Great workshop for the KCL and ICL Reactive Plasmonics team

The Royal Society's Kavli Centre at Chicheley Hall was a splendid venue for a Creativity@ home event for the Reactive Plasmonics team at King's College, London, and Imperial College, London, led by Professor Anatoly Zayats. After an initial training day, the two-day off-site workshop was hugely productive, generating a host of great scientific ideas. 

Dennis speaks at Valve World 

The big event in the annual calendar in the valve industry is the Valve World conference in Dusseldorf. At the suggestion of IMI Critical Engineering (thank you, IMI!), Dennis was invited to give a plenary presentation, and to run a workshop, and was also featured in Valve World Magazine. Those unfamiliar with the valve industry might think that valves - which have indeed been around for

hundreds of years - are now fully evolved, and so offer little scope for innovation. Not at all. Valves, and related components such as actuators, are of immense importance in controlling the flow of fluids in applications

from petrol pumps to power stations, from a hospital dialysis machine to a domestic

heating system. And the scope for successful creativity and innovation is huge.

New thermodynamics book

Over the last year or so, Dennis has been working with UCL Professor Paul Dalby on a new textbook on thermodynamics, aimed at undergraduates in the chemical and biological sciences, and also at graduate students who need to brush up on this

notoriously difficult topic. The book will be published in October 2017 by Oxford University Press.
