Our repump laser is in Germany getting an upgrade. However, we wanted to continue working on the MOT experiment. So we got out Repump laser by modulating our trapping light by 6.8 GHz and then injection locking to the side band as we have discussed in our past work. Only we didn’t do this to …
Jessan Jishu, a junior physics major at Adelphi University, wrote the following article: The Case for Writing in Math Classes https://medium.com/tech-based-teaching/the-case-for-writing-in-math-classes-cb73bb998fb6 I agree. Our Adelphi Physics Department has enhanced our laboratories in advanced classes with advanced technical writing training. More to come on this soon. Great work Jessan!
Great work everyone who helped out! Our newly updated observatory is back in business. Look for cool results and activities from our new observatory team lead by Anthony Romagnolo (Senior) and Colleen Williamsen (First Year).
