    Lab: Monochromator
    • New lab equipment


      Price - around $1200

      Usage - used for spectrum response measurements together with spectrometer

      Primary usage - camera sensors measurements

      Needs some mods to make measurements faster, like adding gears and motor for adjustments and SMA connector.

    Capitalism: Lesson to Samsung
    • If you are Samsung and do not understand your place:

      • Offer not so sweet terms on new NAND flash ram to one good company
      • Same bad terms and refusal to supply necessary amount of AMLED screens to one good company
      • Disagreements on 10nm and 14nm LSI pricing with one good company
      • And worse of all - idea to supply and promote Note 7 without asking permission of good company first

      lesson progress

      • S.Korea president who let such behavior happen removed from office, soon to be in jail
      • Samsung actual head and vice president in jail
      • Note 7 media scandal
      • Samsung lost some core people in mobile division
      • Samsung S8 price will be set specially very high to reduce sales
      • AMOLED and NAND supply approach changed
      • 10nm LSI pricing suddenly will be more affordable

      Of course it is all just fun theory :-)

    Good quote: On Ruling Ideas
    • The ideas of the ruling class are in every epoch the ruling ideas, i.e. the class which is the ruling material force of society, is at the same time its ruling intellectual force. The class which has the means of material production at its disposal, has control at the same time over the means of mental production, so that thereby, generally speaking, the ideas of those who lack the means of mental production are subject to it. The ruling ideas are nothing more than the ideal expression of the dominant material relationships, the dominant material relationships grasped as ideas; hence of the relationships which make the one class the ruling one, therefore, the ideas of its dominance. The individuals composing the ruling class possess among other things consciousness, and therefore think. Insofar, therefore, as they rule as a class and determine the extent and compass of an epoch, it is self-evident that they do this in its whole range, hence among other things rule also as thinkers, as producers of ideas, and regulate the production and distribution of the ideas of their age: thus their ideas are the ruling ideas.

    Revolutional batteries, again
    • A team of engineers led by 94-year-old John Goodenough, professor in the Cockrell School of Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin and co-inventor of the lithium-ion battery, has developed the first all-solid-state battery cells that could lead to safer, faster-charging, longer-lasting rechargeable batteries for handheld mobile devices, electric cars and stationary energy storage.

      Goodenough’s latest breakthrough, completed with Cockrell School senior research fellow Maria Helena Braga, is a low-cost all-solid-state battery that is noncombustible and has a long cycle life (battery life) with a high volumetric energy density and fast rates of charge and discharge. The engineers describe their new technology in a recent paper published in the journal Energy & Environmental Science.!divAbstract

    UK: NHS healthcare privatization
    • The 2005 policy book, called Direct Democracy: An Agenda For A New Model Party, was a collection of writings authored by a group of Tory MPs.

      Amongst other ideas, the book contained a blueprint for replacing the NHS with an insurance market system – and called for the private sector to be brought in.

      Now this ideas are put in reality. Capitalists publish lots and lots of articles where they point of shortcomings of existing system.

      Department of Health (DH) figures show that the amount of its funding that has gone to “independent sector providers” more than doubled from £4.1bn in 2009-10, Labour’s last year in power, to £8.7bn in 2015-16.

      Slow-release privatisation has also seen the percentage of the DH budget finding its way into private hands rising from 4% in 2009-10 to 8% in the last financial year
