Samuel Langley's bolometer in the late 1800s could detect the heat from a cow from as far away as one-quarter mile.
The new scintillating bolometer has performed excellently, proving its viability as a detector in experiments to look for dark matter, and also as a gamma spectrometer (a device that measures this type of radiation) to monitor background radiation in these experiments", said Abancens.
Then they could relate the steps by means of different tenses (I "used" a bolometer, which my assistant "had prepared"), by means of conjunctions and adverbs conveying temporal meanings ("After" we prepared the mixture, we "then" opened the slit), and by means of the order of clauses in a sentence (We prepared the light source, which we allowed to fall on the slit).
