On September 12th, 2019, the Department of Materials Science & Metallurgy of Cambridge University held a Grand Opening Ceremony for their brand-new Allalin Chronos tool.

Prof Rachel Oliver and her team gathered more than 50 researchers from the UK scientific and industrial community, to officially introduce this new tool, funded through an Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) grant.

The day started with the official opening ceremony by Prof Lindsay Greer (Head of the School of Physical Sciences), then went on with many talks about the first Cathodoluminescence results obtained on the tool. The results encompassed materials ranging from compound semiconductor materials and devices to perovskite and geological samples, hinting at promising publications to come.
Prof Rachel Oliver followed with the practicalities of access to the tool, which is a shared facility for the UK scientific community.

Attolight warmly thanks Prof Rachel Oliver and her team for their hospitality and the organisation of this great event !
