2004:

Summer '04 crew, from left: Matt Nyflot ('05), Dr. Engbrecht, Joey Paulsen ('07), and Casey Johnson ('06)

Matt worked on lifetime spectroscopy software and the DNA experiment.

Joey developed the analysis software for the gas-scattering experiment.

Casey optimized the electronics and data acquisition system for the gas-scattering experiment.

 

2003:

Summer '03 crew, from left: Mike Erickson ('04), Matt Nyflot ('05), and Dr. Engbrecht

Mike led development of the software and electronics for the 2D data acquisition system.

Matt led development of the hardware for both the positronium thermalization experiment and the DNA experiment.
