I sent an email to Stephen last night requesting some (supervised) time on the Ft-IR. He responded right away and I have an appointment tomorrow around 2 to run the first of our scans.

For this run I’m going to repeat Anthony’s scans from December. I’m hoping that Stephen and I can get a few more sessions in next week so that I can get unsupervised use of the Ft-IR.

Anthony and I met this morning. There are a few things we are hoping to learn more about:

  • the absorption rate of D2O in DDW
  • what do varying amounts of D2O look like

I’ve started a table to track my work on these and any other questions that may pop up.
