11.13.08 - Noted Scientist Shares Expertise


On a visit sponsored by the British Consulate, materials scientist Valerie Randle spent three days at Calit2 working with graduate students to enhance their understanding of electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD). She concluded the visit by giving a public seminar on the latest developments in EBSD based on advances in technologies. 

Randle has been eminent in her field for more than 20 years and is the recipient of the Institute of Materials’ Rosenhain Medal. She currently directs the Materials Research Centre at Swansea University in Wales, UK. Her visit to UCI in November is part of an initiative to promote British and Southern California university collaborations. 

Randle followed an earlier visit by a research delegation from the University of Warwick, UK to learn more about Calit2’s Zeiss Center of Excellence.
