For Group Members

Group meetings Wednesdays at 9.15 am in kc7

These meetings are mandatory for everyone using the optical tweezers laboratories. In the fall we present our projects, in the spring papers. Anybody who finds the topic interesting is welcome. The person responsible for the presentation is also responsible for bringing bread.

Password: Ask Lene.

On weekdays, please stick to time-slots either before or after 2 PM. You can have at most 3 reservations per week during normal work hours (Mon-Fri 8-18). On holidays and weekends, you are welcome to reserve the equipment at any time.

Internal Documents and wiki

The group has a wiki for storing various experimental protocols and manuals for the different optical setups. It can be found here.

Ask Lene for username and password.
