Blogging a crystal structure a day in 2014


Author: Kirrily Rule

Kirrily Rule is a neutron scatterer whose interests lie in the realm of magnetism. She operates the thermal triple axis spectrometer, Taipan, at ANSTO and works mainly at trying to understand the dynamics in magnetic materials. While this might be a far cry from crystallography, Kirrily understands the need to fully understand crystal and magnetic structures before embarking on the detailed investigations of the dynamics. Kirrily's main research fields involves low dimensional and frustrated magnetic systems.
