Beijing March 2002
I had a chance to visit Beijing for a week in mid-March of
2002, to perform an "Expert Mission" for the International Atomic
Energy Agency, which is based in Vienna. The IAEA supports a great deal of
research into atomic energy and its various uses in developing countries. Some
of these contracts include visits by experts in areas related to the research.
In my case, it was on sampling aerosols and analyzing them by nuclear
techniques. I visited Prof. Tian Weizhi and his research group at the China
Institute of Atomic Energy in Fangshan, a small town some 50 km SW of Beijing. I
arrived on Saturday 9 March and left the next Saturday. In between, I spent
three days at CIAE, one day at the Institute of High Energy Physics in Beijing,
and one day at the Beijing Municipal Environmental Monitoring Center.
I am not posting any photos from CIAE because they have introduced a very strict policy against photography since the tragic events of September 11th. I am posting three other series, however, a long set from the nearby Shihua Cave, where they took me to visit on Wednesday the 13th, a short series from my lecture at IHEP the next day, and a few from my visit to the monitoring center on Friday. Enjoy!
