Nice Digs May 26, 2006Posted by gordonwatts in physics life, travel.
I'm at SLAC today and tomorrow, attending a detector and daq interface workshop for the new photon light source. The light source will produce very short very intense burst of x-rays to study crystal structure (among other things. I was asked down here to talk about the DAQ system they are going to have to build.
This is my first time at SLAC. Wow, talk about a nice campus: very different from Fermilab. Where Fermilab is open and full of fields and old run-down barns, SLAC has lots of hills, trees. And the dorm rooms are, well, real rooms, not dorm rooms as I remember them at Fermilab. Very nice!
And where else can you see the mountains from the doorway??
