      I think I prefer experiments! But writing up is just as important, and I suppose it can be quite nice when you get a nice relaxing day in front of our computer to do that 🙂

      Both of these are just as important as each other when researching a new topic. But, I think I enjoy the experiment part more as you get to see what physical changes occurs when you are doing it. However, it can get a little stressful if your experiment doesn’t go the way you would like it to!

      Experiments. Writing up is a real drag. I just want to do the next experiment.

      Unfortunately, the report, explaining what you did, how you did it, what you found and why it is important is always what my bosses want.
