Professor Matt Wright’s group at Adelphi University has a number of research projects, including lasers to control atomic collisions, studying how fruit flies interact with magnetic fields, and how students use video podcasts to improve their learning. Advertisements
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!
