I took some pictures of plasma yesterday, tried to anyways. The viewing port is only about 1" round so it's pretty tough to capture decent photos..

There's no light source, this is inside a completely dark vacuum chamber running at about 2mTorr (that's close to same vacuum pressure as outer space..) with a pure Argon environment..

Each material generates it's own colour of plasma, these ones are ZnO and ITO..


ZnO:


ITO:

The pictures turned out really good, impressive to see. What is the application?

I was pretty impressed with how well the pictures tuned out, I'm gonna set up some better lighting to see if I can get rid of the reflections..

I'm not sure if you mean the process itself or the end use so I'll cover both..

The process itself is called plasma vapour deposition. It's creating plasma by using electromagnetic forces pushed through a material which breaks apart the structure of it into ions and electrons which are carried through the plasma (I guess technically they are the plasma?) and deposited onto a surface. Some materials (the ZnO for example) are non-conductive so I use and RF generator to create the emf or on conductive materials DC power (typically around 400-600volts at .3-.5 amps) is used.

This process and combination of materials (ZnO & ITO) is for a team that's researching (and trying to improve) the efficiency of photovoltaic cells. I also do a lot of work for groups that are working on different micro manufacturing; bio-sensors, testing equipment etc..

I do most of my work in nanometers or Angstroms, units of measure that my simple little brain can barely even comprehend. A typical thickness is around 100nm (1000Angstroms)..

Not so much a cool pic, But more of a cool house. 15 years of working in Hollywood and never realized this house was down the street.

Anyone recognize where it's from before I tell where and what it is.

It looks familiar, is that the “Eight is Enough” house?!

Never mind, but it looks like 4wd4wd is on the right path though!

Yep. Correct.
Its the Cunningham's house from Happy Days. This was used on all the exterior shots. Glad to see they really haven't changed it.

This showed up at my local Coffee and Cars.
Adventure Trucks. Price starts at $260,000
The 40" Good Year tires look small on the beast.



.

You kind of get an idea of the height of it with the people standing by it.

.

A winch so you can lower the spare wheel.

5.696 second pass at 253.78 mph for John Zappia, from the Western Nationals on the weekend.
His best is 5.585.


Sorry for the shaky footage, I took it on my phone.
