Science and Art

Photography with a femtosecond laser pulse and a high-speed camera.

James Turrell exhibit at MassMOCA.

The Feynman Lectures online.

LaTeX resources

The OIT software page links to LaTeX editors for windows and mac (I use TeXnicCenter.  WinEdt has some nice additional features but is not free).

JabRef is a free BibTeX-based reference manager (highly recommended when writing your thesis!–or even keeping track of papers you’ve read for classes)


Photon energy/wavelength/wavenumber/frequency/period (from the Halas group)
