This week has focused on testing out new demonstrations for the SOCK, planning for our classroom visit, and lots of networking! Monday was mainly taken up with writing up some new explanations for our demos, as well as figuring out what to take to the 3rd grade outreach event.
I've continued to work on what will become an optimization code for the CLASS bolometers. After evaluating the intensity, power, and noise, I'll move on to optimizing the window for detection, which is limited by the opacity of the atmosphere.
his week has been extremely busy here at both the ACP and in Washington itself. After spending a great weekend at home celebrating my sister's graduation from high school, it was back to work bright and early Monday morning.
