We spent a whole day at BAM (Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung und -prüfung) in Berlin and also gave a lecture on advanced reconstruction methods in which the focus was Statistical Inversion. The colloquium was held in the Ludwig-Erhard Hall in BAM’s headquarters. BAM’s history stretches back to 1871. The selection of Computer Tomography (CT) devices on display was fascinating: a total of 26 units with the largest able to make measurements through more than a metre of steel and the smallest used to study insects.
Snowflakes are en vogue this year. This is the fifth presentation about the microphysics of snow in a row and I’m beginning to lose enthusiasm. Outside it’s 35 degrees Celsius.
