Ed Sale and Jacob Williams Join the Group

Today we are pleased to welcome the newest additions to our group, MSci students Jacob and Ed. Jacob and Ed will be researching the structural and magnetic complexities of an intriguing spinel, ZnV2O4 alongside Jen. We wish them all the best in their masters projects, and hope they have a great final year, despite theContinue reading “Ed Sale and Jacob Williams Join the Group”

Lucy’s Paper is Featured in the ISIS Annual Review 2020

Lucy’s work on the triangular-honeycomb antiferromagnet TbInO3 was selected to be part of the ISIS Annual Review 2020! This work, which Lucy began as a post-doc in Prof. Bruce Gaulin’s group at McMaster University, involved a combination of analysis techniques; neutron diffraction on HRPD (ISIS), ╬╝SR on MuSR and EMU (ISIS), and inelastic measurements onContinue reading “Lucy’s Paper is Featured in the ISIS Annual Review 2020”

Kate and Aly’s Papers are Published!

Today was a very exciting first for our group – two papers being published on the same day! Kate’s paper has been published in npj Quantum Materials on one of our groups favourite materials, Barlowite! Kate has explored how the dynamics of the magnetic ground state evolve across the Zn-barlowite series by combining muon spinContinue reading “Kate and Aly’s Papers are Published!”

Dr Sam Ivko and Tristan Dolling Join the Group

This week we are very excited to welcome our first ever post-doc, Dr Sam Ivko, and new PhD student, Tristan Dolling to the group! Sam joins us from the University of Sheffield where he has recently completed his PhD, and Tristan joins us from the University of Brighton where he has just completed his MChem.Continue reading “Dr Sam Ivko and Tristan Dolling Join the Group”

Jen’s First Paper is Published!

Today was an exciting day for the group as Jen’s first paper was published in Physical Review Materials on the nuclear and magnetic ordering of the honeycomb layered spin glass Mn0.5Fe0.5PS3. This work combines a series of neutron scattering and magnetisation measurements, some of which were collected in Jen’s very first two weeks as aContinue reading “Jen’s First Paper is Published!”
