I shall call him: Mini-Me

Success of the (Yester)Day: Training the summer undergrad student in clean-room usage. Now we can both revel in the joys of bunny-suits.

After thinking about yesterday’s Success of the Day post, I’ve decided it’d be good to make it a regular (though probably not daily) thing. It’s too easy to get caught up in why a particular experiment isn’t working. Daily successes are pretty good optimism boosts, even if it’s just a successful pot of tea.

It’s a pretty terrible spectrum…I’m surprised I can see anything above the noisiness of it. BUT, it’s the the first spectrum from our new spectrometer, so huzzah! Optimization will clearly be needed.
