It is quite possible to view the pulse stream of a femtosecond output on an oscilloscope screen, especially to measure the repetition rate of the laser. It is to be noted that, we cannot see the pulse shape of the laser beam as the response time (rise and fall time) of the photodiode (PD) is quite higher than the pulse width of the femtosecond laser.
Things to be noted:
Reading time: 2 min 34 sec You know how a car moves. It takes a lot of force for an engine to start and accelerate a car. It consumes a lot of fuel during the process of acceleration. After attaining the desired momentum, it only requires very less power from the side of the engine. But then the air resistance and ground friction come into … Continue reading Your mind and a car: An analogy
Reading time: 4 min 35 sec A few days back, I was in a friendly debate with one of my best friends. As usual, it was about the existence of God. He made this statement, ‘”Our eyes have a limitation in seeing objects. It can’t see smaller things beyond an extent. Our ears are also limited so that we can only hear in the frequency … Continue reading How religion bends our thinking ability?
Reading time: 2 min 57 sec I recently watched a youtube video where Dr Zakeer Naik says to a bright medical student that a ‘theory’ in science will only become ‘law’ after testing and verifying its correctness using scientific methods. I got shocked listening to this nonsense. Here is a man with the title ‘Dr’ (physician, I guess) who is supposed to educate himself at least with … Continue reading Time to be smart: ‘Fact’, ‘Law’, ‘Hypothesis’ and ‘Theory’ in Science.
Reading time: 3 min 37 sec A few days back, we were planning to go for a movie, and suddenly one of my friends raised her concern, “I am not coming. The road would be heavily busy, I hate it. I can’t handle it.” I exclaimed, “But you have come many times before.” It was her reply that made me write this post. She replied, … Continue reading Overthinking and worries: Causes and solutions
Reading time: 1 min 24 sec Once my friend, who is a believer of a set of religious rules, said “I don’t believe in science because it says something now and it says something else later. It’s so uncertain.” I replied “Hold on a second. So you believe in statements which never change? Good… And do you even bother to think … Continue reading On the uncertainty of explanations: Religion vs Science
Reading time: 4 min 22 sec. There was always a conflict alive within my thoughts about the concept of productivity and creativity. By default, I never liked the word productivity, since it is a typical multinational cooperate word which is generally used by big bosses to multiply their production efficiency and profit acquirement. So I hated to be productive! Whenever someone says me to be … Continue reading Productivity vs Creativity: And how do they merge?
Reading time: 12 sec What are good actions? What are bad actions? Simple. Good actions are those which you do as a result of any selfless thoughts. Bad actions are those that come from your ego. In fact, the action itself is neutral, neither good nor bad. It is our perspective that makes an action good or bad. Continue reading Actions: Good and Bad
Modelling of time-dependent heat transfer in a bar using PDE (diffusion equation) in Comsol This is my very first video tutorial. It describes the modelling of heat transfer using partial differential equations in Comsol 5.0. Continue reading Comsol heat transfer tutorial
CBSPLOT: A Matlab GUI Standalone Application for Windows to Visualize and Analyze Coherent Back Scattering (CBS) data. This application was developed accidentally. It all just happened because of a request from one of my senior research students. He needed to fit a data curve for his Coherent Backscattering experiment. I wrote a few line code in Matlab which essentially worked well for him, but then … Continue reading cbsPlot: A Matlab standalone application.
