      I love doing experiments in the lab, and lasers are a really unusual tool. By bouncing a laser beam (which is invisible in my case) off mirrors and doing a few experimental tricks, you can make really, really precise distance measurements. It’s just quite mind blowing!

      I guess it’s the combination of designing electronics to manipulate light and then measure things using it – it is the ultimate mechano set.
