Visit to Rutherford Appleton Labs

To round off the first year course, we joined the Materials for Demanding Environments CDT in a visit to the Rutherford Appleton Labs in Oxfordshire. Students had tours of the Diamond Light Source and the ISIS neutron and muon source in addition to hearing a series of talks on the kinds of experiments that can be carried out at these national facilities. Some CDT students have successfully applied for beam time and used these facilities in their own research.
