The Leverhulme Trust have awarded a £262k grant for a project led by Dr Serena Corr titled “Multifunctional magnetic nanocomposites for artefact conservation”. This project, in collaboration with Dr Eleanor Schofield at the Mary Rose Trust and Professor Rachel O’Reilly at Warwick University, will use smart nanocomposite materials to treat waterlogged wood from Henry VIII’s… Continue reading Leverhulme grant award to Corr group
Serena was recently interviewed by Felice Laake at the ISIS Neutron and Muon source about our recent publication in J. Mater. Chem. A on muon studies of LiFePO4:http://www.isis.stfc.ac.uk/science/physics/might-muons-and-a-microwave-make-marvellous-materials14877.html
Our collaborative work on in situ X-ray absorption studies of Li-ion battery cathodes has been highlighted by the Diamond Light Source as a case study: http://www.diamond.ac.uk/Industry/Case-Studies/Case-Study-Li-ion-Batteries.html
Congratulations to Josefa who has won first prize for the Chemistry and Materials section at the ISIS Neutron training course, for her poster entitled 'Microwave synthesis of LiFe1-xMnxPO4 nanostructures for use as positive electrodes in Li-ion batteries'. Details of the neutron training course can be found here.
A book chapter, co-written by PhD student Marc Williams, on magnetic nanoparticles for targeted cancer diagnosis and therapy has been published by in the Elsevier book series, Frontiers of Nanoscience: http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/B9780080983387000029
In November 2012, we travelled to the ISIS Neutron and Muon facility to carry out muon experiments on LiMPO4 nanoparticles. Our work has been has been highlighted on the ISIS website: http://www.isis.stfc.ac.uk/science/energy/nanoparticles-small-but-mighty13485.html
