Peggy Elizabeth Atkinson

Peggy is an undergraduate student working on aspects of the optical lattice clock at UWA as an extension of a EQUS Vacation Scholarship project, in summer 2019. 

Her work includes building an extended cavity diode laser to serve as a repumping laser on the atomic clock, and data analysis to determine hyperfine splitting constants in Ytterbium.
