Juriaan van Tilburg

student of Leo Kouwenhoven, has got this Ph. D. title today. He’s fabricated, contacted and measured more than a thousand of nanowire samples, so their total length spans almost a centimeter. Close to the end of the Ph.D. term he’s been awarded by – how he puts it – "intense happiness" of observation of single electron spin. Good work, good thesis, good person: the whole science is founded on shoulders of such people.

Though I had to object one of his propositions. He wrote that the influence of the position of plant Venus on one’s birth is identical to that of an apple at 1 cm distance. I believe that this statement has arised from a theoretical estimation based on a model where the concrete details of birth process have been oversimplified if not at all neglected. Well, it’s just a matter of experience…
