Synchrotron X-ray Diffraction of skyrmionic crystals

(29 November 2017)

Sam Moody, a level 4 undergraduate research project student, recently visited the single crystal diffraction beamline (I19) at Diamond to undertake an experiment. Sam collected 0.86 TB of anomalous single-crystal data collected around the Cu and Zn absorption edges on pure and doped skyrmionic materials, which he now needs to analyse! He was accompanied by Peter Hatton and Tony the hedgehog who can be found in the photo below.
