Hey Dr. Popson,
Just thought I would drop a line to you and let you know how things were
going up here at WVU. I have been working
in the plasma physics lab as a research assistant. Doing research is so great!
I have been put in charge of our laser system because of the laser research
I had from Wesleyan in the Electro-Optics lab.
I use a lasers to excite argon to a
metastable state. We connect a photomultiplier tube to data aquisition
equipment to determine the plasma density.
I presented my results at the American Physical Society
Conference in Orlando, Florida!!
I am also a co-author of
a paper. I will send you a copy if you
Other than that, classes are going well so far with Graduate
Mathematical Methods and Quantum Mechanics. Take care.
