|Project Summary||Project Information|
In the burgeoning field of quantum optics, it is imperative to have the ability to readily test and validate any experiments pertaining to research. The current state of quantum optic test benches are devices that are large, heavy, and are inefficient with power draw. These set back make testing research ideas slow, costly, and some times unreliable as the test platform can change from experiment to experiment.
The goal of this project would be to design a modular sub-system on which to build a test system designed for quantum optics experimentation. This modular design would allow experimenters the ability to keep the test platform relatively consistent from experiment to experiment by retaining the same power and controller boar while only having to swap out "research boards". The modular design would also allow for a more robust design as analog domains could be separated from the digital domain increasing the noise immunity of the system. Lastly, the modular design would follow a rigid form factor as well as weight, both of which will lead to a reduction in the size and weight of the overall test platform.

One or two paragraphs that provide a general description of the project in terms of background, motivation(s), customer(s), and overall objective(s). Use your creative talents to include photos, short video clips, or other information to quickly and effectively help prospective student team members learn what the project is all about, and how they would be able to contribute.

Content Guidelines: Use these links below to guide you in populating your website. A few points to consider:
- Be aware of any information that you or your sponsor might not want publicly available: confidential information, personal phone numbers, photos, etc. You can use the private directory for this information, and it will be available only to those users with Guest access to your site. Remember that once you post something online, it's nearly impossible to remove it entirely!
- Do not post any files on your site that are not yours, unless you are certain that they are in the public domain or you have received permission to post them. Examples of files that you should avoid posting are copies of published papers, standards documents, textbook chapters/excerpts, or copyrighted images. If you have received a .pdf of a paper through Interlibrary Loan, or purchased an ASTM or ISO standard, you may post it in the private directory, where only your team and guide will have access to it.
- If you are including contact information for people that would otherwise not be publicly available, make sure you have their permission. For example, your faculty advisor's email address and office phone number are already publicly available on the KGCOE website, and is fine to post. However, if he or she has provided a cell phone number to the team, that is most likely not public information and should not be posted without explicit permission.
- Comment out this text once you've read it.
