It is 75 years since James Chadwick won the Nobel Prize in Physics for the discovery of the neutron. In this talk I will describe how modern neutron sources, such as the ISIS Facility at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, can be used to investigate biological and physical materials. Topics to be discussed will include order and excitations in materials, imaging(for example, in engines), seeing magnetic structures, and phase changes in matter. Applications of such work include the storage of hydrogen, which could have a big impact in a future hydrogen-based economy.
Lecture begins at 7.30pm. Professor Neal Skipper is from the Condensed Matter and Material Physics Group, UCL.
