Congratulations to Ben Yager for completing his PhD!
His thesis title was 'A Pulsed NMR Study of Helium-3 Adsorbed on Bare and Helium-4 Preplated MCM-41 Using DC SQUID Detection'. The aim of the project was to characterise a candidate system for the observation of a 1D system of electrically neutral interacting fermions, developing new instrumentation and techniques.
Ben is presently employed as a PDRA in the microkelvin group at Royal Holloway working on substrate development for helium adsoption experiments. This work forms part of Prof. John Saunders 'Quantum Phase Transitions and Quantum Criticality in Helium Films' research project, working in collaboration with the London Centre for Nanotechnology.
