloudy green coloration when water is added under the proper conditions.

Ms. Ellis was supported by the Undergraduate Summer Research Award (USRA) program and was part of CSU’s Soft Matter Research Experiences for Undergraduates (Soft Matter REU) while pursuing this research.
