Our First Meeting

Yesterday we had our first ever Lancaster Phosphorus Community meeting! And the ice could only be broken by some good quality cake!

We want our pages to be open to all who are interested in gaining an insight into the world of phosphorus at Lancaster, whether you are an academic or not! So there is lots to come…

The best quote from our meeting was from Hao Zhang…

“Hao, what exactly is DGT?”


DGT actually stands for Diffusive Gradient Thin films, it’s a technique that has been developed by Lancaster’s Hao Zhang and Bill Davison. It was patented in 1993 and now used worldwide as a method of measuring phosphates, sulphides, metals and radionuclides, with a range of applications in soils, sediments and water!

Thank you to everyone who was there we look forward to next time!
