My labmates and I, obviously with too much time on our hands, were
wondering why we put our 32P-labelled autorads in the freezer at -80C.
Our advisor hypothesized that the low temp. promotes a more "focused"
autorad, but without a good explanation for that. The decay equation
has no mention of temperature, so we're stumped. Any ideas?
