QM with Python – swing on the quantum harmonic oscillator

Introduction (This post continues on my older post on using Python in solving simple quantum mechanics problems) You have heard of harmonic oscillator in physics classroom. It is a simple mathematical tool to describe some kind of  repetitive motion, either it is pendulum, a kid on a sway, a kid on a spring or something … Continue reading QM with Python – swing on the quantum harmonic oscillator

Programming Atmega μC with Arduino – Troubleshooting

Introduction There are many, many, and many posts online about how to use Arduino board to program everyone’s favorite Atmel AVR family of the microcontrollers – Atmega. I haven’t made many microcontroller circuits from the scratch so I never had any real programmer, as for instance AVR ISP or USBtiny. But recently, I decided to make an Atmega168 … Continue reading Programming Atmega μC with Arduino – Troubleshooting

Working in a nanotechnology lab

Introduction Last month I won a EuroDOTs scholarship to take a 2 – week training course called “Integrated magnetoresistive sensors: from material deposition to wafer level testing” at the Institute of Microsystems and Nanotechnologies (INESC-MN) in Lisbon, Portugal. Sounds quite badass, huh? Well, it is, cause the INESC truly is the best portugese research institution and … Continue reading Working in a nanotechnology lab
