      Not all the time, but when I am actually doing experiments it can be a pretty hard work – we get to use the machines that i work on not very often, and they are running for 24 hours a day. So if I have to change samples every two hours for two days you can see that would be a little knackering. Two things have helped me recently though. There are now lots of robot sample changers that can move your samples in and out of the beam, and I also have a great student who doesn’t seem to need any sleep, so I can get him to do a lot of it…!
