In January 2020, Emily visited McGill University to learn about THz generation and detection. She worked with Prof. David Cooke and his graduate students, focusing mainly on a technique that uses air plasma as a medium for generating THz pulses and then detecting them with an air biased coherent detection system. The Cooke Lab is located in the Rutherford Physics Building, named after Ernest Rutherford, who is one of McGill’s most famous scientists! Emily also got to try poutine for the first time, and explore the city of Montreal.
