***Postponed due to strike action*** This seminar has been rescheduled to 5 May 2020. Abstract: The National Physical Laboratory (NPL) is the UK’s National Measurement Institute. We are responsible for realising and disseminating the seven SI base units, ensuring that measurements made in the UK are comparable to measurements the world over..
Seminar entitled "Functional conjugated polymer and polymer-based nanowires : benefits of the nanoscale"
There is tremendous interest in one-dimensional nanostructures, since they permit enhanced properties as well as new paradigms for electronic, optical, optoelectronic, and photonic devices. Besides inorganic systems, polymeric nanowires and nanotubes are being intensively investigated. Indeed, they allow to design complex architectures by com..
Why's Climate Justice a Feminist Issue? Come join the conversation for an evening of discussion with stalls and refreshments. Join us for an evening of lively discussion hosted by The School of Social Sciences at The University of Manchester. Enjoy browsing the stalls, participating in an interactive panel discussion, and networking at the W..
In the week of International Women’s Day The Institute of Materials, Minerals & Mining (IOM3) and the Materials Performance Centre are proud to be hosting the Women in Materials Spring Seminar 2020. The seminar will focus on careers, mentoring and networking for women within the materials industry. All genders are welcome at the event.
Seminar entitled "Exploring the impact of carbon structure in low-temperature hydrogen fuel cells by electron microscopy"
Graphitized carbons play a critical role in the electrodes of polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cells. As a support material, they influence the activity and stability of Pt nanoparticles, while also impacting the dispersion of proton-conducting ionomer, the distribution of pore space, and electrical conductivity. In platinum group metal-fr..
This is the North West heat of the competition with a cash prize for the winner. The winner will go onto the National final to represent the North West. *Subject to Participation of other NW Societies
