Clarke group research in ScienceMatters@Berkeley

Posted by Arcane Gazebo at November 14, 2005 6:25 PM

My advisor was profiled in the latest issue of ScienceMatters@Berkeley, an online UCB publication written by Boing Boing's David Pescovitz. Most of you know about my work on the qubit project; the ScienceMatters article also covers some of the other research in the group.

UPDATE: It's pretty cool to see one of our figures on Boing Boing, even if it is from the (admittedly more photogenic) MRI project rather than the qubit research.

I like the bell pepper MRI. A guy in my lab walked by the computer room while I was looking at it, and he sent me to this link: http://www.tau.ac.il/~assafyan/nmr/image.html.

"Most of the work in our lab is related with biological samples, but.....fruits give much better images!!!"

That makes me wonder...if your group works with SQUID, and takes MRI images of bell peppers, are you planning to take an MRI of a squid?

The squid SQUID MRI has definitely been suggested. These days we are mostly imaging human prostates (not in vivo, mind) to see if we can detect tumors. This has led to lunchtime conversations about handling prostate samples that are probably pretty disturbing for anyone overhearing them out of context.
