Two young CTAMOP researchers have won the top prizes at an international meeting in Dublin.

Jack Wragg and Kathryn Hamilton won the prizes for best poster and best talk respectively at the summer meeting of the Atomic and Molecular Interactions Group: a sub-group of the Institute of Physics.

Jack’s poster, entitled ‘An RMT two electron outer region for modelling of ultrafast dynamics’, was a summary of the work he has carried out during his PhD with Prof. Hugo van der Hart, which he defended succesfully in May.

Kathryn is a first year PhD student working with Dr. Andrew Brown, and her talk ‘Electrons under inspection – Probing electron dynamics via harmonic generation’ presented the first study she has carried out into ultrafast processes in two colour laser pulses.

The meeting was a strong showing for CTAMOP with five of the thirteen contributed talks given by PhD students in the group, and seven posters presented by CTAMOP members.

Congratulations to Jack and Kathryn, and to all the PhD students who took part.
