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.
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.
For further details, please contact Patrick. Applications must be made via the University site.
The group has been awarded funds to purchase a new ultrafast laser facility for the Photon Science Institute through an EPSRC Core Equipment Award (EP/V036343/1). This grant will be used to replace the aging Coherent RegA system with a turn-key highly tunable ultrafast laser system with optical parametric amplifier – details to follow!
