Scientific applications

This is the most suitable to write blog posts that cover research and scientific instruments. Of course we always talk of accomplishments by Maker, on a budget. Although, in some cases, touching topics of great science, and with good results.

To deepen these topics please consult also the site Physics Open Lab

    I made the basic version (laptop) of your incredible tool (Theremino Spectrometer N.D.R.) and I am going now to realize the BenchTop version. Amazing really! I never thought I'd reach similar accuracy with a webcam and a small piece of DVD!

    I started from the instrument should have quite similar to yours, published and marketed by PublicLab, that actually has good performance, but is less versatile, customizable and that, unfortunately, is also more expensive in the realization.

    Are then “landfall” a colorimeter/photometer produced by IORodeo (USA), simple but nice in conception and realization, with a decent Kit software. Of course the colorimeter is different from the point of view of construction and performance. The IORodeo Colorimeter is a little’ expensive, always thinking in terms of philosophy “Maker”, But however well developed.

    Eventually I got to the Theremino System which I consider to be the best, Thanks to the excellent software. Better both as a system board that as spectrometer. The latter is qualitatively superior to others and has an excellent price/performance ratio.

    I attach two “shots” made with Theremino Spectrometer, This is the resumption of two sources side by side, an IR LED and CFL 925 NM nominal and resuming only IR LEDS.

    The calibration was made initially on two lines of the CFL 436 and 546 NM. In the picture with the two sources you can appreciate the ability to range from UV to IR in one shot!

  2. Dear Blog readers Theremino, I'm a ham radio operator and I write on behalf of the “Radiosismici Precursors” that was set up in our Associazione Radioamatori Italiani (ARI). Handling of course electromagnetic signals monitoring precursors, so-called “radiosismici”, We would be interested to know how we could adopt the system Theremino, aim of this usage. What costs we should estimate? It would also be very interesting to launch an input to the organizers and transmission system, in order to learn about their willingness to cooperate with our group ARI at this early stage of research. A friendly greeting and thanks ! Alfredo Gallerati (IK7JGI/ARI)

  3. Sorry Livio, What is your last name? Thank you !
    Cordial greetings
