 Professor Warren Lawrance speaks to the Chemistry students

Yesterday the SMAF Chemistry students were lucky enough to have Professor Warren Lawrance, the Executive Dean of the Faculty of Science and Engineering, present to them on his field of research: Atomic Spectroscopy.

Spectroscopy investigates how matter, light and the universe behave.

He told an interesting story of how 100 years ago there was debate raging as to whether atoms and molecules even existed, but how their discovery caused a scientific revolution.






After one of his images appeared on the cover of The Journal of Chemical Physics, Warren was asked to exhibit his images in the SALA Festival of 2012. 

He sold a number of his images - so Warren is now an artist as well as a scientist!
