Yesterday, after the seminar, I received a response from the governmental office telling me that they are not allowed to download files from free storage sites. It is reasonable, so I made the file separated into three and sent them by e-mail first. An officer said the report was fine, so I print it out, signed on it, and sent it by mail. A researcher came from Shimadzu. We worked on our instrument under development.
An instruction started today of the new Russian instrument I had chosen. It seems to be a good one. In the evening, I taught English to some students in the institute. After the lesson, they gave presents to Mariya; a towel and clothes. I passed them to Katya. Towels are always useful for a baby.
The student who got sick returned to the lab. We will work slowly. A researcher from Shimadzu arrived to work on the instrument of my scientific project. I cooked spaghetti for dinner. Mariya did not cry much during the night time, although Katya had to wake up, anyway.
Technicians have been working on the installation of a new instrument for four days. It has finally been settled down. It is an instrument imported from Russia. I first knew the instrument in September 2010, and it finally arrived. The machine has a very unique function, and I hope it can be useful for our researches. In the evening, there was a Jingisukan BBQ party held by students in the garden of the institute. About 15 participants. It was a pity that the ex-student of mine, who sent us the meat, was busy and was not able to show himself. Anyway, we thankfully enjoy the meat.
It is always busy after trips. At the institute, I found out that there is some modification needed in the instrument we are developing under the governmental project. So I decided to go to Shimadzu in Kyoto for two days with a student of mine. I need to finish an abstract for a presentation in November, so I will stay up late tonight to finish it.
Chiba Washington Hotel was economical, but the room was cheap, too; the noise from the rooms next to mine was heard. The breakfast was not good, either. After checking out, I took trains to Makuhari Messe. JASIS (Japan Analysis Science Instrument Show) was held there. There were so many booths inside. I walked around and saw instruments as many as possible till 3 PM. Then I took trains back to Tokyo. I visited the apartment in Nakaochiai. A tenant asked me to clear up the bicycle parking lot. The bicycle parking lot is not large enough. There was a man with me from an apartment-managing company. We talked about rearranging … Continue reading
I left home at 7:30 Am, and started preparing for the document. A Shimadzu researcher came to help us with establishing the instrument in the lab. I came back home at 10 PM. I will work tomorrow for the document and the presentation slides.
With Shimadzu guys, we have been working for installing the new instrument into the laboratory. We are using lasers, and the optical system emits fluorescence. The signals we want, therefore, are hindered. With using optical filters we were trying to get rid of the fluorescence light. We were working till 8 PM. The light was found to be from lenses, joints, and optical cables, so it is difficult to take it off. We will try another method next week.
In the morning, I joined a meeting for the preparation of the specification of a new instrument. At 11 AM, I left the institute for Tokyo. At 2 PM, I arrived at Hongo, where I attended a publication meeting of a scientific society. We discussed till 4:30 PM. Then I had dipping doodles for late lunch at “Tsukemen Masaki“. The taste was delicate but not impressive. I moved to Honancho for an extraordinary real-estate meeting to introduce a new “electronic” electric breaker to reduce the electricity cost. It was accepted to install the breaker to the apartment in Nakaochiai. The meeting ended at 7 PM. I rushed to Shinjuku Station … Continue reading
Three researchers from Shimadzu came to my lab this morning. They had sent all parts in advance, which arrived at the institute at 10 AM. Then the researchers started to build up the parts to make a new instrument we are developing. The development of this instrument is the aim of our governmental project. At noon, the three researchers, two students and I went to Manpuku Roh for lunch. In the afternoon, they kept building the instrument, and I came back to my office. A sophomore student was waiting for me. He was to present his electronic circuit in front of the teachers for the exam, but he had yet … Continue reading
