A matter of atoms

The idea of the “indivisible indestructible particle of matter” was first mooted by the ancient Greek philosophers in the 5th century BC but it was only at the end of the 19th century that experimental tools became available to enable scientists to begin to study the arrangements of atoms within matter. In his lecture, Professor Stephen Donnelly will discuss the development of the powerful instruments, that are now used to study the atomic structure of matter and their application to his own research into defects in solids induced by energetic particles. He will show that for solid materials, as for people, it is the defects that make them interesting.
