In addition to the Abstract presentations, Synergy Day participants were treated to a BBQ which was put together with help from members of the Microstructure Group: thanks to Laurent Coutuerier, Qingquan Lai, Chenglu Liu and Isaac Robinson for their hard work!
Synergy Day events concluded with Keynote Presentations by two of AMPEL’s leading faculty.
