    Which of these op amp configurations has the least noise?

    I need to run a signal through a configuration so that it has a gain of 1/2. I'm trying to figure out what the best way to minimize the noise for a low frequency input. So far I've only really thought of 3 ways to do this: 1. Voltage divider into a voltage follower 2. Measure the input so...

    Best programming language for aspiring physics and engineers?

    I suggest starting with C or C++. After learning C, you will have no problem picking up new languages as you go. For science and engineering, you will find that a lot of people use Python or Matlab becauseyhey have a lot of built in features that can make life easy. I would pick up either one of...

    Gaining independence as a postdoc

    I'm an undergraduate that is working with a postdoc. I've only met the PI 1 time, and I'm completely under the direction of the postdoc. The research we are doing is an offshoot of the project that the PI is working on. It uses the same experiment but focuses on a different aspect of it.

    Is Being an Engineering Student Really THAT Bad?

    If you really are good at math and physics, Electrical Engineering won't be as difficult as people make it out to be. I regularly take 18-19 credit semesters, and can still maintain good grades with about 4 hours of school work per day outside of class. If all of my courses have homework or...

    EE research fields

    I've got one more year left to finish my undergraduate EE degree and I'm planning on continuing straight into a PhD. I've had the chance to work with a postdoc on remote sensing/space science research and I've really enjoyed it. I've also developed an interest in neuroscience and plasma physics...
