Excursion to California: Beam-time at the Advanced Light Source in Berkeley.

XM² PGR David Newman (1st year, supervised by Prof Rob Hicken and Dr Mustafa Aziz ) recently went to the Advanced Light Source in Berkeley, California where he was using X-ray magnetic circular dichroism (XMCD), X-ray ferromagnetic resonance (XFMR) and other magnetic spectroscopic techniques to characterise spin currents in ferromagnetic/anti-ferromagnetic/ferromagnetic trilayer...

Zahid Hussain’s research visit at the TU Munich: MOF-Derived Bimetal Oxide/Carbon (M-MO/C) Nanocomposites for Solar Light Driven Applications

Zahid Hussain started his PhD in the EPSRC CDT in Metamaterials in 2016 and was invited to join the Catalysis Research Center at the Technical University, Munich, from January to December 2018. This fantastic opportunity aims to derive bi-metal oxide nanocomposites from metal organic frameworks (MOFs) for high efficient solar...

Visit at Dyson

On 1 November 2017 a delegation of our PGRs went to visit Dyson’s headquarters in Malmesbury. The event was a pilot for Dyson – and a full success. Company representatives from both research and HR provided our PGRs with very interesting insights in Dyson’s research and working environment, and useful...
