Grow your own piezoelectric crystal.

Session Leaders: Michelle Temple

Created By: Michelle Temple

From phonographs to sonar - microphones to radios, piezoelectric crystals have been at the heart of many inventions. This course will be half lecture/discussion and half hands-on. We\\'ll discuss the basics of crystallography and applications of piezoelectricity. The lab will give you all the instruction and materials needed to start growing your own piezo crystal. Finally, as a class we\\'ll examine crystals under a microscope in polarized light.

I'd love to do this class but I have in the day. Any chance for a 6pm or weekend version of this class?

@alinab I wouldn't mind teaching a second class on the weekend, but there would have to be enough interest to justify it, I think :) Thanks!

+1 for a weekend version, or maybe video recording of that session?
