A warm welcome to Arpita and Sudeshna who have joined us from the Universities of Kontanz and Nottingham respectively. Arpita join us a Rutherford Fellow and Sudeshna as a Newton Fellow.
Congratulations to Davide for successfully defending his PhD thesis entitled "Nanostructured Materials for Water Purification: Synthesis, Insight and Performance Evaluation".
Congratulations to Yu for successfully completing his MSc thesis entitled "Synthesis and characterisation of Zn2NF". Yu will graduate this summer.
Congratulations to Laura for successfully defending her PhD thesis entitled "Sorption properties in lightweight hydrogen storage materials for portable power applications".
Congratulations to Nico for winning the prize for best talk at the ISIS Muon Training Course for his talk "m+ Diffusion in Copper".
Congratulations to Nico for winning a RSC Researcher Mobility grant (£ 4109) to spend 3 months at the University of Barcelona. Nico will study DFT approaches to understanding the electronic structure of complex lithium halides.
Dr. Han gave a talk on "Design and Synthesis of New Layered Metal Selenide Nanostructures for Thermoelectric Applications" in EPSRC Thermoelectric Network Meeting held in NPL, London.
Congratulations to Marc for successfully defending his PhD thesis entitled "Nanoconfinement of complex hydrides in porous hosts for hydrogen storage applications".
A warm greeting to Prof. Yuehui Wang who has joined us from the Zhonshan Institute, University of Electronic Science and Technology of China.
Congratulations to James for his new job. Best wishes and we hope you do well.
Three new PhD students joined the group.
Congratulations to Giulia Balducci for successfully defending her PhD thesis entitled "Light weight metal hydride - hydroxide systems for solid-state hydrogen storage".
Our interests lie in the synthesis, structure and physical properties of inorganic solids.
The underlying theme in our approach is to identify and modify materials on the basis of
their atomic or ionic arrangements. To achieve this in often exotic systems of materials,
requires use of original and unusual synthetic methodology.
We are primarily concerned with investigating non-oxide systems where new structure types and bonding arrangements lead to unexpected and exciting properties.
Our aims are to discover new materials with potentially useful physical properties, particularly with projected applications in electronics, information technology and sustainable energy.
