PCG-SCMP Winter Meeting "New Results from New Facilities" 5th and 6th November 2009
Our 2009 Winter Meeting at Cosener’s House was held in Abingdon on Thursday 5th and Friday 6th November. The meeting was once again held jointly with the ISIS Crystallography User Group meeting. There was a poster session and the opportunity for a small number of junior researchers to give short oral presentations.
Main speakers were:
Simon Clarke (Oxford) "Controlling the structures and properties of layered chalcogenides and pnictides"
Aurora Cruz-Cabeza (Cambridge) "Practical lessons from energy landscapes in organic crystals" [PCG PANalytical Thesis Prize winner]
Martin Jones (Oxford) "Diffraction studies of hydrogen storage materials"
Pascal Manuel (ISIS) "First results from WISH: a case study with a new iron pnictide"
Stephen Moggach (Edinburgh) "Big squeeze, recent developments in high-pressure single crystal diffraction on I19 at Diamond"
Lucian Pascut (Bristol) "Charge order in the triangular metallic antiferromagnet AgNiO2 probed by single crystal resonant X-ray scattering using I16 at Diamond"
Paul Raithby (Bath) "Photocrystallography - from static to dynamic"
Carlo Vecchini (ISIS) "Magnetoelastic coupling in the frustrated antiferromagnetic triangular lattice CuMnO2"
