Rod Nave in Kell Hall, 2 of 3
Rod adjusts the microwave frequency electronics for detecting the electron spin resonance signals. The dewar flask hanging over the magnet behind him is to allow data collection as low as liquid nitrogen temperature. The crystal samples are irradiated with high doses of x-rays to do damage to the biologically related crystal materials. Sometimes the free-radicals produced are unstable, so we study them at very low temperatures first to get closer to seeing the nature of the original damage. Then we watch the changes as we take data at higher and higher temperatures. [Description from Rod Nave's personal photograph website]
