Frederick Marlton, Neutrons, Prizes and AINSEA(&NZ)BUGNSS

December 2 and 3 this year saw the annual AANSS meeting in Sydney.  Now, AANSS means ‘AINSE/ANBUG Neutron Scattering Symposium’, and AINSE stands for ‘Australian Institute of Nuclear Science and Engineering’ while ANBUG stands for ‘Australian Neutron Beam User’s Group’, and the A in ANBUG secretly stands for ‘Australia & New Zealand’, so maybe the meeting should be called AINSEA(&NZ)BUGNSS.  Or perhaps not…

Anyway, ANU Honours student in 2013, Mr Frederick Marlton, gave a marvellous presentation on “Microwave Synthesis and Structural Phase Diagram of Hexagonal Yttrium Manganates”, his research project.  It is a credit to Fred that he then walked away with the prize for Best Student Talk, and here’s a picture:

Well done Fred.

As you can see, it was an extremely formal occasion, with T-shirts all around. Well done Fred!

Fred undertook his project working with me in the Research School of Chemistry at ANU, with help from PEMS at UNSW Canberra.
