First Barkla X-ray Lecture

Liverpool, UK

25 January 2011

The IUCr President Sine Larsen visited the University of Liverpool to present the First Barkla X-ray Lecture, 'Impact of X-rays on Society'. This formed part of the annual Barkla lecture series and of the University of Liverpool Science and Society lecture series. The occasion also provided an opportunity to visit the molecular biophysics group of the Institute for Integrative Biology.

The lectures are named in honour of Charles Glover Barkla, awarded the 1917 Nobel Prize for Physics for his discovery of the characteristic Röntgen radiation of the elements.
