Peter Beton, University of Nottingham, UK
Title: Order and disorder in adsorbed molecular arrays

Peter Beton joined the University of Nottingham in 1988 as a postdoc and, following a period as a Royal Society University Research Fellow, was appointed to the academic staff in 1994. His research interests lie at the intersections between materials science, physics, chemistry and device technology and his recent work has been focussed on supramolecular templates, random tiling, two-dimensional covalent networks and the deposition of polymers and polymer nanorings on metal surfaces.
