Cutting edge technology is being driven by advancements in materials. Understanding how solids have the properties they do depends heavily on the underlying structure. In amorphous materials such as glass, the lack of long range ordering makes it extremely difficult to understand how atoms like to arrange themselves. This talk will explore a new breed of materials called metallic glass, what makes them special, their current applications in modern technology (include iPhones) and what we know about how they work.
For all of the event details please see the Preview Day page.

The Observatory is open for public tours, usually on the first Wednesday of each month, offering a chance to look through the university's telescope. This will be preceded by a short talk on astronomy (around 30 minutes) plus an opportunity to ask questions, followed by a tour of the dome. In the event of bad weather, the observing will not be possible, but the talk and tour of facilities will go ahead.

The love of tinkering is perhaps the single most universal trait among scientists. From designing an experiment to building a computer application to solving a differential equation, the cycle of "observe - explain - test - revise” is at the root of the scientific creative process.
