looks great 😀
350 grams of Osmium, insane 😀
I just finished the assembly of the Bluetooth LE adapter and the programming of the android app to control my Ricor K535 cryo pumps. I always needed a way to avoid cables and bulky control software. Just need my smartphone to control, switch and monitor the cryogenic pump.
The App currently consists of 3 screens: Connection, Control, Settings. ... See MoreSee Less
These Bluetooth adapters can be used with all RS232 / RS485 controlled devices. Just need to write an app. Next project is more complicated and needs a microcontroller as receiver: Control 2 solenoid vacuum valves and two vacuum gauges to automatically flush and fill noble gas tubes with the correct amount of gas and pressure just by pressing a button on my mobile phone😀

Rhenium doped phosphate glass!
For the first time and after many unsuccessful attempts I was able to incorporate a small amount of Rhenium (~ 0.6 - 1 mol%) into an aluminum barium phosphate glass without immediate reduction to black Re.
On the right you see the colorless and transparent glass with fully dissolved Re in the +7 state. On the left there is the same glass where Re formed nano clusters after slow cooling under slight reducing conditions.
The picture below shows the pale yellow luminescence of the colorless glass under 257nm UV irradiation. ... See MoreSee Less
Very impressive! Is Rhenium known for fluorescence in glassy materials?
Erbium doped Silicon Zinc Bismuthate glass
Diameter about 10mm – weight 2 – 2.5 grams – Bi2O3 54 mol%
Er2O3: 1mol% ... See MoreSee Less
Very exotic: Erbium doped Barium Sodium Magnesium Bismuthate glass.
This glass consists almost entirely of Bi2O3 containing no other glass former. This is my first stable and reproducible bismuthate glass.
The very aggressive glass melt even attacks a Platinum crucible!
The 1 mol% Erbium oxide makes it suitable for infrared optics.
Its a very high density glass. The smallest bead in the picture weighs exactly 2 grams! ... See MoreSee Less
