Attendance and participation in all classes. Each Thursday before class (by 1:00 PM) each student will submit two questions or statements (one for each paper) via e-mail to the instructors. These questions or statements can be a criticism of an experiment, a proposed follow-up experiment to the work done, or simply a question about a technique used in the paper.
Based on the material covered in class, write a 2-page project proposal. This proposal will outline experiments to address a frontier problem in the field.
Oral presentation. Students will present 2 page research proposals (above) to the class. Each will be a 10-15 min slideshow presentation describing background, experiments and expected results.
