On Friday 30th September the School of Mathematics and Physics at the University of Lincoln hosted our first ever PGR symposium event. We invited alumni who are currently PGR students at other institutions to give a short (10-15 minute) presentation about their research projects alongside some of our own PhD students.
The fifth speaker was Nick von Jeinsen, who is currently in his first year studying for a PhD in the Surfaces, Microstructure and Fracture Group at the University of Cambridge. His research is on the development of state-of-the-art scanning helium microscopy (SheM).
In his talk, Nick started by outlining the general motivations for SHeM in comparison to electron microscopy. He then proceeded to discuss the angular and spatial resolution and reported on his efforts to improve the resolution of the instrument.
