On Saturday, Larry took a couple of hours to begin building some tracking software with me that I could use to measure the magnetic force on my emulsions. While I could do it by hand, the truth is that it takes forever, and as I showed yesterday, it is tedious and prone to inaccuracies, so Larry started helping me create something that is more usable. Unfortunately, I don't really know LabVIEW yet, and it is something that I would like to learn how to use, so I am spending the day going through some tutorials that came with the software, and hopefully, I will be able to build up my own software that does everything I need.
I went through a couple of different VI's. The first two were just displaying and altering different signals, mostly sine and sawtooth waves. And I worked on a third that mixed two different signals and then allowed you to analyze them. LabVIEW is a little different from other programs that I've used, mostly MATLAB and Maple, but it is interesting and appears like it will lead somewhere interesting.
