Great news, the lab has now had its first set of UC Santa Barbara undergraduates on a publication that came out today in PRA. The work measured a specific transition in Ra+ to resolve a discrepancy between previous values by means of directly driving the transition in question. Grad student Craig Holliman spearheaded the entire effort, really leading the others scientists on the paper. As an advisor it was great to watch Craig take full ownership of this experiment, organize people to configure the experimental setup, write code for data taking, take the data, and perform the data analysis. Undergrad Michael Straus made critical contributions to the data analysis, and undergrad Asad Contractor was instrumental in setting up the experiment, taking data and helping refine the manuscript that Craig wrote.
