Electrons are all over the place, and they’re complicated! If only we could somehow model their wavefunctions… but with so many in a given molecule, that’s practically impossible! I wonder, is there an easier way to model a complicated wavefunction…? Yes! We can use machine learning to do this!

A great number of experimental Physics research involves understanding of optics and their arrangements. This project is designed to target a very specific problem: how to put optics into a box nicely? Specifically, we plan to use a combination of programming and CAD to build a software tool that facilitates the process of implementing and aligning optics in a box or on a baseplate, which could potentially be very helpful in the fields such as quantum computing (imagining having a quantum computer that looks like a traditional one).
