It is with great sadness I'd like to announce Dr. Hanneman passed away on December 12, 2020. His legacy will live on forever!

Hi,

If there is no scheduled chat, I will be there tonight to answer questions or just say silly things. From 9pm my time (3pm NY, noon LA).

Ok, so the first chat on magnetism is complete. It was a little grueling, because I waded through a lot of preliminaries, with a lot of mental pictures. My intrepid adventurers stuck with it, but even so... at the end there is no big payoff.

The payoff will have to wait until next time. Next Sunday we will make the connection between little circles of current and magnetic materials, and how magnetic properties become manifest in gem material.

Even then, though, I think it will require one more chat to discuss the what, how, and why of magnetic measurements on gems. Looks like another long slog. :shock:

The second magnetism chat was fun. But, the wife is spiriting me out of town this coming weekend. So we'll have to put off the continuing discussion this weekend.

I'll put up notice next week as to how that weekend is looking.

Yep, my thought exactly. But you have plenty of past-chats reading to occupy your time. :lol:

Some pretty dry reading, I'm afraid.

We covered some magnetism business today, even though Frank kept trying to lead me astray with spectroscopy. :lol:

I think we'll be done with the magnetism tomorrow. So probably we'll be chatting about any old thing as well... whatever is on someone's mind.

Everyone beware... Overnight tonight, we in the US "spring forward", move up one hour. So... if your particular country does not do that tonight, you will need to check in an hour earlier than usual.

OK, I have to take this Sunday off. Hopefully we'll be able to resume next Sunday, March 22, when we'll talk about the usambara effect. Hopefully by then I'll have some spectra of Frank's tourmaline exhibiting this effect!

Oops, sorry guys, I can't do the chat this Sunday, March 22. The hard-drive on my computer at home crashed, so I can't connect to the internets from home. It looks like I'll be spending the weekend sorting that out.
