Quarknet Summer Research
The Quarknet summer program at the University of Iowa consisted of many different activities. We had a data acquisition team, a vapor deposition team, a virtual control room team, a web team, a fiber damage team along with helping the staff with its various research projects. Quarknet brought seven high school students and three high school teachers to the research facility in the Van Allen building on a daily basis for eight weeks. There, we blended with the research effort to help accomplish the goals of the High Energy Physics team let by Dr. Yasar Onel. We were solely in charge of data acquisition, fiber damage and vapor deposition. We collaborated with the staff on the virtual control room, the web page and testing of materials for use in the Compact Muon Solenoid detector at CERN.
