ALPhA’s Laboratory Immersion experiences provide participants with two to three days of intensive hands-on work with a single advanced laboratory experiment. Enrollment is limited to two to three participants per experiment to ensure a confidence-building experience. The offerings for spring and summer 2016 are shown below.
The Jonathan F. Reichert Foundation has established a grant program to help purchase apparatus used in Laboratory Immersions. Limitations and exlusions apply, but generally speaking the foundation may support up to 40% of the cost of the required equipment.
Herbert Jaeger, Mark Masters, Jacob Millspaw, and Khalid Eid are mentoring these Immersions.
Mark Beck, a leader in the field, leads this session.
Enrique ‘Kiko’ Galvez, another leader in this field, mentors this session.
Isaac Silvera and Ashley Carter will be your mentors.
Jim Parks and Christine Cheney are mentoring these classic experiments.
Bob DeSerio is mentoring both sessions.
Eric Black and Kenneth Libbrecht will mentor you on these brand new apparatus.
Arturo Dominguez, Andrew Zwicker, and Jeremiah Williams show how to teach experimental plasma physics on a very low budget.
Carl Akerlof, Philip Hughes, and Ramón Torres-Isea will mentor you through these experiments.
Chad Hoyt and and Nathan Lindquist are mentors for these experiments.
Ram Rai, Jonathan Reichert, George Herold, Carl Grossman, David Van Baak, and Michael DeMarco will mentor you on these experiments, almost all of which are available commercially.
New to ALPhA! Richard Liptak and Maarij Syed will mentor you on these experiments.
Registration will be $350.00 per experiment and includes lunch and one evening meal. Travel and Housing costs are the responsibility of the participants. Suggested housing and travel arrangements are posted here.
