The leaf-and-neutron logo.

The logo seen at the top of these pages is of a maple leaf being struck by a beam of neutrons. Neutron diffraction has been my primary experimental technique for many years now. The maple leaf represnets the biological aspects of my research, as well as the fact that I am now based in Canada. The original concept for this logo is attributed to Alastair McIvor of the Canadian Neutron Beam Centre, but this particular design is mine own.
