Summer Research in Physics (Godswill, Hope’26)

Godswill (Hope’26) is continuing Hope College Particle Accelerator Research. Here he is finishing mixing up some Stannous fluoride standards which are much safer then PFOA. PFOAs are carcinogenic fluoride compounds that contaminate the environment. He is using the particle accelerator to see if he can quantify PFOAs to parts per billion.
