  • 3rd LIMA Users Club Meeting

    The Laboratory for In-situ Microscopy and Analysis (LIMA) is pleased to announce that it will hold its 3rd Users Club Meeting on Thursday, the 19th of March 2015 in the Department of Engineering Science (Lecture Room 3, Thom Building). Since its launch the Laboratory has enjoyed a number of exciting collaborations aimed at gaining further insight into fundamental aspects of material behaviour in areas ranging from Biology and Physics through to Engineering and Materials Science. This is a friendly and informal event, which presents an opportunity for past, current and future users and industrial partners to share their research, exchange ideas, etc. Refreshments will be provided and there will be an opportunity to visit the facility. If you would like to attend, please e-mail lima@eng.ox.ac.uk. For more information please visit Lima.
