At the beginning of week three of research, the Surface Lab discovered that the third of three existing reference electrodes has met an untimely end. What is supposed to establish a stable potential reference point is no longer doing so. (The other two have been broken for at least a week.) We borrowed the Fluke digital multimeter from Dr. Remillard’s lab to measure the potential difference between the three broken electrodes.
Nick Wozniak measured the potential differences, while Emily Berger and Daniel McNeel recorded the results. Unfortunately, the results show that the electrodes are malfunctioning. However, new ones were ordered last week, and should arrive soon.
Afterwards, we posed for a fun Surface Lab photo.
