Dr Michael Tayler has been selected to participate in the 67th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting in Chemistry by the scientific review panel of the Council for the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings. The meeting will take place from 25th to 30th June 2017 in Lindau, Germany.

Only the 400 most qualified young scientists are given the opportunity to enrich and share the unique atmosphere of the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings.

Michael works in the magnetic resonance group in this department, where he is supported by the European Commission under the Marie Curie International Fellowship program.  For the first two years of this fellowship he worked at the University of California, Berkeley.  Prior to this, he worked as a post-doc in Nijmegen, studied a PhD in Southampton and read Natural Sciences at Cambridge.

Michael uses atomic magnetometers to detect NMR at ultralow magnetic field.  He says "ultralow field (less than 1 microtesla) is attractive because of high magnetic homogeneity.  This is advantageous for studying the behavior of fluids near phase boundaries, where conventional NMR methods can suffer from the large internal magnetic gradients in the material".
