Patrick gave an invited talk at Nanowire Week 2023, at Georgia Tech in Atlanta Georgia. This event brought together over 100 academics and researchers from around the world to discuss the major findings and future direction for the nanowire field, spanning sensing, photovoltaics, microscopy, lasing and more.
Nano-materials are hard to precisely manufacture. By measuring >10k, we use their disorder to understand their performance in a paper in Small.
Group postdoc Stephen Church has just had a paper accepted into Advanced Optical Materials. In this work, he reports the study of thousands of individual nanowire lasers, using advanced statistical methods to identify a route to optimization. Photonic integrated circuitry is rapidly emerging as an alternative to electronics for specialist
Group postdoc Stephen Church was awarded the “best early-career-researcher” presentation prize at the Rank Prize Symposium meeting in Grasmere. The meeting Nanowire Photonics was chaired by Prof. Martin Dawson (Strathclyde), Prof. Hannah Joyce (Cambridge) and Prof. Michael Johnston (Oxford). Congratulations to Stephen!
Group postdoc Stephen Church has submitted his most recent work to the arXiv preprint server. In this new work, Stephen carried out optical, microscopic, and electron micrograph characterization of over 5000 nanowire lasers. By correlating geometry effects which affect the nanolaser cavity, and material quality that affect gain material, we
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.
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
Optoelectronic materials form the building blocks of crucial components of modern technology, including solar cells, CCDs, lasers and LEDs. The past decade has seen significant developments in materials science that enable the shrinking of these materials to the nano-scale. These advancements have also created entirely new technologies based around light
Group members Dr Stephen Church and Nikesh Patel have presented their work at the 2022 Nanowire Week meeting in Chamonix, France. Stephen gave an oral presentation on his recent research on “Nanowire facet reflectivity and lasing performance using high-throughput interferometry“. Nikesh presented a poster on his work on “High Intra-
The group will again offer an 8-week paid summer internship to work on developing a cloud-based solution for high-throughput data management. This position is only available to current University of Manchester students in their penultimate year of study. The role will sit alongside PhD and postdoctoral staff in the group,
