A novel technique to prepare pressurized glass insert samples for MAS rotors is described. In this technique, a small drop of epoxy is added to the tip of a piston and the gas is squeezed into the insert by pressing the piston. The amount of gas, i.e., pressure, in the sample can be controlls doing it better, it's all over.
I have a post up on the Killer Year Blog on the subject. It deals with writing, but the message applies to any kind of hula hoop you're trying to keep in the air.
