Join us for this seminar presenting the new Diamond Light Source Active Materials Laboratory (AML), funded by National Nuclear User Facility (NNUF II).  

The seminar will provide an introduction to the facility as well as examples of synchrotron active materials studies to improve the understanding of chemical and physical properties.

During the event, Fred Mosselmans (Principal Beamline Scientist for the I20 Beamline) will present the AML and will be followed by a series of experienced synchrotron researchers explaining why and how they use synchrotron radiations for their projects. The seminar will also include a virtual tour of the laboratory and time for Q&As.

This seminar is targeted to both active materials researchers who have never used synchrotron radiation before and those more experienced ones who want to know more about the AML and how to access to it.
