Roger Beadle retires

Roger Beadle has retired after 36 years at the Cavendish Laboratory - much of that time working as a technician in the Optoelectronics Group. Many members of the group will remember how he was able to help them with the practicalities of getting research done. At the OE group presentation, Professor Sir Richard Friend said that Roger was mentioned in the acknowledgements of more PhD degree theses than most Professors, in genuine thanks for his assistance in designing and making equipment!
