Introducing Thibault Wenger--Lehnert

28 Août 2010 , Rédigé par JW Publié dans #Fancy lab

I'm very glad to announce the birth of my son Thibault on August 24th 2010. He's already a charming person.



Still in the lab ? Enjoy the Nano Girls clip !

This is going to be THE summer hit ! You may share/leave a comment via the link on ACS nanotation I also found this video illustration for this fantastic pick up line: "You look like a Sigma-Aldrich girl".

Celebrating the laser 50th anniversary in Marseille

4 Juin 2010 , Rédigé par JW Publié dans #Fancy lab

From tonight, and ongoing every Friday night in June, a 10W green laser beam will be sent over Marseille historical center. This will redo Fizeau's experiment and measure the speed of light.


See the blog: un laser sur Marseile


Different animations will be distributed along the laser beam path. Posters to illustrate the concepts and applications of lasers, and demonstrations with lasers :

* mini laser show

* laser balloon burning

* schweppes fluorescence

* invisible ink seen with laser

* CD rom physics

This month in Micscape

21 Avril 2010 , Rédigé par JW Publié dans #Fancy lab

My recent Micscape article focuses on the Wild Heerbrugg M20 microscope's binocular head and its effects on imaging. In my opinion, the M20 is simply the best stand for amateur microscopy, balancing optical quality, cost, and size.

My first article in Micscape

For those of you who do academic research on (nano)photonics but don't know about the Micscape journal, then you're definitely missing one of the major publications about microscopy It's loaded with plenty of useful / interesting / futile* stuff (* choose the word that best applies to what you're looking for).

Going back to basics, my first Micscape paper is thus devoted to an early student microscope stand of the second mid of the 19th century. Thanks to its open design, this microscope is ideal for demonstrations, and also for oblique epi-darkfield illumination to reveal physical colors from diatoms.
