New Grant – EPSRC Impact Accelerator with Kubos Semi

The group has been awarded a 1-year “impact accelerator” grant with Kubos Semi, to fund a 6 month secondment of group PDRA Stephen Church. In this project, Stephen will translate our high-throughput methodology towards in-line optimization of emerging semiconductor materials.

Kubos develop cubic-phase GaN which can be grown on large diameter silicon carbide-on-silicon substrates for scale up of high-efficiency LEDs, and emission across the spectrum.

The project runs from October 2022-September 2023.

EPSRC-funded PhD position now available

A fully funded EPSRC studentship (DTP) will be available in the group for a September 2021 start. This studentship is associated with the “Big-data for nano-electronics” project, and is open to UK-based applicants (EU applicants living in the UK may also be eligible for some support).

The project will develop a framework for producing and analysing high-throughput imaging and spectroscopy data for inhomogeneous nano-electronic devices, and will include both experimental and computational work.

In particular, students with a good first degree or MSc in physics, electronic materials, nanotechnology or photonics are encouraged to apply.
