Spectroscopy (greek „Ghost seeing“) is the interaction of light and matter. The literal translation is quite appropiate, because with the use of these techniques, not the real molecules/atoms can be seen, but only their images and „shadows“ they produce. The result is a chart, where energy, time, frequency,…. are related, this we call a spectrum. weiterlesen...

BOKU Versuchsgarten Jedlersdorf
We spent a wonderful afternoon at BOKU Versuchsgarten Jedlersdorf, where we sample regularly our walnuts. This afternoon we had a tour around to see and sample many other fascinating and delicious plants. Many thanks to Karl Refenner for enabling our nut (and other fruit:)) sampling throughout the whole season and the nice visit including the weiterlesen…
