After almost a year of work, the Mass-Flow Calorimeter (MFC) system is finally ready. It's been a great challenge and it was far from simple to make.
In principle it is meant to precisely measure the quantity of energy given by a sample. And because we are aiming at precision here, it was necessary to leverage painstakingly multiple expertises. Moreover, the bench will be used for many configurations and for other experiments where we are shooting for great precision. There is even an extension for another experiment to be run at the same time.
There have been one key help in the design, mounting, configuring and setting-up this big bench : Jean-Paul Biberian. His most valuable support was offered throughout the critics that are absolutely necessary for a scientific work to be done properly. His casualness of sharing his scientific expertise make the ride so much rewarding, I am so thankful!
Here is a detailed presentation of this bench.
I am taking advantage of this blogpost to thank our supporters, you, who helped us and enabled us to make this system.
