Tuesday July 28
Today, in the morning we had class in the computer lab where I got a little caught up on what I missed while I was gone last Thursday. In the afternoon, Chris and I went into the MicroE building again to look for quartz wafers for the vortex lens experiment. There was not any that we could use, but we are buying them and are probably going to start on regular glass or silicon. Also, we tried printing on PVA with the printer, which did not work as well as planned, and the PVA that was sent to us has not been working as a polarizer at all with the ink. Tomorrow I am attending a talk sometime around lunch, and the rest of the day will be spent trying to make progress on the things that went wrong today.
