Dear readers, As you read this, I’ll be trying to get to the Denver X-ray Conference in Montana. I’ll be giving a talk there on Friday morning introducing small-angle scattering to fellow X-ray afficionados and hopefully convert a soul or two to the narrow field we’re in. Please come and say hi if you’re around, […]
Dear Scatterers, Monday’s post will be delayed as I will be travelling to the Denver X-ray Conference. I didn’t manage to finish it in time due to an unexpected bike crash.
Dear readers, Unfortunately, this week I do not have anything ready for you. It is with great regret that I must therefore skip this week, and break my “once-a-week” posting schedule. Regular scheduling should return next week. Just a quick note, however. Thanks to Sylvain Prévost bringing this back to my attention; Brûlet et al. […]
During last week’s visit to BAM in Berlin, I and Ingo played around with some equations. In particular, we were curious if we need to do something special to get the scattering from a sample in a capillary, i.e. a sample between an upstream and a downstream sample cell wall. Long story short: we arrive […]
[ed: I'm giving a general SAXS talk at BESSY, the Berlin synchrotron on Friday the 11th at 10:00 local time. Contact me or Andreas Thünemann at BAM for more information] Whenever I think of General Electric, I imagine a stereotypical American company: a top-heavy organization, forcing its employees to learn and recite GE’s mission statement, […]
The long wait is over! A new publication is out, this one written by Martin Hollamby over the course of three tough years. For those who haven’t seen his one-minute intro video, Martin is investigating the behaviour of molecules in solvents. In his excellent paper, he shows how his range of molecules can self-assemble in (hydrophobic) […]
Indeed, we are already prety much halfway through the useful part of 2014, considering the latter half of December is a globally recognised period for scientific procrastination. It’s also a good time now to quickly give you an update about some of the things transpiring here.
[ED: I've started asking around for guest contributions for the LookingAtNothing site, in order to provide a broader view of the SAS-related activities than I could ever hope to achieve by myself. Our second guest to talk about his work is Dr. Jan Ilavsky of the Argonne National Laboratory.] Maybe you heard my name, Jan Ilavsky, perhaps in association with […]
The third part of the travel consisted of experiments and one final talk to top it all off.
