Named Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada
The Royal Society of Canada recently announced their 2010 Fellows. Among them was Professor Mark Sutton (BSc 1974, MSc 1977, PhD 1981). Professor Sutton, who works at McGill University, uses X-ray diffraction to study the time-dependent behaviour of materials. Using the new synchrotron X-ray sources, he has developed new methods to perform measurements that probe matter on nanometre length scales and with millisecond time resolution
