Welcome to the OMS research group at the University of Manchester.
We study the origin and role of inhomogeneity in novel optoelectronic materials using a variety of experimental methods; how variations in materials at the nanoscale determine device performance for applications including photovolatics, display materials and photosensors. Our current research is spans four primary themes:
- High-throughput semiconductor nano-optoelectronics methodology – why and how we should measure statistically meaningful datasets to reveal yield and correlations
- Novel optoelectronic materials for photonic device applications – using correlative approaches to understand energy dynamics in emerging materials platforms (2D, perovskite, self-assembled, molecular and confined)
- Ultrafast and single photon optical techniques – studying energy dynamics on their natural length and timescales using single photon events
- Holistic data analysis – using correlated measurements to produce a reproducible and self-consistent model of device performance
We welcome interest from anyone who wants to join the group for MPhys, PhD or postdoctoral research.
