Search for Magnetic Monopoles: from the Large Hadron Collider to Space

Student can get involved in the following aspects of the project: 1. Development of novel radiation detectors optimized for the magnetic monopole searches. The detectors are to be deployed at the Large Hadron Collider, CERN, and in space using CubeSat satellites. Experience with electronics (charge-sensitive amplifiers, impedance matching) and/or micro-fabrication techniques (physical vapor deposition, photolithography) is a plus. 2. Simulation of the galactic and solar magnetic fields to study propagation and detection of cosmological and astrophysical sources of magnetic monopoles....

3D modeling, CNC machining and extrusion molding

I am looking for a student who is interested in learning 3D modeling, CNC machining and extrusion molding. My lab has a very nice CNC machine, Tormach 440 (see here https://www.tormach.com/pcnc-440/). I plan to utilize this CNC machine to make plastic enclosures for the small wearable sensors. First, 3D models of enclosures and molds to make these enclosures need to be designed in Fusion 360 software. Then the molds need to be machined out of wax and tested. When the molds are fully tested, we will need to machine them from aluminum. The machined molds then will be used with a plastic extrusion machine to make enclosures. This is a rather involved project but a fun learning experience for anyone interested in advanced manufacturing....
