* Tian Yuan's visit to Rice University [#y6c45cbd]

** Internship at Kono lab [Last update by Tian March 5th] [#n4176fd4]
+ March 5th,
--- Project starts on the SHG, Andrey send in paper and results for me to read. I am learning what they are doing. If possible I want to have a discussion on this matter with Nguyen-san and Saito-sensei.  
+ March 4th, 
++ Discussed with Kono-sensei, Andrey and Manu, i can pick following researches.
+++ Second/higher order harmonic generation of molecule-inserted (6,5) SWCNT, enantinomer enriched. The data is enough that I can write a paper once I understand the story, IF im desparate to write a paper. Second harmonic generation molecule-inserted (6,5) SWCNTs.
--- What is your contribution on this paper? Nguyen-san can calculate second harmonic generation (SHG). What is the molecule?
--- "You will write the paper"-Said Andrey. I don't recall them metioning specific molecules. I will ask Andrey and Kono-sensei.
+++ (11,10) intersubband plasmon, intersubband magneto-plasmon and ISB plasmon polarton in a cavity.
--- Did you explain your calculation?
--- They know that we have calculation results but I didnt find the chance to explain my calculation, I have the data for detailed result and I will print it before Monday and send it to them with the explainations.
+++ CD in aligned (11,-5) film
--- We have the calculated data of (6,5) and (11,-5), Do they doped CNTs?
--- They didn't metioned it. I faintly recall them talking that if there is already paper published on CD of undopted CNTs they will try the doped ones.
+++ Detection of spin current via terahetz excitation. The terahetz device haven't been used for very long time and it can take half a year jsut to set up the devices. 
--- If you can start to set up, it won't take too much time. It should be a good practice for you. But you need any supervisor to set up since the set up is very expensive one. Ask Kono sensei.
--- Andrey stongly discourage me to do this research as he believe it will produce no results in this half year, then I told them I have a layout(from Mizukami-sensei). They asked me for the deatiled information. I will send the paper and presentation to them.
+ March 3rd, 
++ Procedures to get the ID card, Join the Kono workgroup on Slack, prepare for the discussion tomorrow afternoon.
+ March 2nd, 
++ Morning, visiting banks try to open bank account and obtain money.
++In the afternoon visit Rice U and the physcis building, meet with Kono-sensei and Xu-san,procedures to get the ID card.
+ Tian arrived at March 1st, 4 pm and spend the rest of the day battling paying the apartment

** Internship at Mizukami lab [#d87e7601]

+The experiment with Iihama-sensei on 2/8:
++ By using the kretschmann configuration, we try to use measure the spin current generated by the surface plasmon on a gold --> continue the experiment on Wednesday.

+ Fourth day's discussion with Iihama-sensei:
++ Second measurement of Py-Pt layer
++ Explain an calculate the Inverse Faraday effect with Iihama-sensei have problem. 

+ Third day's discussion with Iihama-sensei:
++ By using the magneto Kerr effect, we are measuring the spin injection of a Py-Pt layer
++ Explaining what is surface plasmon and the ways to excite surface plasmon

+ Second day's discussion with Iihama-sensei:
++ Introduction of the experiment layout,
++ The detection of Spin Current by Inverse Kerr Effect.
++ Experiment starts tomorrow.

+ First day's discussion with Iihama-sensei:
++ Methods to excite edge plasmon,
++ Inverse Faraday Effect,
++ Interaction of circularly polarized light with material: spin transfer torque and field induced torque?
