Serena was recently interviewed by Felice Laake at the ISIS Neutron and Muon source about our recent publication in J. Mater. Chem. A on muon studies of LiFePO4:http://www.isis.stfc.ac.uk/science/physics/might-muons-and-a-microwave-make-marvellous-materials14877.html
Our collaborative work on in situ X-ray absorption studies of Li-ion battery cathodes has been highlighted by the Diamond Light Source as a case study: http://www.diamond.ac.uk/Industry/Case-Studies/Case-Study-Li-ion-Batteries.html
Congratulations to Josefa who has won first prize for the Chemistry and Materials section at the ISIS Neutron training course, for her poster entitled 'Microwave synthesis of LiFe1-xMnxPO4 nanostructures for use as positive electrodes in Li-ion batteries'. Details of the neutron training course can be found here.
Serena is a new associate editor for the RSC journal, Nanoscale, which publishes experimental and theoretical work spanning nanoscience and nanotechnology: http://blogs.rsc.org/nr/2013/05/07/new-nanoscale-associate-editor-seren-corr/
Serena has been profiled in the latest issue of RSC Chemistry World, talking about starting out in academia: http://www.rsc.org/chemistryworld/2013/04/early-career-young-academic-serena-corr
In November 2012, we travelled to the ISIS Neutron and Muon facility to carry out muon experiments on LiMPO4 nanoparticles. Our work has been has been highlighted on the ISIS website: http://www.isis.stfc.ac.uk/science/energy/nanoparticles-small-but-mighty13485.html
