Molecular and Nanoscale Physics

Summer School kicks off

23 July 2015

The School of Physics and Astronomy hosted a 4 day Ogden Trust Physics Summer School this week, with 30 AS-level physics students from across the wide Yorkshire area attending. The event was aimed at high achieving students, and included a mix of workshops and lectures designed to challenge and improve their mathematical skills.

Students also had the opportunity to join research groups in the School for a day, visiting research laboratories and gaining experience of using state-of-the-art equipment. This included spectrometers, x-ray diffractometers, liquid crystals and single molecule force spectroscopy.
