Summer students

(1/4) Dylan Smith is a research intern under scientist Erik Ramberg. He hails from Dearborn, Michigan, and is currently a senior at Michigan State University. In the test room at SiDet, there is a vacuum chamber with a charge-coupled device (CCD) coated in boron-10. His research goal is to characterize ultracold neutron events that occur when the neutrons hit the boron-10 and come into contact with the CCD. He's also been working with software that simulates particle tracks in silicon, with the eventual goal of designing a method to calculate the incident angle of alpha particles that hit a silicon target. people Photo: Leticia Shaddix

(2/4) Judah O'Neil, a SIST intern, assists in setting up the testing station for astro skipper CCDs. The project entails working closely with both the engineering team and the astrophysicists to obtain, by the end of the summer, a prototype package intended to run on a world-class telescope. Here, he works on on installing the LakeShore temperature controller. It will help them control the cooling and heating of the cool plate inside the vacuum chamber as well as obtain real-time temperature readings. This working is being done at SiDet in one of the Test rooms. people Photo: Leticia Shaddix

(3/4) Rosemary Halenza is an undergrad at South Dakota State University working at Fermilab as a technician for CMS under Ron Lipton. She is majoring in electrical engineering with a minor in physics. Rosemary is setting up an a very old probe station in order to take resistance measurements on dummy MaPSAs for the outer tracker components for CMS. people, CMS Photo: Leticia Shaddix

(4/4) Here, she measures the resistance on dummy MaPSAs for the outer tracker components for CMS. Rosemary started at Fermilab on a DOE Community College Internship program while she was attending College of DuPage, and this is her fourth year back. She must like it here! people, CMS Photo: Leticia Shaddix
