PhD position available in Combined modulation excitation neutron and X-ray methods to understand catalytic systems at Harwell Campus

Project DescriptionA longstanding challenge in liquid phase chemical science, is understanding the evolution of atomic and molecular structure of catalytically active sites during chemical reaction processes. To date, traditional experimental probes of liquid structure, such as neutron scattering and X-ray absorption spectroscopy, have largely been limited in their ability to…
