    I haven't found a thread with this topic so I thought I'd start one.

    i'll start by posting these photos. Hopefully they are scientific enough. :biggrin:

    Come on, I know I'm not the only person with scientific photos lying around. I know there are other scientists around here.*looks under some rocks (but only finds some earthworms)* :surprised

    Post post post! :biggrin:

    The so called http://www.imep-cnrs.com/docu/charcoal.pdf [Broken] as found in a hole, we dug in the Maatheide, close to Lommel in Belgium at only ~1 meter depth.

    Okay, this is one of the SEM photos of Al doped zinc oxide nanopowder... I'm not including it in my thesis, as you can tell the magnification is not enough. :biggrin:

    P.S. ~christina~, spray some acid on them! :devil:

    Nice picture. I don't think we have a SEM in our school. Interesting to see.
    Them? You mean the penguin of course. :biggrin:

    Very nice, Andre. Were you digging the hole to intentionally look for the charcoal soil layer?

    None are of the spermatazoa test. I'm not sure if it's legal to post! :surprised:

    Neither do we, haven't you noticed the French note! :biggrin:
    I've send the samples to one of the schools there, I mean France, my prof recomend it.

    :biggrin:

    Yes ~c~ it was the purpose of that hole and we knew we were going to find it

    What's the thesis on? TCOs? Photovoltaics?

    Neither, it's a bit odd from what you've expected. I study the effect of changing the Sol Gel [which is a chemical synthesis route] growth parameters on the structural and optical properties of ZnO nanomaterials...

    Do I have to go public! :biggrin:

    When I saw this thread, I thought I must post one of my daughter's elementary school "properties of light" project photo, but Andy beat me to it!

    I got bored with the typical pin hole and double slit thingy, so I made a smiley face..... LOL

    256031310.jpg

    :smile: from a smiley about half that size. But it made an interesting picture.

    Very nice Ms Music. I went to a Fourier transform applet site and drew in a smiley, and took a screen shot...look how close mine is to yours!

    If you want to play with the applet, it's here -

    I'm guessing a GFP-transfected c. elegans. What's the construct?

    Yes, these are transfected and integrated (by gamma radiation) constructs. Simplified, the constructs are the following:

    1) myo-3-promotor::GFP (GFP expressed in the body wall muscle cells)

    2) generic-promotor::mCherry::H2B (Cherry marking histones in all cells); hypodermal-promotor::GFP::TBA-1 (alpha tubulin marked in hypodermal cells); myo-2-promoter::GFP (GFP expressed in the pharynx, an easy to visualize marker for transgenic animals).

    Oh my....... Thank you Lisab, that is VERY entertaining! I just may wind up wasting my entire Friday afternoon with that applet. Much MUCH easier than making teeny pinholes and razor blade slits. And now drizzle can make his/her own big grins. It DOES appear to have the same results as all my photos with the different pinholes or slits. The biggrin IS interesting, but a kitty face is even cooler. Must not lose my job must not lose my job must not lose my job.......

    Very nice- do you/your lab make the constructs? I'm wondering specifically about the GFP::TBA-1....

    Wow Lisa :!!) VERY entertaining indeed, thanks. I thought of doing a dotted circle, amazing!

    Of course, my BIG grin :biggrin:
