Physics Club is sponsoring the following
Thursday, April 8, 2004
will be a tour of the research facilities of the Synchrotron Radiation
Center, the research labs of the physics department, the
Madison Symmetric Torus,
and the research labs in engineering physics on Thursday, April 8, 2004.
We may also have a brief visit with
Karen Andeen ('03) who is a first year physics graduate student. The tour
starts at 10:00 am at the SRC. Here is the schedule:
Here is a list on those who went on the trip. Last update: April 8. Here are other directions and contacts.
The Synchrotron Radiation Center is a research laboratory operated as a national facility by the Graduate School of the University of Wisconsin. It uses an electron storage ring (Aladdin) to produce synchrotron light, which is used by scientists from all over the world to conduct experiments.
Here is a list of areas in
the the physics department that have ongoing
The Department of Engineering Physics has nanotechnology labs, micro-mechanics and solid mechanics labs, a tokamak to do fusion experiments, plasma-aided manufacturing labs, fluid flow/reactor safety labs, a shock tube lab, and an ion-materials interaction (accelerator) lab.
