I’m exhausted. The last two weeks have been rather hectic, to say the least. There were several evenings when I didn’t get home until after 11pm… We’ve worked very hard on the classical marbles: we’ve examined the statues like we’ve never done before at the museum and used some weird equipment, too—it was great fun!
I’m too tired to go into details right now, so I thought I would share photos today and describe the various studies in later posts when I’m actually awake and coherent.
Is this thing set to stun? Yours truly with the XRF ‘gun.’
This is not a stolen Star Trek phaser, but a handheld XRF analyser. (It’s not set to stun.)
A flash, its battery pack and filters for ultraviolet fluorescence (on unit) and visible-induced fluorescence (blue filter on table) imaging. (Safety goggles are needed for UVF.)
The Iridium 192 housing unit used in gamma radiography. (The other device is a radiation metre.)
Yours truly holding a red LED spotlight during an infrared reflectography session.
Is this the sucker-mouth of a Mynock? Nope, it’s the LED ring light at the end of the microscope.
