Dr Silvia Ramos (UKC): Inside Matter
Kent Physics Centre

The way in which electrons and their atoms arrange themselves within a material inextricably linked to its properties. Understanding and controlling the properties of materials is key to human progress (starting from the transition from the Stone Age to the Iron Age, and all the way up to the latest smartphone). Consequently, the investigation of new materials and what they can do is a very active research field.

The question is: how can we look at what atoms and electrons are doing inside the material? Even the most powerful microscopes can only look at the surface but, what happens inside? In this talk we will discuss how small probes, such as x-rays, neutrons and muons are used.

This event is sponsored by the Institute of Physics.
