The third part of the travel consisted of experiments and one final talk to top it all off.
Lille and Birmingham were on the plan for the Friday and Monday, respectively.
York and Leeds, the first 40% of the presentations all done. Still to go: Lille, Birmingham and Nottingham, and a few synchrotron days in between. Read on for the experiences at the first two places:
SAS2012 turned out to be quite amazing, and I had a blast! After the conference some weeks were spent on holiday and therefore this site did not get updated. There should be new stuff coming up in a week. Cheers!
(warning: this rather lengthy piece may contain personal opinions and has little to do with small-angle scattering. There is a nice bit about graphics, though.) In the wake of the global public panic following the reporting around the nuclear reactor struggles (as opposed to the expected >15 kilopeople deaths in Myagi prefecture due to […]
A demonstration of the live Fourier Transform showing scattering patterns can be seen here:
During some recent presentations, I have used a small matlab program giving me a live Fourier transform of the laptop camera input. It can be used in combination with some printed “structures” to show what we would see on a SAXS or WAXS detector. The idea is not mine, I heard that it was used […]
…well, his famous SAXS analysis method. This documentGuinier_short, copyright Brian Pauw gives a short description and review of the applicability of the Guinier method to polydisperse systems. It also shows, through analysis of simulated data, what q-range should be measured for the Guinier method to be valid. In short, the rule of qmax=1.3/Rg still holds, […]
So, I could not do what I promised last time, the Monte-Carlo fitting works on perfect simulated scattering patterns but is as of yet unable to deal with the addition of a flat background. So I will have to take a raincheck. In the mean time, I have made two videos (part 1 and part […]
We teach. Every one of us. If we have a classroom of students, it is obvious, but also when we talk to colleagues, we sometimes try to teach them something (even if it is only our point of view). I spoke last time about the teaching horrors that modern textbooks have. Well, this video by […]
