Patrick has been appointed as a Scientific Advisor for the Berlin-based startup conductiv.ai. Conductiv will merge simulation and process data to reduce the iterations required for optimization of semiconductor manufacture.
A fully funded EPSRC studentship (DTP) will be available in the group for a September 2021 start. This studentship is associated with the “Big-data for nano-electronics” project, and is open to UK-based applicants (EU applicants living in the UK may also be eligible for some support).
The project will develop a framework for producing and analysing high-throughput imaging and spectroscopy data for inhomogeneous nano-electronic devices, and will include both experimental and computational work.
In particular, students with a good first degree or MSc in physics, electronic materials, nanotechnology or photonics are encouraged to apply.
The group has been awarded funds to purchase a new ultrafast laser facility for the Photon Science Institute through an EPSRC Core Equipment Award (EP/V036343/1). This grant will be used to replace the aging Coherent RegA system with a turn-key highly tunable ultrafast laser system with optical parametric amplifier – details to follow!
The group welcomes a bumper set of new MPhys (Masters project) students on a range of projects. Welcome to all students!
Big-data for nano-electronics – development of machine-learning tools for analysis of imaging and spectroscopic data for nanotechnology
Rafe Whitehead, Thomas Blackmore, Omar Ahmed, Jonathan Ryding
Earth’s-field NMR – design and construction of an NMR system to operate in the Earth’s magnetic field
Luis Pedro Martins Mestre, Alexander O’Sullivan, James Overend, Ewan Kilpatrick
i-TCSPC analytics – studying single photon sources with inteferometric single-photon counting
The group welcomes our new PDRA working on the Big-data for Nano-Electronics project. Dr Stephen Church joins the group from working in cubic-phase GaN for white-light and RGB LEDs.
Welcome to Stephen!
