NAME researchers attended Imperial College London’s “Tiny Science” event on 17th November 2022. The volunteers demonstrated the principles of ion implantation with the “ion smash” game and discussed its applications to next generation quantum technologies, including masers. Dr Daan Arroo, Dr Shelly Conroy, Dr Wern Ng, Geri Topori and Yongqiang Wen from the Imperial NAME teamContinue reading “Imperial Lates – Tiny Science”
NAME senior technical specialist, Maddison Coke (University of Manchester) was recently involved in IOP family Summer Exhibition, Superheroes unlimited. The 2 month long exhibition in Islington London and associated events, engaged with both schools and the local community to highlight how physics will make a difference in our lives but also emphasising the diversity amongstContinue reading “Superheroes Unlimited: IOP Family Summer Exhibition”
The annual network meeting on Terahertz Microscopy and Quantum Materials came back with a bang. This year’s event was held in the Henry Royce Institute at the University of Manchester. The morning session consisted of talks from invited speakers on challenges and opportunities of terahertz microscopy in the quantum materials area. The discussion-led afternoon sessionContinue reading “THz Microscopy and Quantum Materials Workshop a great success”
The second in-person meeting of the NAME group was held at the University of Leeds. The event was kicked off with tours of their state-of-the-art 800m2 cleanroom, Terahertz suite and inter-connected multichambered Royce Deposition system, followed by a workshop on modelling ion implantation. The most important part of any in-person event is of course theContinue reading “NAME Network gathers for Q3”
NAME researchers from across the network attended the New Scientist Live festival in Manchester, bringing core concepts in Advanced Materials and interaction with light to the public. The major scientific outreach festival was attended by over 40,000 visitors who were able to engage with scientists, games and demonstrators that showed the wonders of science andContinue reading “NAME Network brings the power of Advanced Materials to New Scientist Live”
NAME PhD student Dan Blight (University of Manchester) was recently involved in The Great Science Share Clean Air Challenge. This is a brilliant opportunity for engagement between scientists and over 3,000 primary school children across Greater Manchester. The project aims to highlight the importance of planning for a cleaner future, and to inspire the pupilsContinue reading “Scientific outreach brings a breath of fresh air”
The Maser Research Group at Imperial College London are currently looking for a Research Associate in Quantum Technology (Ref: ENG01844) to join them on a project involving the development and characterisation of spin defects for quantum technologies as part of the NAME Programme Grant. In 2018, the group at Imperial used nitrogen vacancy centres (NVCs)Continue reading “Research Associate in Quantum Technology at Imperial College London Wanted”
