Jen Presents her ILL PhD seminar

Today, Jen gave her first ever ILL PhD seminar on Nuclear Physics! The ILL PhD seminar series runs every year and is organised by the PhD representatives. These seminars take place every Wednesday with 2 speakers per session. One year all the students present on their own research, and the other year, the students presentContinue reading “Jen Presents her ILL PhD seminar”

Aly and Lucy Publish in the Annual Reviews of Materials Research

This has been a very exciting week for the Clark group as Lucy and Aly have just published the group’s first review paper, Quantum Spin Liquids from a Materials Perspective, in the journal of Annual Reviews of Materials Research. In their paper, Lucy and Aly focus their efforts to present their work in a mannerContinue reading “Aly and Lucy Publish in the Annual Reviews of Materials Research”

Jen’s Paper is Featured in the 2020 ILL Annual Report

Jen’s first paper on the honeycomb layered spin glass, Mn0.5Fe0.5PS3 was chosen to feature in this years ILL Annual Report! The ILL Annual Report gives a selection of scientific highlights of the ILL and an overview of technical and other activity for the previous year. Our work involved two of the ILL’s instruments, the high-resolutionContinue reading “Jen’s Paper is Featured in the 2020 ILL Annual Report”

Tristan Attends the RSC Electron Diffraction Course

This month Tristan attended the RSC electron diffraction course,a 5 day course comprised of the set up, usage and solving of electron diffraction data collected via TEM microscope. This course was comprehensive course and had plenty of resources to ensure that Tristan will be able perform electron diffraction experiments in the future if necessary. HighlightsContinue reading “Tristan Attends the RSC Electron Diffraction Course”

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 2021 HERCULES School

This month Jen had the exciting opportunity to attend the 2021 HERCULES school, which for the first time ever was held completely online. The HERCULES school is a 5 week training course, providing a broad overview of X-ray, neutron and FEL techniques. As well as lectures, there is also an opportunity to perform experiments atContinue reading “Jen Attends the 2021 HERCULES School”

Jacob and Ed’s Masters Project Presentations

Jacob and Ed took part in their interim project presentations along with other masters students in the materials research groups today. This was a great opportunity to both learn more about the other research going on within the other materials groups and to practice giving presentations outside of our group. They had the unique opportunityContinue reading “Jacob and Ed’s Masters Project Presentations”

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!”
