The REU students attended a talk by Dr. Metcalf today. He talked about
laser cooling and the general idea behind it. I wish I could listen to him
do a lecture about it and go through all the complicated derivations he
mentioned. It all tied in with Dr. Schneble's talk very well. Dr. Metcalf
agreed to let us tour his lab, too, at some point this week. It'd be nice
to see all the things I keep hearing about in his group meetings.
