Research Laboratories


                    Left to right: Steven Taylor (Yeager Scholar), Abdul Abusalem, Thomas Wilson. Dr. Wilson explains how a ns-pulsed mini-YAG laser, under LabView computer-control, can be used to raster scan a heat pulse across a silicon crystal immersed in the liquid-helium cryostat shown in the foreground in order to image anisotropic phonons detected by a novel superconducting granular aluminum microbolometer (article submitted to Measurement Science and Technology)
