Group members past and present were well represented among the prizewinners at this year’s BCA spring meeting, held in Nottingham.

Paul Saines was awarded the PCG/IoP Physical Crysallography Prize, which recognises “recently published work by a person in the early stages of their career, working in the field of Physical Crystallography, whose research is expected to make a significant impact in the field”.

Andrew Cairns won the PANalytical Thesis Prize for Physical Crystallography “for the best use of techniques or methods of Physical Crystallography in a successfully examined thesis”

And both Dan Harcombe and Mia Baise won poster prizes for their work on magnetic order in terbium formate and structural disorder in cadmium cyanide, respectively.

Congratulations one and all!

(We shouldn’t forget Yue Wu – sometime group adoptee – who also won a poster prize, despite having left his poster in Oxford!)
