This year 30 MacDiarmid Institute students - chemists and physicists - met up in Wanaka to discuss the science of surfaces, a key concept when working with nanomaterials of any type. Professor Shane Telfer, Dr Colin Doyle, and Dr Shen Chong, presented their expertise on the topic.
Informal breaks included group hikes up Mt. Iron and around Lake Wanaka. Formal talks and informal activities gave the opportunity to engage and collaborate with students from other MacDiarmid Institute labs around the country, and led to new collaborations, equipment sharing and general advice sessions.
