The Pulsar - A Scientific Portfolio

Hi everyone! And welcome to my website. My name is Luc and I will be your guest here.

This website is dedicated to ideas and experiments. More precisely, I like to understand how ideas emerge and evolve as much as I like to experiment with things and get my hands dirty! You won't read only about science here but more on holistic approach to knowledge through brief articles and opinions I would like to share with you.

You will find here posts about natural siences such as Physics, Chemistry and Biology but also about applied sciences such as Optics, Electronics, Programming and other various engineering topics as well as pure miscaneleous topics such as martial arts or investigations in the Japanese culture and travel guides.

To navigate on the website, simply use the left and right arrows near the window borders which overlays on the header image. By default, when arriving at this website, I will show you the most recent article first. By clicking on the right arrow, you will be looking at older posts.

Feel free to use the [»] Archives Page to have an exhaustive list of all my posts. Oh, by the way, whenever you see a [»] symbol it is a link directed towards an internal resource of this blog and when you see a [∞] it is pointing to someone else website. External resources will always be opened in separate windows, so you will never loose track of the article you were reading.
