Pic of the week

Research into thin films is wide and extremely interesting. Ranging from household mirrors to flexible semiconductors.

This pic is from a drop or two of a water insoluble substance (probably oil) on a wet road.

This picture of a spooky looking dish was taken early in the morning. The sun highlighted contraption in the foreground is the old instrument room, but is often misidentified as a replica Apollo 11 capsule. The photo was taken in Parkes while the Kickstart team were on the road in Term 3 2013.

Pic of the week and winner of the Kickstart on the Road photo competition taken by Daniel Poppleton while in the Road in Wagga Wagga July 2013

This photo captures a great experiment with some stylish interactions from students. The photo is the winner of the Kickstart on the road Photo Competition for 2013. The theme was interactions and Daniel Poppleton completely nailed the brief on this one. Thank Dan for the great shot

This photo of the Parkes Radio dish was taken in such a way that a slight distortion of the dish was seen. The effect provides an interesting photo and a unique view of the famous radio dish.

On Friday morning (May 10), there was a partial solar eclipse eclipse beginning at 7.50 am and ending at 10.14 am. Mid-eclipse was at 8.57 am when 39% of the Sun's diameter was covered. At that time the Sun was 24 degrees above the eastern horizon.

Here is a picture of the Satellite get together held with Jupiter, 4 of her moons and our own. This rendezvous took place on Feb 19, and if you were in Melbourne or Hobart (or far enough south of Sydney) you would have seen an occulation of Jupiter by the Earth's Moon.

The photo was taken by Sebastian Juraszek with his Cannon 550D and a 200mm lens. at f/5.6, 1/4s, ISO 1600.

"Quite a sight with the clouds and the satellites." I agree Sebastian!

This weeks Pic of the week was taken in the year 1960! This was too good not to share. A lot has changed since then clearly, but surprisingly, there are also a few similarities!

I think it's great to see how packed the lab is! I'd love to know who some of these people are!

Superconductors and the Meissner effect. A truly wonderful and bizarre demonstartion that invokes all sorts of things like Quantum mechanics vs Classical Mechanics. This photo was taken at the University of Sydney Open day in 2012 by a young student named Jay Keyes. Thanks to jay for the photo and the permission.

I'll be taking regular photos to upload here in order to show off some of the equipment, people, experiments, projevts and pretty things that happen around here. I hope you enjoy the photo journal.
