As an optional piece of fun, you might want to watch this conference talk of C. McCammon. It combines topics from two modules of this course: the present one (synchrotron) and the module on Mössbauer spectroscopy. The talk shows how scientists use a synchrotron to do conventional Mossbauer spectroscopy, and apply it to solve questions in Earth science. There are no tasks associated with this video, and it’s an optional one anyway. But it’s presented in such an absorbing en enthusiasmizing way, that you will not regret spending half an hour to watch and understand it.
