Quama, Laser TV and Liquid Helium

Published on: Sun Jun 27 2010

So I downloaded this new tool to let me blog remotely more easily. Hopefully it will be very helpful! To test it out here is a list of recent articles which have caught my eye. Laser Phosphor Display (LPD) television - it's all done with mirrors (PhysOrg.com) -- Californian company Prysm has unveiled a high definition television with a "laser phosphor display" based on their patented method of using lasers reflected off a bank of mirrors to excite pixels on the television screen in a similar way to cathode ray tubes. This is the first time I've heard of a TV using lasers. The video link in the article is very cool This is a neat video on Liquid Helium. We were studying Temperature in class, the book mentioned superfluids and this is a neat video I found on superfluids. And to see how Quama handles images, here is a recent photo of me from the webcam in my Airie. Oh Yeah, I've also figured out I can learn Chemistry through MIT Opencourseware. So I've been working through 5.111 Principles of Chemical Science As taught in: Fall 2008. There is a full video lecture series and the professor teaching it is awesome! I'm very happy to be learning from her. I would like to see if my LaTeX editor can pick up things. Lets give it a try... [math]!(a+b)^2[/math] If it works I've got to track down my lost post on how to write LaTeX again.
