Two great reasons for attending the event – firstly learn about muons, and how they can be used to look at materials at atomic level and then about new materials being developed at Reading University that self-repair and some of their current and future benefits. 

Gone in 60 Microseconds – Using Exotic Antimatter to Study Materials

Dr Peter Baker (Instrument Scientist at the ISIS Pulsed Neutron and Muon Source)
Muons are fundamental particles rather like electrons, but 200 times heavier. Due to two quirks of particle physics they happen to be a powerful probe of magnetic fields inside materials and a lightweight imposter for the proton. Both muons and anti-muons are used across a wide range of materials science problems. This talk will describe some of those applications including debased Roman coins, magnetic soap and solid-state batteries.

Healable Polymers and Beyond

Dr Lewis Hart (Postdoctoral Researcher in Material Chemistry)
Have you ever damaged your phone screen or found a scratch on your car? Wouldn’t it be great if we had materials which, much like our own bodies, could repair themselves or be reprocessed to prolong their useful lifetime and reduce their environmental impact?

At the University of Reading, we’ve been developing polymers which take advantage of molecular self-assembly, to design and produce healable systems to address real-world materials challenges. Come and join Dr Lewis Hart and explore how we’ve developed these materials over the past decade and see where they might take us in the future.
