Statement on diversity

Following the GRC (Gordon Research) Conference on Liquid Crystals Jan, Catherine, JungHyun and Anshul attended this June in Maine, and a seminar on gender inclusion within research labs Jan and Anshul attended, we felt it was necessary to include a statement about this on our website.

We live in polarizing times when it's become easier than ever to ostracize people just because they may think a bit differently, or look a bit differently, from us, but actually these individual traits can help our communities work and think better.

Have a look at our statement under the Team menu under On Diversity & Inclusion.

ESMP group at the Luxembourg Science Festival

The Experimental Soft Matter Physics group will participate in the Luxembourg Science Festival, during the sessions for school classes on Thursday 12th and Friday 13th of November. We will exhibit a show on polarized light and birefringence, and how observation between crossed polarizers can be used to reveal information about materials that is hidden to the naked eye, like where stresses build up and whether or not an anisotropic order exists on macroscopic scale.

We will be in the "Tente parvis", at workshop 38: "Lumière fantastique!".
