Underground science: Students in action


    Upstairs but still underground, Greg Harris demonstrates the newest thin-film deposition chamber. A foil-covered vaccum chamber designed to grown thin-film media while allowing measurments at the same time.

    “It’s the best vaccum of any chamber we have here,” Harris said.

    Students like Harris assist professors and spend a sizeable amound of time underground in the labratory.

    Yenny Martinez, a 21-year-old senior from Santa Ana, El Salavador majoring in physics said activity in the lab is nonstop.

    “I spend a lot of time down here,” Martinez said. “Some one is doing something every hour of the day.”
