Concepts/skills: Programming (Python), CAD, Lab Optics
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).
