Student Conducts Research at the South Pole
MARCH 10, 2006--Jonathon Eisch, a senior majoring in physics from Wisconsin
Rapids, was part of a group of engineers, students and scientists who
were building the biggest high-energy neutrino detector in the South Pole AMANDA profject. They installed
480 new deep-ice and 48 new surface Digital Optical Modules (DOMS) recently
to double the size of AMANDA, a neutrino detector. Eisch
has also recently spent time working on a cosmic ray detector, traveled
to Sweden with UW-RF physics professor Jim Madsen to share results and
make plans for a telescope for Antarctica, and spent Christmas 2003 at
the South Pole as well.
