Having been busy/away for the last three weeks, as usual I am way behind with my physics course. With summer school at Sussex University coming up at the end of July, I have an additional set of questions to answer (a CMA, in the jargon) by July 3rd.

Summer school is experimental physics, so we will be measuring the Hall effect at different temperatures, looking at superconductivity, measuring the doppler efffect with microwaves and running a bunch of computer-based field simulations.

Since this is based on physical reality, not theory, there is going to be a lot of messing around with liquid nitrogen, conveyor belts (for the doppler reflector) and high voltages.
