    own laptop Stipend Students in the LIGO Summer program receive a 6 000 stipend The schedule of stipend payments will be communicated prior to the start of the summer Housing Students in the LIGO Summer Program assigned to Caltech may live in Caltech housing during the program The total cost is roughly 30 of the stipend although exact rates will not be finalized until late spring There is no board contract but there is a cafeteria on campus Non Caltech students cannot move into Caltech housing before mid June More information is available at the Caltech Housing website Housing at LIGO s Hanford and Livingston sites will be provided at a charge that is approximately the same as Caltech housing Also arrangements will be made for daily transportation to and from the sites Transportation Transportation to and from Caltech Hanford Livingston at the beginning and end of the program can probably be provided in full for all students If there are insufficient funds for this partial funding will be provided to cover transportation costs Site specific information Students in the LIGO Summer Program reside either at Caltech or one of the LIGO sites in Washington or Louisiana Specify your preference

    Fellowship Carl Albert Rouse The National Society of Black Physicists NSBP sponsors the Carl Albert Rouse Undergraduate Research Fellowship for research with LIGO Laboratory About Carl Albert Rouse After earning a Ph D in Physics from the California Institute of Technology in 1956 Dr Carl Albert Rouse became the first African American to successfully enter into a career as a professional astrophysics researcher Dr Rouse s thesis research was in the field of particle physics After graduate school he took a position as a scientist at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory where he studied screened Coulomb interactions utilizing quantum mechanics theory Read an article of the American Astronomical Society published in the 2006 Spectrum Newsletter H Oluseyi Contributions from the first half century of African American solar astronomers pp 1 3 and 14 16 of the Committee on the Status of Minorities in Astronomy About NSBP Founded in 1977 at Morgan State University the mission of the National Society of Black Physicists is to promote the professional well being of African American physicists and physics students within the international scientific community and within society at large The organization seeks to develop and support efforts to increase opportunities for African Americans in physics and to increase their numbers and visibility of their scientific work It also seeks to develop activities and programs that highlight and enhance the benefits of the scientific contributions that African American physicists provide for the international community The society seeks to raise the general knowledge and appreciation of physics in the African American community NSHP and the Victor M Blanco Fellowship Victor M Blanco The National Society of Hispanic Physicists NSHP sponsors the Victor M Blanco Undergraduate Research Fellowship for research with LIGO Laboratory About Victor M Blanco Read an autobiographical essay by Victor M Blanco for the

  • Coating Measurement results LIGO COC
    Traylor indicates that the identity of the LLO core optics is as follows ETMx SPETM07 A ETMy SPETM05 RM RM04 B BS BS04 ITMx 4ITM03 C ITMy 4ITM02 C Thus careful measurements were made of the witness samples associated with these optics I confirmed the identity of each HR sample with the 1064nm laser on ISCT10 many of the samples have both the AR and the HR piece in the box Each sample was cleaned with C02 The input power was monitored and it never deviated in any significant way The behaviour of the samples was different Samples for the BS and RM had reflectivities that varied smoothly with angle no precipitous drops However the others ITM ETM and FM had structure particularly in the 0 25 degree range at heigher angles they tended to vary more smoothly For instance for the FM sample sweeping the optic through a fraction of a degree just across the face of the power meter at 3 you can see the reflected power go from about 0 8mW down to 0 2 mW and then back up to 0 8 or so I ve made a measurement every degree but this is still a
