Charl was invited to speak at the Australasian Colloid and Interface Society’s Biennial symposium in Hobart, Tasmania! He spoke about some of the work from the FRG in the area of electroactive materials.
It has been a great meeting so far and a good chance to meet up with some old friends (like Dr Rico Tabor, now from Monash University)! And all of this taking place in a wonderful setting!
Long-standing collaborators, Prof Olli Ikkala and Dr Nikolay Houbenov from the Molecular Materials Group at Aalto University (Helsinki, Finland), visited the FRG on Thursday and Friday. In order to welcome them, and all the new arrivals in the Faul and Hall groups, we went to the White Bear!
Olli ended his visit on Friday afternoon with a stimulating presentation in the Centre for NSQI.
