                     Los AngelesTeachers Alliance Group (LAPTAG)

 

                                Main LAPTAG-UCLA web page                                                                            Why join  plasma?                   

                   

                                         The High School Plasma Lab was open to all  students interested in physics. Due to the high demand

                                         on the part of high school students there was a waiting list for those interested. There are no academic requirements for being

                                         in LAPTAG. Please don’t send transcripts or other data. All that is required is a serious desire to do/learn

                                         experimental physics. We were looking for Freshman through Juniors in high school.  Students were notified as space was available. 

                                        

                                         We met most Saturdays from 9:30 am to 2 pm. Tours of the facility can be arranged.   

                                    The K12 teachers involved with LAPTAG are Robert Baker (Wildwood School), Ken Marmie

                                         (Theodore Roosevelt Middle School in Glendale, CA) and Joe Wise (Wildwood School).

                install electron beam emitter, look at behavior

                of beam at different magnetic field intensities

              

                   

                                   Next Meeting 

                        Due to a heavy workload LAPTAG will pause.

                     Congratulations ! The poster presentation at 58th meeting

                  APS Division of Plasma Physics at San Jose was well received.

                               

                                Capture images of electron beam at different magnetic field intensities and with a magnetic mirror in place.

                                Design a 3D positioner for the B dot and Langmuir probes. Must be able to tolerate 12,000 K,

                                survive at 10^-4 torr, must be shielded from outside GHz electromagnetic radiation, must use shielded

                                cable which can bend. Due asap
