Extension of solid state chemistry activities
Within a re-organisation NUM concentrates and extends its activities in the field of solid state chemistry (SSC): from July 1 the SSC activities of LDM will be transferred to the new NUM laboratory LMX and two new groups will be created: the group "3703 - Solid State Chemistry" lead by Dr Ekaterina Pomjakushina (upper photo) and the group "3704 - Physical Properties of Materials" lead by Dr Marisa Medarde (lower photo). Both groups are open for collaborations with other PSI research groups. We wish both new group leaders success and satisfaction for their new tasks.
