Project Update #1

We welcome three new phyphox team members: today Mosab Abumezied and Gaurav Tripathee started, Niklas Westermann has been (again) with us already for two weeks.

Mosab will work together with Dominik and Sebastian in the joint project Physik.SMART. This project is funded by the Foundation for Innovation in University Teaching. In cooperation with the University of Applied Sciences Aachen, a comprehensive set of smartphone-based experiments for a typical series of courses on experimental physics will be compiled and evaluated. For this purpose, a concept will be developed on how they can be integrated into the courses and tested along the way. The results will be made available as open source, hardware and educational resources.

Gaurav will support Sebastian in integrating the camera into phyphox. In the end, photometric and spectroscopic evaluations, the reading of measuring instruments and the analysis of movements should be possible. This project is funded by the Joachim Herz Foundation.

Niklas helps in the development of smartphone-based experiments and in the creation of a comprehensive database for existing and future ideas as well as their applications in practice.
