The Bonse Hart instrument works!

Ok, so let’s start with the disclaimer: very initial results (fresh off the instrument, hence the delay), and the primary beam intensity is still very, very weak (flux at sample position: ~5kHz, at 10% generator power). Background detection level is typically on the order of 1 Hz.

With that out of the way, this year might be different from others on this weblog, as I have to spend oodles of time on my “favourite” activity: trying to publish. […]

Introducing Scientists: Videos

I have worked with ResearchSEA on getting some videos out there to promote the sciences. I have been interviewing some people, condensing their stories into a minute(-ish) of Youtubey goodness. The videos are available on the new ResearchSEA website here and here. They are the first two, there will be more at a rate of about one […]
