Flashes in the ashes: How volcanic lightning is helping to demystify the Earth’s plasmasphere

IOP Publishing 2 Jul 2015

At the height of the First World War, in the trenches, German physicist Heinrich Barkhausen was eavesdropping on Allied telephone conversations. Every now and again, the Allied communications were drowned out by some strange sounds. The soldiers dubbed them “whistlers” because they sounded similar to shells flying overhead.

RGAs see the light

Hiden Analytical Limited 15 Jun 2015

The efficiency of synchrotron light sources is heavily dependent on the vacuum quality within the beam lines. Small mass spectrometers (RGAs) are routinely utilized to provide real-time vacuum monitoring for confirmation of contaminant status, and the associated radiation level is a potential issue.
