The Physics Department is sad to announce the death of Professor Roger Cowley.

He served two spells as Chairman of Physics, from 1993 to 1996 and then from 1998 to 2002. In 1973 he was the
first ever recipient of the Max Born Medal and Prize, and he was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1978.
In 2008 he was awarded the Faraday Medal of the IoP "For pioneering work in the development and application
of neutron and X-ray scattering techniques to the physics of a wide range of important solid and liquid-state systems”.
Roger will be missed.
