Day 3 Summary

Today was the first day spent entirely in the lab, mornings in the lab are much more quiet than afternoons, and I just took notes on specific section of a textbook on signal to noise ratios in optics and their sources. For lunch, the REU students and some of the interns attended an hour or so long talk by Dr.Easton on his work on historical documents. While the talk was long, the content of Easton's work is very interesting and it was fun learning about the different processes he uses and the progression of those processes over time. After lunch I figured out the derivation of the first signal to noise ration in the paper, and spent the rest of the day looking at the Matlab code for the OD sensor.
