Crystals have been objects of mystery for millennia yet many are unaware that much solid material around us is made from crystals. The importance of crystals lies in their beauty and practical applications in today’s technology. This talk will follow historical developments that allowed scientists to describe the nature of crystals and show how the science has advanced over the last 100 years; from resolution of the simplest structures to modelling molecular crystals such as proteins and viruses.
Refreshments are served from 6pm on the day of the lecture for a 6.30pm start. While these lectures are free to attend, please register online.
