It's Magnetic Resonance - But not as you know it
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is routinely used in hospitals to image internal structure and blood flow within the human body. Research has shown that it is possible to harness these techniques to study non-biological systems, with many applications across the physical sciences and engineering. Professor Lynn Gladden will explain how processes occurring within optically opaque objects can be revealed, from imaging flow fields in plant cells to mapping chemical conversion within catalytic reactors. Recent advances enable bespoke implementations of the MRI method to be applied to ever more challenging systems, providing insights which cannot be obtained using any other measurement technique.
The lecture is from 6.30 pm - 7.30 pm. Doors open at 6pm and attendance is on a first- come-first-served basis.
