Thinking too much these days, worrying about the future, about money, about feeling safe. Missing my best people and longing for holidays and escaping the city. Still a few more weeks before taking some time off for the summer and still not sure where to go or what to (not) do... what are your plans?
KBr (potassium bromide) pellets for infrared spectroscopy. They are all samples of birch bark (except one, which I'm not sure what is yet), the pellet on top is recent decayed bark from forest grounds, the rest are all archaeological samples around 5200 years old. The samples are ground up in a KBr powder and pressed into these little moon-like pellets. When analysed, infrared light interacts with molecules and reveals chemical bonds in the sample #konservatorliv
