The ERGO interns have a lot planned for this summer. Here are some of their exciting projects:
- Building twenty more ERGO pixels
- Working on several methods for wireless telemetry various field experiments
- Balloon launch – to measure cosmic rays in high altitudes
- Gulf-stream ocean drifting buoy
- Rocket-launch payload for Italy
- Deep-sea sounding experiments
- Investigation of link between cosmic rays and lightning
- New ways for users to be able to access ERGO data
- Design of a totally new Gen3 lower-cost ERGO pixel with touch-panel control and data display
- Classroom experiments with cloud chambers and electroscopes
- Investigation of the sensitivity of ERGO pixels to variations in temperature and pressure
- Experiments with muon-specific low-cost detectors for possible inclusion in the Gen3 ERGO pixel.
That’s keeping us all pretty busy. There’s quite a crowd of enthusiastic interns here at the Syntheon lab. Thanks to Jeff, Valentina, James, Cesar, Daniel, Win, Lucas, Simon, Steven, Sloane, Christopher, Hunter, Jordi, Kenneth, James, and Cole!
