Daniel M. Kaplan received his Ph.D. in Physics in 1979 from the State University of New York at Stony Brook. He has taught electronics laboratory courses for non-electrical-engineering majors over a fifteen-year period at Northern Illinois University and at the Illinois Institute of Technology, where he is currently Professor of Physics and Director of the Center for Accelerator and Particle Physics. Christopher G. White graduated with a degree in Engineering Physics from the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign in 1986. He received his Ph.D. in Physics from the University of Minnesota in 1990 and is currently an Assistant Professor of Physics at the Illinois Institute of Technology. He is an enthusiastic and dedicated teacher who consistently receives high marks from his students.
