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.
Mentors: Theresa Lynn and Richard Haskell
Do five experiments in five days. Due to the simpler nature of these modern physics experiments, compared to the usual advanced lab experiment, participants enroll for all five and work through one experiment each day.
Carl Akerlof and Ramón Torres-Isea are your mentors.
Enrique ‘Kiko’ Galvez, a leader in this field, mentors this session.
Mary Lowe and Steve Wonnell are mentoring these immersions.
Chad Hoyt and and Nathan Lindquist are mentors for these experiments.
Eric Black and Kenneth Libbrecht will mentor you on these new versions of timeless topics.
Spectroscopy from the Familiar to the Novel:
David Pengra is mentoring these Immersions.
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.
Van Bistrow, Mark Chantell, and David McCowan mentor these experiments.
Mentor: Eric Ayars
Arturo Dominguez, Andrew Zwicker, and Jeremiah Williams present low-budget high quality experimental plasma physics experiments.
Herbert Jaeger, Maarij Syed, Mark Masters, and Jacob Millspaw will mentor you on these subjects.
Registration will cost $350.00 per experiment and includes lunch and one evening meal. Travel and Housing costs are the responsibility of the participants.
