I stayed after to see if I could finish the experiment. The first plate never got down to .5 V, a problem I solved in the second plate by changing the applied voltage to .05 V. Running this plate encountered errors, because the cart that the LEDs were plugged into does not function. If in the future, when running a plate, in the initialization phase, the LEDs do not flash, it means there is no power running through the system. Be sure to check in this phase to make sure everything is on. After that, everything ran relatively smoothly, our results were not particularly good, nothing over .06 V, when a good test would run at 4-5 V. I think this may be partially due to the amount of time that passed between us making the plates and us testing them. While they should have annealed entirely, preventing this issue, I think that given the month between the plates' completion and their utilization, the salts may have decomposed slightly.
Things to remember from this experiment: 1. ALWAYS check the power for every piece of the apparatus. 2. If the dark current is not going below .5, change the Applied Voltage to .05<v
