This week, the ILL celebrated a very special birthday – 50 years since the reactor started running. To celebrate, a full program from current and past staff was shared with the whole staff on Thursday at the World Trade Centre in Grenoble. The final session was dedicated to the ILL’s science output, including a very special clip show where Jen was chosen to represent the Diffraction group and present an overview of her thesis in 3 minutes! After the presentations, the party started with lots of great food and dancing well into the night. Thanks to everyone who organised, it was a great day!
