Stop by to see the camera for a prototype CTA telescope. The lab location is one block from the meeting venue: Room 1146 Chamberlin Hall, 1150 University Ave. You're welcome to come any time during this hour. This is a camera based on silicon photomultipliers and is now undergoing integration, testing, and calibration. It will be installed on the prototype Schwarzschild Couder Telescope, which is a 9.6 meter dual-mirror telescope under construction at the Fred Lawrence Whipple Observatory in Arizona. More information on the camera, telescope, and a live webcam of the telescope: http://cta-psct.physics.ucla.edu
