This is the form for ordering and paying for Single Photon Detectors. This process is fairly lengthy so please read the following information that details each step. Remember that an all-volunteer crew runs this process so we appreciate your patience and ask that you are timely with your registration and payments so that the process goes as quickly as possible. We know you want those single photon detectors!
1) ALPhA will send the people at the top of the waitlist an email that will contain the information here so that everyone will know what is happening and when it is happening. At the bottom of that email, ALPhA will include a link to this registration page to order Single Photon Detectors. If you made it to this registration form, then you got this email and you are ready to buy your detectors! You will have 4 business days to fill out this form. If you do not fill out the form in that time frame or send us an email, then you will forfeit your spot on the waitlist and we will contact the next person on the waitlist.
2) On this registration form you will select the number of detectors, fill out your contact information, select your payment type (check, credit card, PO), and fill out your shipping details. The website will then generate an "order confirmation" which will be emailed to you at the email address you specified. If you have any questions about your order please email the ALPhA webmaster or treasurer.
3) Once we have every single photon detector accounted for using this form, then we will start to ship them. In this way, the person doing the shipping can ship all of the detectors at one time.
4) Once your detectors have been shipped, you will receive a shipping confirmation email with your shipping information, including tracking numbers.
5) Once you receive this shipping confirmation you have 30 days to pay for your detectors. If you selected to pay by credit card, then you need to XX. If you selected to pay by PO, then you need to XX. If you selected to pay by check, you should mail your check to XX.
6) Once we receive your payment you will get an email that says that your payment has been received. Please contact the ALPhA treasurer is you have questions about the status of your payment.
7) The website will send you a reminder once a week to pay your account. The ALPhA treasurer will also contact you after the 30 days to move things along. Please try to pay as quickly as you can. Our ability to offer the next round of single photon detectors depends on a timely payment to the AAPT for this round of detectors. If the payment is not timely, then the AAPT has said that they will discontinue the program. Please do not let that happen. Be as timely as you can with your payment.
