First Group Trip to ILL

This week Kate and Jen performed the groups first experiment on D2B at the Institut Laue-Langevin in Grenoble, France. It was a great (but very hot) experience where we collected some excellent data on barlowite for Kate’s work. We are grateful to our instrument scientist, Dr Clemens Ritter for all his help and explaining how to derive the magnetic structure from diffraction data. Of course, there was some time to explore Grenoble, and even a trip on the “Bubbles” cable cars to the top of the Bastille, which gave some beautiful panoramic views across Grenoble.
