|“Studing lithium diffusion in battery materials using muons”||Instrument Scientist for the MuSR beamline at ISIS and Secretary of the International Society for Muon Spectroscopy.
Dr Peter Baker obtained his DPhil from the University of Oxford in 2008 studying transition metal oxides with muons. After post-doctoral work in Oxford on multiferroics he moved to ISIS in 2009. His principal research interests are using muons to study battery materials, iron-based superconductors, and frustrated magnets. He also runs the ISIS muon spectroscopy training school.

“Magnetic field induced transitions and the magnetic glass state”
|Dr. Vasudeva Siruguri took his Ph.D. from the University of Hyderabad, India in 1993 in the field of amorphous magnetic materials. His thesis was awarded the national Best Thesis prize in Solid State Physics. Subsequent to joining the UGC-DAE Consortium for Scientific Research Mumbai Centre in 1993, he has worked extensively on chemical and magnetic structures using neutron diffraction as a probe. He worked as a Visiting Scientist at the Universidad del País Vasco, Bilbao, Spain in 2005 and carried out experiments at several neutron scattering centers in Europe. He has investigated a variety of magnetic materials like magnetic shape memory alloys, low-dimensional systems, CMR and magneto-caloric materials, multiferroics, actinide and rare-earth intermetallics, etc. Recently, Dr. Siruguri has successfully led a team of consortium scientists in the development, installation and commissioning of a high resolution neutron diffractometer using focusing optics at the Dhruva reactor, Mumbai, India. This diffractometer is now operational with sample environment of low temperature and high magnetic field and several university groups are using the facility. He is presently the director of the consortium’s centre at Mumbai, India, which coordinates the utilization of the neutron scattering facilities at BARC by universities.|

“Exploring and controlling magnetism in nanoscale systems”
|Head of ISIS Diffraction and MaterialsProfessor Sean Langridge is head of the ISIS diffraction and Materials Division and an STFC Fellow. Sean has extensive experience of solid state magnetism and in particular the application of neutron and x-ray scattering techniques to nanomagnetism. Previously as a European Union research fellow, Sean worked on the design and construction of the resonant magnetic scattering beam line (ID20) at the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF). Since moving to ISIS, he has focussed on polarised neutron techniques, soft x-ray resonant diffraction combined with more conventional characterisations such as SQUID, Atomic Force Microscopy etc. to study thin films, interfacial and surface magnetism.
Sean was awarded the 2000 Philips Award in physical crystallography for outstanding published work by a young researcher and the 2003 Charles Vernon Boys Medal by the Institute of Physics for his work on the development of advanced measurement techniques for magnetic nanostructures. He was elected Fellow of the Institute of Physics in 2005.
He has published over 160 peer reviewed publications with more than 1700 citations and is a visiting professor at the universities of Leeds and Durham
|“The HBS Project: A High Brilliance Neutron Source”||He is Managing Director of Jülich Center for Neutron Science JCNS and Peter Grünberg Institut PGI. He is also Scientific Director at the Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Zentrum MLZ and full professor for Experimental Physics at RWTH Aschen. His research fields are highly correlated electron systems, nanomagnetism and spintronics and neutron and x-ray scattering methods|
