The SCM and I

Originally uploaded by oui_buenafe

SCM = Super-conducting magnet.

The heart of the NMR spectrometer, in other words. The spectrometer box may be the brains, with the programmed pulse sequences, pulsed RF radiation and sophisticated electronics, BUT without the SCM, we can’t analyze anything at all–it’s nuclear magnetism that is the heart of all the theories behind NMR, after all.

Just a belated upload from the department camera, taken last month (on my birthday).

[As of now, RL eats my life, with the upcoming liquid helium refill and the continuation of the VCO project. ^^; Oh, and preparing to apply for grad school for next year.]

Hatless casual-lolita, with piano bag

OK, it’s been a long time since I’ve updated. XD Work ate my life and free time…as well as summer-sicknesses like colds AND the flu.

So, to celebrate my silver year here on Earth, I finally made a discreet debut as a lolita (er, a popular Japanese street-fashion, not to be confused with the Nabokov novel….go look it up in Wikipedia)–a casual-lolita, to be exact. ^_^; I haven’t uploaded my photo with the JEOL NMR (haha, science-loli!).
