An Improved Optical SETI Detector
Shelley Wright, Frank Drake, Remington P. S.
Two detector optical SETI systems have experienced a surprising incidence of
false positive signals. We will discuss one origin of such signals and
describe a three detector system designed to compensate for this
difficulty. We are presently building such a device, which will be mounted
on Lick Observatory's 1-meter Nickel reflector.

Principal Author Biography
Shelley Wright is an undergraduate physics major at University of California,
Santa Cruz. Her work on this project will form the basis for her Senior
Thesis. Her life is a delicate balance between the oft-conflicting demands
of her academic efforts, building commercial Tesla coils, and surfing ("let
no good wave go unridden").
