Noah Waterfield Price wins the PANalytical Thesis Prize in Physical Crystallography

25 November 2019

Noah Waterfield Price, a joint DPhil student between the University of Oxford and the Diamond Light source, was awarded the PANalytical Thesis Prize in Physical Crystallography on November 4th, 2019 at Milton Hill House near Abingdon. The Malvern PANalytical Thesis Prize in Physical Crystallography is awarded every year for the best use of techniques or methods of Physical Crystallography in a successfully examined thesis submitted in the previous 2 years. Noah’s winning dissertation, entitled “Domans and functionality in multiferroic BiFeO3 films”, was co-supervised by Dr Sarnjeet Dhesi at Diamond and by Professor Paolo G. Radaelli at the Clarendon Laboratory, University of Oxford. Noah's success follows those of two other members of Oxford Physics: Alexander Hearmon PANalytical Thesis Prize 2014 with a thesis entitled"Neutron, X-ray, and Optical Studies of Multiferroic Material", and Dr Roger Johnson, winner of the Physical Crystallography Early-Career Prize in 2014. Well done Noah!
