Group PDRA Stephen Church presented his work on nanolaser characterization at APC22 in Maastricht. He described our high-throughput methodology to understand the relative contributions of gain, end facet and cavity for photonic integrated application.
Over the next 8 weeks, Tomasz will be working on developing an API for our high-throughput experimentation.
Group postdoc Stephen Church presented a talk entitled “Disentangling Gain, Distributed Losses and End-Facet Losses in Freestanding Nanowire Lasers using Automated High-Throughput Micro-Spectroscopy” at UK Semiconductors in Sheffield, UK. This collaborative work between Manchester and colleagues in Zhejiang and University College London reported a multimodal correlative approach to studying nanolasers.
Group postdoc Stephen Church and PhD student Ruqaiya Al-Abri collaborated with Dhruv Saxena at Imperial College London to produce a review of methods to characterise nanowire lasers. This article, forming part of a celebration issue for the birthday of colleague Prof. Chennupati Jagadish (at the Australian National University) seeks to address many of the challenges in characterising nanowire lasers that may challenge new researchers to the field.

Patrick gave a talk at ICPS Sydney, entitled “Hot-carrier dynamics in Zn-doped GaAs nanowires at sub-picosecond timescales via high-throughput spectroscopy“. This work, in collaboration with Martin Magnusson and colleagues at Lund University was led by group PhD student Ruqaiya Al-Abri.
