Physics students Erik Cauley PHYS’22 and Dan Fauni PHYS’23 both gave virtual presentations. Cauley presented "Design and Construction of Electronics for Measuring Superconducting-to-Normal State Switching Statistics of a Josephson Junction", while Fauni presented "How to do Physics Outreach during the COVID Pandemic".
In addition to student presentations, associate professor of physics Roberto Ramos PhD presented a talk entitled "Determining the two Energy Gaps of an Asymmetrical Thin Film MgB2 Josephson Junction"
Both Cauley and Fauni’s presentations were made possible through Dr. Ramos’ IREG grant from the Charles Kaufman Foundation.
