Results of computer exercise (pi^0 mass resolution in
1st draft of NMR report
2nd draft of NMR report
1st draft of Chaos Experiment
2nd draft of Chaos Experiment
You will work on each experiment for about 4 scheduled lab periods.
This is a 2 credit hour lab but you will in general not be able
to complete the experiments and data analysis
in the scheduled lab periods.
Your team may have to arrange
to come in at other times for additional data taking.
I am generally available to
let you in to the lab (my office is WAT 233, down the hall)
will also be a key with Peter Huang in Rm 235 that you can
Note that you will have to make arrangements with me for use of radioactive
