Almost all of the pictures below were taken by Kazem Edmond, except where noted.

Lab Room

We had a lab room we shared with Ken Schowalter (Ken's space was on the other side of the gray cabinets). We had a table with a microscope & computer; we used the computer to grab movies from the CCD camera on top of the microscope. We used some putty to help attach the camera to the old microscope.
