Formerly at RAL (1978-1992) and member of JADE, now at Manchester.
Professor of Physics and Head of the Particle Physics Group since April
F.R.S. March 1995
Member of H1.
I have just started a new project to develop neutron detectors with the
eventual aim of detecting neutrinos from e.g. supernovae and which simultaneously
will improve the sensitivity of existing dark matter searches by providing
a background veto. This involves the use of materials like: Boron Trifluoride,
Lithium 6 loaded scintillator and Gadolinium liquid scintillators which
are being evaluated for efficiency, performance and stability.
A test counters to study the Gd loaded liquid scintillator has now been
built and work will begin on a Li6 detector soon.

On the PR side, I got a grant of £4.5k from PPARC to support the Manchester
Science Event, linking Particle Physics to Art and Music.
I have stopped the cricket page because the PA
NewsCentre provides a much better service.
