Allen and Clare enjoining reactivation of `beers with peers`.
Tina getting "wrapped up" with some difficulties during the new lab cleanup: Sujit Datta
Cooking and Science final projects: "Misuse" of a rheometer to test the tenderness of a steak by imitating biting into it: Stefan Munster.
Monodispersed double emulsions with two different inner drops fabricated using a dual bore glass capillary device: Laura Adams
Confocal slice of colloids crystallizing in index and density matched high dielectric solvents exhibiting hard sphere behavior: Tom Kodger
This image is an optical micrograph of a colloidal crystal composed of monodisperse 3 micrometer-diameter latex particles assembled by solvent evaporation on a glass slide. The "flower" is an optical illusion, probably due to the presence of a vacancy in the crystal: Sujit Datta
