The IEU-MS-DESI Fiber Testing (IBBOSS) Wiki

Welcome to the New 2013 Wiki of the IEU/Ewha Fiber Test Program working with the MS-DESI collaboration and experiment. Originally, MS-DESI was BigBOSS, so IEU-BigBOSS fiber test program was shortened to IBBOSS.

Bruce Grossan is the lead scientist carrying out measurements and experimental design;
Jongmann Yang is the Ewha-IEU Supervising Professor;
Changrim Ahn and George Smoot are IEU Members;
Sunin Lim is our capable and hard-working physics graduate student;
Wil Meijer of cal-poly San Luis Obispo is our guest engineer designer and machinist extraordinaire.

Please note that we are in transition to our new wiki format and many pages are stubs for now (2013 Dec.)


During 2014 June Visit,

  • We measured no damage during simulated proposed DESI Assembly procedures
  • We had a stable, believable set of twist measurements - PROGRESS!!!

Why Docuwiki?

mediawiki: more slick. Toolbar buttons better. Text sits in data base; images in image sub-sub directories with unpredictable names. Hell to back up or move/duplicate.

docuwiki: Exactly what I need - easy to back up and duplicate. All files just sit in the data directory under docuwikis/wikiname/data/media or /data/pages.

Why Docuwiki for IBBOSS

Note that the Amy Choco address above is correct, verified 2014 Mar 1. AT THIS TIME ALL OTHER ADDRESSES ON THE WEB ARE WRONG!!!! Use the correct address and/or geocoords or else you will have a difficult time finding it.


Best to have a link to google maps with geocoords. Geocoords can be used on my phone without connection or data link.

Getting Geocoords:

Phone - on iPhone, bookmark the location, then click on “share” - very subtle; must get directions pane then right-click so coords show in window.
