ASTRON/UvA research practicum - 2012 edition

Submitter: Jason Hessels
Description: From January 23rd-25th, 2012, the ASTRON Astronomy Group hosted four undergraduate physics/astronomy students from the Universiteit van Amsterdam: Matthew Liska, Erik van Heusden, Eline Steijlen, and Laura Ootes.

This is the 4th year that ASTRON has hosted this annual research practicum, in which students get an introduction to how professional astronomical research is conducted.

The students learned some of the basics of reducing LOFAR pulsar data and investigated how the pulse profile morphology of pulsar B0943+10 evolves as a function of frequency from 30-160MHz.
