Patrick and colleague Jessica Boland have received short-term pump-prime funding to combine single-photon spectroscopy with scattering-type near-field microscopy. The project, running from February to June will employ one postdoc for a proof-of-principle system.
The group welcomes back our returning MPhys students who will continue on their projects this semester. This includes: Big-data for nano-electronics – development of machine-learning tools for analysis of imaging and spectroscopic data for nanotechnology Rafe Whitehead, Thomas Blackmore, Jonathan Ryding Earth’s-field NMR – design and construction of an NMR system
The group welcomes a bumper set of new MPhys (Masters project) students on a range of projects. Welcome to all students! Big-data for nano-electronics – development of machine-learning tools for analysis of imaging and spectroscopic data for nanotechnology Rafe Whitehead, Thomas Blackmore, Omar Ahmed, Jonathan Ryding Earth’s-field NMR – design and
Congratulations to lab member Stefan Skalsky, who submitted his PhD thesis today. He work, entitled “Interferometric Time-correlated Single Photon Counting for Nano-optoelectronic Characterisation” covers his research on the i-TCSPC tool.
A new paper has been published in Optics Express, led by collaborator Xiaoming Yuan at Central South University (Changsha) and growth colleagues in the group of Prof. Jagadish at Australian National University. In this work, novel “twinning-superlattice” nanowires are grown. Once passivated, this growth method produces extremely high quality nanowires,
Group student Hoyeon has had a paper accepted in the RSC Journal of Materials Chemistry C, studying the photo-brightening effect in perovskite grains using correlated optical and chemical mapping. In collaboration with the Flavell group and the NanoSIMS group at Manchester, this study linked luminescence lifetime and emission energies to
Group PhD student Hoyeon Choi has had a conference proceedings accepted for SPIE Europe 2020. As this conference has been cancelled, his talk is available throught the SPIE Digital Form. In his work, Hoyeon describes the application of confocal and time-resolved spectral mapping to study and understand photobrightening and degradation
Group PhD student Stefan Skalsky’s paper on semiconductor nanowire lasing has just been published in Light: Science and Applications. In this new work, Stefan used his newly developed Interferometric Time-Correlated Single Photon Counting system (i-TCSPC) to measure the coherence length of laser emission from nanowires grown by the Liu
