A number of LCN members took part in the annual Imperial festival on Friday 5th to Sunday 7th May, showcasing innovations in a wide range of areas including technology, health, energy and more. The festival opened to the public allowing people of all ages to gain hands-on experience with experiments and learn about current research undertaken by the LCN community.

Summer School at Lake Como: Magnetic solotronics in semiconductors and Dirac materials

Date: 
Monday, 15 June 2015 (All day) to Saturday, 20 June 2015 (All day)
Type: 
Seminar
Campus:
