Day 163: The Holometer and Holographic Principle

Today was the last day with all of the seniors in my AP Physics 2 class. Near the end of each school year, I take a day and share with them my experience working at Fermilab in the summer of 2011 on the Holometer experiment – my adventure exploring the smallest intervals of space and time and preparing to explain it to high school students. Most students find the idea of the holographic principle fascinating and the Holometer experiment very interesting. I share photos, stories, and diagrams. I share with them my passion for this experiment and how it is an amazing combination of theoretical physics, experimental physics, engineering, and software. Afterward, I share with them a series of posts I wrote about the Holometer and Holographic Principle as part of my summer work. I also have created an Evernote notebook of articles and videos.
