17 May Talking Science

May 17, 2019

Pickavance Theatre, Harwell Campus at 1330 and again at 1900

Lights, crystals, action! by Dr Claire Murray.
Scientists at Diamond and around the world study calcium carbonate
crystals, to understand how best to take advantage of its amazing
properties. It is commonly found in shells, paper manufacturing and
limestone. Come along to this talk to hear about how light, billions of
times brighter than the sun, can reveal the atoms which make up our
world, and how we have worked with more than 1000 students across
the UK to study calcium carbonate in more detail than ever before. Learn
about the power of student science, see hands on demos, and enjoy the
beauty of diffraction.
