Day 5

This morning we got another short lecture, this time we learned about how different parts of the spectrometer work. We then followed the instructions we made yesterday to turn on the EPR spectrometer. After about an hour of working, the fire alarm went off and everyone had to exit the building. It turns out it was not a drill, but it was just a false alarm. There was a firetruck there though. After that, we worked on filling out a spreadsheet that can be used to plot the readings for each sample. I had lunch with the other interns, which was really chill. This afternoon, Zihao and I started writing our abstract so that we can have it done by Friday. We then ran more samples through the spectrometer, and plotted their graphs. A lot of the samples don't seem to have a spectrum, which has been a little frustrating. Even one that we thought would have a spectrum (Victoria Green), didn't. So, in conclusion my day was prefominanlyu. (@ Madi)
