Third Thursday Telecom – 21 May 2015

In this third feature of the recorded monthly telecoms, Dr. Andrew Westphal answers dusters’ current questions (a regular feature of the Third Thursday Telecoms), including why particle impacts in the foil surrounding the aerogel is providing different results from the particle impacts in the aerogel itself (and thus why we will soon be launching a new foils search that all dusters can participate in). New insight is also provided on how our research partners are helping us prepare and practice using new analytical techniques.
