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.

New Grant – InnovateUK Commercialising Quantum Technologies

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 project will recruit one postdoctoral researcher to work on high-throughput single-dot spectroscopy, to be advertised soon.
