Looking forward to see you in St. Petersburg,
Я случайно новенькие станочки для резки и шлифовки/полировки.
Станочки тех дремучих времен когда Malvern Instruments делали что-то пробоподготовочное/оптикоматериальческое, а именно, думается, 86/87 годы, с тех пор их никогда не использовали (может однажды или пару раз).

2017 Oliver E. Buckley Condensed Matter Physics Prize Recipient
"For theories of topological order and its consequences in a broad range of physical systems."
Alexei Kitaev, Ph.D., graduated from the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (Russia) in 1986 having worked with quasicrystals. He did his doctoral studies at the Landau Institute for Theoretical Physics (Chernogolovka, Russia) under the supervision of Valery Pokrovsky, Ph.D., receiving his Ph.D. in 1989. Dr. Kitaev is currently the Ronald and Maxine Linde Professor of Theoretical Physics and Mathematics at the California Institute of Technology (Pasadena). Dr. Kitaev is the recipient of the 2008 MacArthur “Genius” Award, the 2012 Fundamental Physics Prize, and the 2015 Dirac Medal. Dr. Kitaev’s most cited work was the idea of topological quantum computation, namely, that quantum information can be protected from errors by encoding it in a many-body system with nontrivial topological properties. The original scheme was based on anyons, but later Dr. Kitaev proposed the use of Majorana modes. He devised and studied a few exactly solvable quantum models, including the Majorana chain and a system of spins on the honeycomb lattice. He also proposed the mathematical classification of topological insulators and superconductors using Bott periodicity. Dr. Kitaev is currently working on another model of interacting fermions, which exhibits emergent behavior similar to quantum gravity.

» По результатам всего трех экспериментов LIGO ученые определили, что скорость гравитационных волн лежит в интервале от 0,55 до 1,42 скоростей света. Статья опубликована в Physical Review Letters.
» On October 16, 2017, the the LIGO Scientific Collaboration, Virgo Collaboration, and its partners announced the first observation of gravitational-waves from a pair of inspiraling neutron stars. Electromagnetic emission from the resulting collision was also observed in multiple wavelength bands. This occured on August 17, 2017 and represents the first time a cosmic event was observed with both gravitational waves and light.
» On Aug. 17, 2017, the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory (LIGO) and Virgo detected, for the first time, gravitational waves from the collision of two neutron stars. The event was not only “heard” in gravitational waves but also seen in light by dozens of telescopes on the ground and in space. Learn more about what this rare astronomy event taught us in a new video from LIGO and Virgo. (Credit: LIGO-Virgo)

Dear co-workers and colleagues,
Sometime ago I was invited to write a review about "manipulation of magnetism by ultrafast control of exchange interactions", which is published by now:
Many thanks for all stimulating interactions and discussions concerning this topic.
