APPLIED SUPERCONDUCTIVITY SEMINARS - 2ND ZOOM INVITATION 28.05.20

21ST MAY 2020 ONWARDS

Dear Colleagues

Given the impact of the current lockdown restrictions on conference travel and laboratory-based research, John Durrell and I are putting together a series of seminars on Applied Superconductivity to give post docs and experienced research students in the UK community an opportunity to present their research.  These will be held at 2-3pm on Thursday afternoons for the next 4 weeks:

We are very pleased to announce that Michael Parizh, GE Global Research, is  giving this week’s seminar at 2pm on Thursday 28th May. The title of his talk is “Superconducting Magnets for Magnetic Resonance Imaging".  See the outline below for further details.  The event will be hosted on Zoom, opening at 1.50 to allow everyone in for a 2pm start:
