Developments at the University of Warwick (October 2010)
The new Ion Cyclotron Resonance Laboratory was officially opened by Prof. Fred McLafferty in September. The lab houses several FT-ICR mass spectrometers, including a 12 T Bruker solariX. The web pages have been updated to reflect this and to updated publication lists too.
Site updates (September 2009)
Publications (papers, posters, and talks) have been updated throughout the site and two, new links have been added to the mass spectrometry links page.
Site updates (October 2007)
A software section has been added to the mass spectrometry links page.
Site updates (July 2007)
Two posters have been presented by the group at ASMS, and a talk was given by a collaborator. The references can be found in the relevant sections of this site. The web pages have also been slightly modified for easier maintenance and minor cosmetic changes have been made.
Conferences (June 2006)
The 55th ASMS Conference on Mass Spectrometry takes place in Indianapolis (Indiana, USA) from June 3rd to 7th, 2007.
Site updates (March 2007)
A download page has been added. The first download available is a Widget for Mac OS X, which allows users to calculate FT-ICR parameters, such as the frequency of an ion of interest, maximum theoretical resolution, and acquisition time. Two different methods for calculating the resolution are available.
Site updates (January 2007)
A new page has been added to the online tools section. The new page enables users to calculate the theoretical m/z of an ion from an empirical formula and to calculate the mass accuracy (in ppm) associated with an assignment.
Site updates (August 2006)
A poster was presented at the IMSC, and the reference can be found in the relevant sections of the web site.
Site updates (August 2006)
The FT-ICR calculations page has been updated to incorporate two different methods of performing calculations, where each of the methods is better suited to different effects on resolution.
Conferences (May 2006)
The 54th ASMS Conference on Mass Spectrometry takes place in Seattle (Washington, USA) from May 28th to June 1st, 2006.
The 17th International Mass Spectrometry Conference takes place in Prague (Czech Republic) from August 27th to September 1st, 2006.
In the news (May 2006)
The BBC web site has an article about Shell investing in oil sands in Canada.
Site updates (May 2006)
A third page for calculations has been added. The new page enables calculation of the cyclotron orbit radius, and resulting kinetic energy, after excitation within the cell. In addition, changes have been made to the appearance of the web pages in geneal, buttons have been added (XHTML and CSS validation, RSS news feed, and a few others), and I have been tinkering with the code.
Site updates (March 2006)
Two new pages have been added for performing calculations online. One page enables the user to calculate the maximum theoretical resolution for an FT-ICR under specific circumstances, as well as calculating the frequency of the ion of interest and the acquisition time. The other new page is used for calculating the center-of-mass collision energy for an ion experiencing a single collision with a stationary gas particle. Finally, minor changes have been made throughout the site.
In the news
The BBC published an article on the recent interest in oil sands in Canada.
Site updates (January 2006)
The appearance of the site has been modified, a QuickTime animation has been added, publications have been updated, and four new pages have been created: a photo gallery, a glossary, a petroleum and energy links page, and an environmental links page.
Site updates (November 2005)
The appearance of the site has been altered, and visitors are now given visual feedback when their mouse moves over links.
Site updates (October 2005)
A series of changes have been made, including: updating and categorizing some of the links pages, making certain images clickable (within the research pages), a number of formatting changes, validating the XHTML code, and linking publications to online records.
Site overhauled! (September 2005)
The design of my web site has been considerably changed and effectively a new site has been launched. Some small changes may take place in the near future.
