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.
Patrick took part in a virtual panel discussion featuring collaborator Prof. Fu Lan (Australian National University) on the topic of nanowire quantum well arrays.
The ICANX talk was moderated by Haixia Zhang of Peking University, and featured Weida Hu (SITP) and Noushin Nasir (Macquarie).

Patrick hosted four external speakers at an early career researcher seminar. The four speakers were:
- Chen-Hsuan Hsu from RIKEN,
- Dharmraj Patil from A*STAR – Agency for Science, Technology and Research,
- Matthew Coak from University of Warwick
- Silvia Motti from University of Oxford
The OMS group invited Professor Dragomir Neshev, director of the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Tranformative Metal-Optical Systems to gave the Photon Science Institute Seminar today. He spoke about the new institute and a specific example of non-linear optical metamaterials for night-vision.
Patrick gave a seminar at the University of Sheffield, where he was kindly hosted by Dr Jenny Clark of the Department of Physics and the Sheffield Laser Lab. He spoke about exploiting functional inhomogeneity for optimizing nano-optoelectronics, and learnt a lot about ultrafast spectroscopy for singlet fission.
Patrick gave the Oxford Condensed Matter Physics seminar on A needle in a needlestack – exploiting functional inhomogeneity for optimized nano-optoelectronics. In this talk, he presented on recent advances in using high-throughput spectroscopy to study nanowires for optoelectronic applications.
The group welcomed Dr Antonio Hurtado of the University of Strathclyde Institute of Photonics to give a seminar at the Photon Science Institute. He spoke on Neuromorphic Photonics – the use of lasers as non-linear elements in a neuromorphic system.
