SMP Seminar: Dr Steve Huband (Warwick), X-ray Diffraction Research Technology Platform


Dr Steve Huband X-ray Diffraction Research Technology Platform, University of Warwick. Abstract: Small angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) is a useful technique for studying the size, shape and morphology of nanomaterials across a wide range of research areas. This includes particles/voids and nanoscale structural features. Dr Huband joined the University of Warwick X-ray diffraction facility in...

Inaugural Lecture: How Research Enhances STEM Education - Professors Alison Voice & Samantha Pugh


An inaugural lecture is a significant milestone in any academic's career, recognising their promotion to Professor. It also offers an opportunity for new professorial colleagues to showcase their work and innovative research with a broad audience, including members of the public, family, friends, and colleagues. This double lecture is the first of a new series...

Watching Paper Dry: Making Photonic Structures from Cellulose Nanocrystals


Professor Mark MacLachlan Abstract: Cellulose nanocrystals (CNCs) obtained from paper or cotton are of great interest for many applications.1 In water, CNCs spontaneously form a chiral nematic lyotropic liquid crystalline phase, which can be preserved in dried films. The helicoidal structural organization of the CNCs in these films resembles the Bouligand structure of chitin found...
