  • 19Jun

    Goldsmiths Lecture Room 1

    The first Materials Science Writing Group!  All Department members welcome! 

    The format of the group works for any type of document: a paper, a thesis, a grant proposal, a cover letter, etc. Simply put, anything that you need to write. 

    The session will last for roughly 1 hour and will take the following structure: 

    - 2 minutes of discussion, in pairs, about what you are working on and what you hope to achieve in this session 
    - 8 minutes of a writing exercise. This can be completely unrelated to your current project; it serves only as a ‘warm-up’. Some example exercises will be provided 
    - 50 minutes of uninterrupted writing for your document 

    You can write on your laptop or by hand, which ever works best for you.  See you there!

  • 20Jul

    Goldsmiths Lecture Room 1

    Prof. R.F. Egerton, University of Alberta, Canada

    Spectroscopy and energy-filtered TEM imaging using low energy losses (< 50 eV) is a useful technique (e.g. for band-gap mapping) but offers relatively poor spatial resolution, due to delocalization of the inelastic scattering. We will consider how this delocalization can be calculated, measured and perhaps modelled with sufficient accuracy to allow a useful improvement in the spatial resolution.

    All Department members welcome.

  • 02Nov

    Department of Materials Science and Metallurgy

    The Department of Materials Science & Metallurgy will be participating in the University's Postgraduate Open Day on Friday 2 November.  During the afternoon session at the Department there will be opportunities to discuss PhD projects, the MASt in Materials Science, and MPhil in Micro- and Nanotechnology Enterprise.  Guided tours of the labs, and course directors will be available to meet students.
