Current CoLoS projects in the
Physical and Theoretical
Chemistry Laboratory at
Interactive Experiments Controlled Through the Internet.
This project, supported by funding from the
LTSN Centre at
aims to provide truly interactive access
to remote equipment through the Internet. At present, simple data
can be obtained by using a web browser to
connect to an optical rig in Oxford. On-line documentation
is not presently available, as instructions
are issued to students when they do the experiment, but a copy of
these instructions is available from Dr. Hugh Cartwright.
Communication with the rig at present is accomplished via a series of
applets. With LTSN support, we are moving control from Java applets
to HP VEE, with a substantial increase in sophistication
and versatility. The project started in August 2000 and is continuing.
You are welcome to try the present software by

We welcome enquiries from other sites who might be interested
in collaborating on projects of this nature, which involve the development of Internet
experiments in chemistry or other physical sciences. [Contact

The Principles of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance
This consists of a series of applets which allow the user
to investigate some of the fundamental ideas of NMR (Nuclear
Magnetic Resonance), including Free Induction Decay,
coupling, relaxation and more. The experiment can be started by
