DESCOM: Indonesian scientist to extend microscope lifetime

Video ini saya rekam sebagai Facebook Live Video hari Kamis lalu 18 Januari 2017 pada Acara Pameran Hasil Riset ITB 2017 yang diselenggarakan oleh LPPM ITB.

Dr. Andri Subandrio, seorang ahli mineralogi dari Fakultas Ilmu dan Teknologi Kebumian dalam 10 tahun ini telah mendedikasikan waktunya untuk bereksperimen dengan kamera dan lensa. Beliau ini telah membuat sebuah konektor yang menghubungkan mikroskop refraksi analog (non-digital) dengan kamera digital. Alat ini dapat dipasang dan dimodifikasi untuk berbagai jenis mikroskop. Alat ini telah teruji untuk menampilkan citra cantik sayatan tipis batuan dari mikroskop berusia lebih dari seabad.

Piranti lunak ini diberi nama DESCOM (Digital Enhanced System Camera for Old Microscope). Simak berita ini di laman ITB.

Bagi pembaca yang belum paham mengenai sayatan tipis, mineragrafi, dan mikroskop refraksi dapat membaca artikel menarik Pengamatan Mineral Transparan dengan Mikroskop Refraksi dari seorang blogger yang doktor Andy Yahya.

Preprints, Arxiv and INARxiv (a view from Prof. Bryan Gaensler)

For some of you who are still skeptical or still having doubts about preprint and how it supports science, you might want to watch this video.

I found it while researching on research data management. It was posted under University of Sydney Library channel.

Some strong sentences about preprints were mentioned by this speaker, Prof. Bryan Gaensler, an astronomer now with University of Toronto.

Here are some of his strong points (some of which perhaps are applicable limited to the science of astronomy, physics and math):

  • Preprints support citation (in some field). Nobody bother to read journals anymore if they can read it on Arxiv three months earlier,
  • One step to promote your science is by putting your paper on Arxiv,
  • Posting preprints can lead to collaboration. So it’s not a paper before it went to Arxiv previously.

Here are some links on Prof. Bryan Gaensler:

You know what I like about persons like this one I’m presenting?

I like how he/she spends a lot of time to setup an outreach mechanism for his/her research. They look at impact way further than just a number listed as Impact Factor and citations.

But yeah, you don’t always agree with me. You could always go back to your Scopus indexing and IF hunts as you earn your way as famous academia.

And yes we run INARxiv the preprint server of Indonesia and read related articles on preprint and post print here Open Science Indonesia.
