Work Party: Wet silver deposition on optical fibers - round 2

Yesterday, Sept 08 2011, we (Francois and Tibi) had the second round of experiments for wet silver coating on glass. The goal was to control the quality of the coating by reducing the concentration of our solutions and the rate of mixing. Two experiments were performed in parallel. One was done in a large volume for batch processing, and the other one was done under the microscope in a drop, for coating individual optical fibers. For the large volume experiment we used a perfusion system (new feature) to inject the silver solution into a bath of glucose solution.  

See the document explaining the experiment

At the same time, we experimented with the LabOnline concept, broadcasting our activities live, see video recordings. See more on the LabOnline concept here.
