I currently have 1 graduate students enrolled in PHYS 598.
The proceedure for requesting a thesis project is to come talk to me,
tell me your interests and I will try to come up with a project as close
to your interest area as I can, so long as it is in a field that I can
work in! I have been the advisor for the following thesis projects:
Frequency stabilization of the HeNe laser
classical relativistic radiation reaction and the [x,p] commutation relation
Dispersion relations and the velocity of light signals, can signals ever travel faster than c ?
Quantum and QED radiation reaction
Relativisitic Kapiza Dirac effect
You must also find 2 other people to act on your thesis committee, and ask their permission. I will make suggestions as to whom would be a likely committee member.
