Congratulations to group PhD student Ruqaiya Al-Abri for completing her PhD viva on "Correlative Optoelectronic Measurements for Optimization of Semiconductor Nanolasers". The examiners were Jack Alexander-Weber (University of Cambridge Physics) and David Binks.
Green LEDs remain low efficiency compared with their blue counterparts, but are required for future display technology. Power-dependent measurements show that current- rather than defect-management is crucial to improving efficiency.
The group have been awarded an InnovateUK grant as part of the ISCF “Commercialising Quantum Technologies” call. This 18month project led by Nanoco Technologies (Widnes) and David Binks (Manchester) will explore singly-doped quantum dots as a platform for quantum technologies. The project runs from August 2022 to January 2024. This
