Faul & Hall groups enjoy a day on the beach!

With the sun shining and time for a break from the lab, the Hall and Faul groups headed out to South Wales to Rhossili Bay for a day of swimming, beach games, bbq’ing and fun!

Exciting science in Berlin and Golm!

Charl spent two days in Germany last week, visiting friends, collaborators and ex-colleagues at the TUBerlin, the newly opened BasCat joint laboratories, and the MPI for Colloids and Interfaces (where Charl spent 4 years).

It was a great time to catch up, but more importantly, to learn about and be inspired by excellent science! Very exciting!

ICSM 2014 in Turku, Finland

Charl is currently attending the International Conference on Synthetic Metals, ICSM2014, in Turku, where he gave a talk on Thursday.  The conference, organised by Ronald Osterbacka and colleagues in Turku, has attracted a large number of research active in the fields of conducting and semi-conduncting organic materials.
