Lily Shepherd and Rachel Clarke join the group as 4th year MPhys students. They will be working on developing fast techniques for looking at homogeneity in photovoltaic cells, extending the work done over the summer by Edoardo Altamura.
The group will host another 10-week summer studentship, funded through the Rank Prize Funds. The project on “Rapid, multispectral photovoltaic performance mapping using structured light illumination” will see one of our 3rd year undergraduate students Edoardo Altamura design, build and test a device for high speed characterisation. We look forward
Patrick spoke at the Manchester Pint of Science event at Terrace NQ. Linking the first photograph to nuclear bombs, the Matrix movie and helicopters that appear not to move, he described the use of picosecond “movie-making” to understand energy processes in photosynthesis and nanolasers.
The group welcome two MPhys project students, Pawita and Cosimo, to the group. Over this semester, they will be working on developing a compressive-sensing approach to large area photocurrent mapping for novel photovoltaics.
