During this summer Ileana Dumitriu and her research students Candace Carducci '15 and Joshua Moss'14 participated in an experiment at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. They studied the interaction of Carbon negative ion clusters wit X-rays. During the experiment the students worked in shifts as they collected and analyzed data. They got very good results, and were able to see change in the electronic properties of the cluster with its size - very exciting for the atomic physics community! After the experiment they went camping in Yosemite National Park. It was beautiful and unforgettable.
