University of Surrey takes SPIRIT research to the House of Commons
Nick Bright, a student in the Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences at the University of Surrey joined other early-career scientists from across the country who were selected to compete in a national scientific competition, SET for Britain, at the House of Commons. His poster was entitled Depth Profiling of Fingerprint and Ink Signals using Ion Beams, and uses the new technique, MeV SIMS, that has been established as a result of the Joint Reserach Activities under SPIRIT.
SET for Britain is an exhibition of posters by early-stage and early-career research scientists, engineers and technologists. The exhibition gives them the opportunity to present their work to their local Ministers of Parliament and their scientific peers. Nick's poster was well recieved.
Ion Beams in Forensics Film, Institute of Physics :
The SPIRIT project will be highlighted in a film which is being created by the University of Surrey and the Institute of Physics. The film will concentrate on new advances in ion beam analysis for the identification of gunshot residue.
