Satellite Meeting - The Future of Chemistry with MAX IV and ESS


The Future of Chemistry with MAX IV and ESS

Satellite Meeting to the first Swedish Chemical Society Meeting in Lund, Wednesday 20th of June 2018

What can MAX IV and ESS do for Chemistry in Sweden? Join us for a light lunch, lectures and midsummer mingle with drinks on the final eve of the first Swedish Chemical Society meeting and find out.

Admission is free. The programme can be viewed by following this link.

List of speakers

Regine von Klizing, Technische Universität Darmstadt

Prof. Regine's group works in the area of phases and interfaces. They examine the interactions in thin liquid films (foam films and wetting films between two solid interfaces) and at the air/water interface (pure water, and multi-component solutions).

Another main focus is polyelectrolyte multilayers and temperature and pH sensitive hydrogels. This includes production and characterisation of nanostructured (two dimensional) polymer films with specific response characteristics, and the analysis of structure-property relationship that enables the practical use of such materials for “smart” switches and sensors.

Lise Arleth, Niehls Bohr Institute, University of Copenhagen

Prof. Arleth is a Professor and Head of the The Structural Biophysics Group at the Niels Bohr Institute, Faculty of Science, Copenhagen University, Denmark. Her main research topics include biophysics and physical chemistry with the main focus on structural investigations of macromolecules and their aggregates in solution.

Paul Shearing, University College London

Dr. Paul's research interests are in electrochemical engineering – the study and design of electrochemical processes in devices including fuel cells, batteries and electrochemical reactors. Projects include understanding and development of Li batteries, development of Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFCs), electro-reduction of spent nuclear fuels using molten salt reactions, and monitoring corrosion in PEM fuel cells.

John R. Bargar, SLAC lead PI, Stanford

Dr. John Bargar is a Lead Scientist, Geochemistry and Biogeochemistry Division, at the Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Laboratory. He has experience in low-temperature geochemistry, biogeochemistry, and synchrotron-based x-ray spectroscopy, spectromicroscopy, and scattering techniques, laboratory and field systems. His research interests include biogeochemistry of redox active metals and light elements, structure and reactivity of biogenic nanominerals, and mineral-water interface geochemistry.
