Kate Presents at IOP Magnetism

Kate gave an invited (virtual) talk at the IOP Magnetism conference this month. The programme covered topics such as topological materials, 2D materials, thin films and correlated electron systems. Kate presented in the latter session and discussed her muon study on the Zn-barlowite series of QSL candidates. The conference also included a public lecture entitledContinue reading “Kate Presents at IOP Magnetism”

Aly and Lucy Present at the 2021 BCA Spring Meeting

This year, the BCA spring meeting was held virtually for the first time. The planning and organizing committees, however, did an excellent job putting together a variety of excellent talks spanning a rich range of topics. On the first day, following the YCG meeting, Aly presented his recently published work on the Ti(III) diamond andContinue reading “Aly and Lucy Present at the 2021 BCA Spring Meeting”

Jen attends the 2019 Winter Crystallography Meeting

On Monday and Tuesday this week, Jen attended the Winter Crystallography Meeting held at Milton Hill House in Oxfordshire. This meeting is a great opportunity for British crystallographers, both old and young, to get together to talk all thing structure! Jen joined fellow Liverpool researchers from the Rosseinsky group and particularly enjoyed Alice Bumstead’s talkContinue reading “Jen attends the 2019 Winter Crystallography Meeting”

Kate, Aly and Jen attend the ISIS Student Meeting 2019

The ISIS Student Meeting is an annual event which brings together students who use neutrons and muons in their PhD research, and this year was particularly exciting as it was the first ever meeting attended by the whole group. Each member presented work in a flash presentation and poster; Aly and Kate presented their workContinue reading “Kate, Aly and Jen attend the ISIS Student Meeting 2019”

Kate and Aly attend BCA 2019

In April, both Kate and Aly got to attend the BCA spring meeting in Nottingham. On the first day, which is dedicated for early career researchers, Aly gave his first external talk, where he presented a comprehensive experimental and theoretical study on the Mo4+ system BaMo(PO4)2. Aly also got the opportunity to join the YoungContinue reading “Kate and Aly attend BCA 2019”

Kate and Aly attend the Oxford Symposium on Magnetism in Metal-Organic Frameworks

This March, Kate and Aly attended the Oxford Symposium on Magnetism in Metal-Organic Frameworks, a one-day symposium in which magnetic studies on metal-organic and hybrid-coordination framework materials are presented. Aly got the opportunity to present a poster on the magnetic properties of the diamond and square lattice antiferromagnet pseudo-polymorphs of KTi(C2O4)2. Kate also presented aContinue reading “Kate and Aly attend the Oxford Symposium on Magnetism in Metal-Organic Frameworks”

Kate Attends the RSC Materials Chemistry Poster Symposium

On Friday, Kate attended the RSC Materials Chemistry Division Poster Symposium which is an opportunity for scientists early in their career to present their work to researchers in academia and industry. The day entailed flash presentations followed by posters from students’ research on a broad range of materials chemistry, from magnetocaloric frameworks to sulphur polymers.Continue reading “Kate Attends the RSC Materials Chemistry Poster Symposium”

Kate and Aly Attend the 2018 ISIS Student Meeting

Aly and Kate attended the ISIS Student Meeting this week, which was held in Milton Hill House in Oxfordshire. The meeting is a fantastic opportunity for neutron and muon users to present in a relaxed environment amongst fellow PhD students.  Kate gave her first external talk here, where she presented her muon spectroscopy and neutronContinue reading “Kate and Aly Attend the 2018 ISIS Student Meeting”

Kate and Aly Attend the ILL & ESS User Meeting

The beginning of this week marked the exciting trip to Grenoble, France, where Kate and Aly flew to attend the ILL & ESS European User Meeting. During their time there, Kate presented a poster showcasing her muon spectroscopy data on zinc doped barlowite, and Aly summed up an extensive experimental study on an antiferromagnetic anhydrousContinue reading “Kate and Aly Attend the ILL & ESS User Meeting”
