- A chiral molecular thin film under the microscope.
We would like to invite you to the next instalment of our monthly webinar series, a Live Family Webinar ‘You spin me right round: Next generation electronics and chiral materials' on Wednesday 19th May 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 webinars on our website here.
**From wearable sensors to personalised medicines and solar panels, nanostructures made from functional molecules are already enhancing our lives. Nonetheless, science is still playing catchup as nature has been nailing nanostructures for hundreds of millions of years. Whether it is peacock feathers or butterfly wings, science can only aspire to manipulating matter at the subatomic scale. This week Jess will reveal that the most miraculous molecular structures of all exist as a pair of non superimposable mirror images; where the left and right-handed forms can have remarkably different materials properties. Tune in on Wednesday to learn more!**
Amy and David from our Public Engagement team will be joined by Dr Jess Wade, a Research Fellow at Imperial College with a passion for public engagement and sharing her science. Jess will take us through the process of running her experiments at Diamond and the impacts her research may have on the future of electronics! Jess will also answer all of your questions about her work and chiral polymers, and as always Amy and David will be on hand to answer any questions you have about Diamond in general.
Tune in on Wednesday 19th May via Zoom (please note: questions can be submitted via the ‘Q & A’ function and attendees will be not be visible during the webinar).
