This episode is an interesting discussion about the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF) in Grenoble, France. I had a chance to talk to Claus Habfast, physicist and head of communications for ESRF. ESRF is an accelerator facility the creates high-energy x-rays that are used for experiments in various areas of science, from biology to physics to materials science and chemistry. In the episode, Claus talks about how ESRF works, highlights a couple of interesting recent experiments and puts ESRF into the context of other accelerator laboratories.

    My favorite episode thus far, not to say the others weren’t quality. I’m not entirely sure what your target audience is, but as a computer scientist and consumer of SE Radio, I have a strong interest in physics which unfortunately I usually only quench through conversations and technical articles.
