Many materials have a range of interesting and exciting properties that rely on surface treatments to achieve the key behaviour. Professor Clarke will highlight the innovative physical chemistry employed to achieve a wide variety of useful behaviour such as two-colour cars, keeping clean windows, magnetic pattern formation, and triggered release of perfumes.

Speaker

Professor Stuart Clarke (Ron Davies Fellow in Natural Sciences, Jesus College)

Stuart clarke

Professor Stuart Clarke is Professor of Surface Science in the Department of Chemistry, here in Cambridge, although he did his first three degrees in Oxford. Originally joining the Cavendish Laboratory (Physics) in 1993, he moved to the Department of Chemistry in 2000. His work exploits a range of international facilities, such as synchrotron and neutron scattering centres at the worlds leading institutes providing novel experimental methods to investigate interfacial behaviour. Recent interests include interfacial aspects of batteries, supercapacitors, light harvesting molecules, lubrication and corrosion. He is presently a member of the Royal Society of Chemistry Surface Coatings Group aiming to highlight the challenges and benefits of these interesting materials/coverings.
