The University welcomed representatives from around the world last month as part of the Annual Conference of the British Association for Crystal Growth.

Two University academics chaired the event, Dr Tariq Mahmud from the Institute of Particle Science and Engineering (School of Chemical and Process Engineering) and Dr Yi-Yeoun Kim from the School of Chemistry.

The Conference, which was held at the Rose Bowl, was inaugurated by Professor David Hogg, Pro-Vice Chancellor for Research and Innovation. One hundred and thirty five delegates attended the Conference which featured talks on:

  • Crystallisation modelling across length scales
  • Ice nucleation and crystallisation
  • Industrial crystallisation processes
  • Crystallisation for product formulation
  • Fundamentals of nucleation and crystal growth

Over the three-day event academics and researchers, including PhD students, were provided with a space to discuss their ideas and findings. The event also celebrated the UN International Year of Crystallography 2014, marking 100 years since the discovery of X-ray diffraction, which opened up the study of crystalline material.
