During April three MSc and PhD students from University of Western Cape, South Africa visited the department for three weeks, hosted by the nuclear physics group. The students, Senamile Masango, Cebo Ngwetsheni and Kenzo Abrahams were here to learn about developing radiation detectors for societal applications like medicine, homeland security and environmental monitoring. This was part of an STFC-funded Global Challenges grant which the department received. This is a one-year project with funding in the grant to establish detector laboratories at UWC and University of Zululand. The Zululand students will visit at a later date.
