FAREWELL to James Loudon

 

 

James and his new toys James has been a stalwart of the group for many years, and will be sadly missed as he leaves us to take up a post-doctoral position at Cornell. We wish him good luck with his research on layered magnetic structures, and hope to entice him back at some point in the future.

FAREWELL to Dr Judith C Yang

 

 

Judith punting Judith has been visiting for two months, as part of a sabattical from her assistant professorship at the School of Engineering, University of Pittsburgh. Her research interests include surface oxidation processes and electron microscopy, with an emphasis on in situ experiments. She leaves us to continue her sabattical tour at the University of Oxford.

CONGRATULATIONS to Ed Simpson

 

 

Ed hit the news with his beautiful micrograph Magnetic Nanotubes, depicting the magnetic field lines around cobalt-palladium-embedded carbon nanotubes. He won third prize in an image competition run by the UK Micro and Nanotechnology Network.

FAREWELL to Robin Taylor

 

 

Robin retired after a sterling service to the group over many years. He will be sorely missed, and we are hopeful he will pop back occasionally to say hello... and to give us the benefit of his masterful experience with our microscopes! His retirement coincided with his birthday, and while Robin will continue to live locally, he is soon to plan a celebratory trip to China.

CONGRATULATIONS to DR Dave Cooper

 

 

Congratulations to Dave, who passed his PhD viva shortly before jetting off for a new position in Grenoble. We wish him good luck with his studies, especially learning French. Dave sent us this photo of Chamrousse, 50 minutes from Grenoble... we're not jealous at all!
