Group postdoc Stephen Church presented a talk at EUROMAT23, in Munich, Germany. His talk, on "Understanding Nanowire Laser Performance - Insights from Experimental Big-Data" drew together material from collaborators spanning Australia, London, Jena, and Cambridge. By applying a modular experiment with high-throughput capability he showed that some findings - such
Group PDRA Stephen Church gave a public talk on our research at the annual Pint of Science Festival. He spoke to a paying audience at The English Lounge about automation, disorder, and the benefits of nano-scale lasers for the world.
Nano-materials are hard to precisely manufacture. By measuring >10k, we use their disorder to understand their performance in a paper in Small.
Group postdoc Stephen Church has given an outreach talk at the University of Salford. This talk was delivered to undergraduate students, and covered the scientific and industrial spectroscopy work in our group.
Group PhD student Nikesh Patel has just had his first paper accepted in ACS Applied Materials and Interfaces. His study uses a new methodology to understand how quantum "shells" - less than 10nm thick - vary both within single nanowires, and between them. By using automated high-throughput approaches on over
Group postdoc Stephen Church has just had a paper accepted into Advanced Optical Materials. In this work, he reports the study of thousands of individual nanowire lasers, using advanced statistical methods to identify a route to optimization. Photonic integrated circuitry is rapidly emerging as an alternative to electronics for specialist
Group postdoc Stephen Church was awarded the “best early-career-researcher” presentation prize at the Rank Prize Symposium meeting in Grasmere. The meeting Nanowire Photonics was chaired by Prof. Martin Dawson (Strathclyde), Prof. Hannah Joyce (Cambridge) and Prof. Michael Johnston (Oxford). Congratulations to Stephen!
The group was well represented at the Rank Prize symposium in Grasmere. The high-throughput and automation session included invited talks from Patrick, Stephen Church and Ruqaiya Al-Abri.
Group postdoc Stephen Church has submitted his most recent work to the arXiv preprint server. In this new work, Stephen carried out optical, microscopic, and electron micrograph characterization of over 5000 nanowire lasers. By correlating geometry effects which affect the nanolaser cavity, and material quality that affect gain material, we
Patrick and Stephen traveled to Cardiff University to meet Kubos representatives as part of the Impact Accelerator Kick-off meeting. Stephen will spend half of his time developing our spectroscopy tools to support novel materials develop over the next 12 month as part of a secondment to Kubos.
