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”
This year has started with an exciting adventure for Jen as she moved to France to begin working at the Institut Laue-Langevin (ILL) in Grenoble! Jen will be joining her co-supervisor, Dr Andrew Wildes in the diffraction group to continue her PhD research over the next 2 years. Happy New Year Everyone!
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”
This March, Jen attended the ISIS neutron training course, a practical course that gives PhD students the opportunity to get hands-on experience of neutron scattering with ISIS instruments and to meet fellow students just joining the neutron scattering community. As part of the Physics stream, Jen got the opportunity to perform experiments on GEM, INESContinue reading “Jen attends the 2020 ISIS Neutron Training Course”
We are now accepting applications for a fully funded 3-year PhD studentship in our group on the Elucidating the Role of Chemical Disorder in Quantum Materials to begin in October 2019. See here for further details and feel free to get in touch. Come join us!
This month has been a busy and exciting start to the new academic year. After his arrival in the group, Aly joined Kate and Lucy on their first high-pressure neutron scattering experiment on the PEARL beamline at the ISIS Neutron and Muon Facility. While there, Lucy performed with her band of neutron scatterers, Life isContinue reading “September Update”
This week we welcome Aly Abdeldaim to the group as a new PhD student. Aly joins us from Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden to take up his ISIS PhD Facility Development Studentship.
This week, Kate and Lucy travelled to UC Davis to attend HFM 2018. While there, Kate gave a poster on her latest results on inorganic and organic-inorganic hybrid quantum kagome antiferromagnets, including new data from the MuSR and GEM instruments at the ISIS Neutron and Muon Facility, and Lucy gave a talk on magnetic frustrationContinue reading “Kate and Lucy Attend the 2018 International Conference on Highly Frustrated Magnetism”
Kate attended the ISIS Neutron Training Course this month, which is a 10-day course that enables PhD students to gain hands-on experience using the instruments at ISIS, alongside complementary lectures. As part of the physics group, Kate had the opportunity to perform experiments on several instruments including HRPD, Merlin and Maps. Neutron scattering experiments willContinue reading “Kate Attends the 2018 ISIS Neutron Training Course”
This Semester, we are joined by Brendan Ward-O’Brien, a 3rd-year MChem student who will work with us on his CHEM366 research project. Brendan’s research aims to explore the feasibility and effect of chemical doping in quantum magnets. Welcome to the group, Brendan!
