Congratulations to lab member Stefan Skalsky, who submitted his PhD thesis today. He work, entitled “Interferometric Time-correlated Single Photon Counting for Nano-optoelectronic Characterisation” covers his research on the i-TCSPC tool.
In this work, we combine high-quality nanolaser growth (ANU) with high-throughput optical spectroscopy (Manchester) and high-speed pick-and-place technology (Strathclyde) to demonstrate scaled-up assembly of nanowire-based laser systems. We find that while the transfer process can affect the lasing properties of the nanowires, a class of wires exist where little or no difference in threshold is observed. Furthermore, the lasing wavelength is more robust under transfer than the laser threshold.
These findings and optimization procedure point the way towards the development of multiple element active nanowire laser photonic systems.

A welcome to Hoyeon Choi, who joins the group as a PhD student from the Advanced Photonics Research Institute at the Gwangju Institute of Science and Technology.
Hoyeon is co-supervised by Wendy Flavell, and will focus on the role of morphology on energy dynamics in novel photovoltaic materials.
Congratulations to Bryce on submission of his PhD thesis!
Congratulations to Kun Peng, who submitted her PhD thesis today at the Australian National University. Her thesis, entitled “III-V Compound Semiconductor Nanowire Terahertz Detectors” has been completed under the supervision of Prof. Jagadish, Prof. Tan and Prof. Fu at the ANU and Patrick at the University of Manchester.
Well done Kun!
