Lab tours of instrumentation development for LIGO, CMB, and atom interferometry

May 08, 2018 - 11:00 am to 12:00 pm

Meet at Varian 355 at 11:00.

Gather in Varian 355 as usual to grab a donut and divide into three groups.  A “tour docent” will escort each group to three labs, where you’ll have the opportunity to see and hear about instrumentation development in each of these areas:

A.  Atom interferometry (e.g., for gravitational wave detection); guide: Jason Hogan B.  CMB detection; guides: Zeesh Ahmed, Shawn Henderson C.  LIGO vibration isolation system;  guides: Brian Lantz, Edgard Bonilla
