We would like to invite you to the first instalment of our brand new monthly webinar series, a Live Family Webinar ‘Electrifying colour changing crystals’ on Wednesday 21st October at 16:00pm. Everyone is welcome to tune in as this webinar is specifically aimed at a general audience and no previous knowledge is required. As always you will get the opportunity to ask our experts any questions you might have. You can catch up with our previous webinar series on our website here.
** You’ve charged your phone but have you ever thought about charging crystals? This week we will be exploring what happens when you ‘plug’ in a crystal - using X-rays to relate changes in colour that we see on the outside to changes occurring at the atomic scale on the inside. Tune in on Wednesday to find out how we manipulate crystals and why! **
David and Amy from our Public Engagement team will be joined by Dr Lucy Saunders, a scientist working on our crystal diffraction beamline I19, who will take us through why crystals are important, how we can change their colour, and what this could mean in the future. Lucy will then answer your questions, and David and Amy will be on hand to answer any questions you have about Diamond in general.
Tune in on Wednesday 21st October via Zoom (please note: questions will be submitted via the ‘Q & A’ function and attendees will be not be visible during the webinar).
