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.
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
Two of the group gave oral presentations at CMD29 in Manchester. Group PhD student Hoyeon Choi reported his work on the “Impact of Microstructure of Crystallinity driven singlet fission efficiency in diF-TES-ADT“, a collaboration between Jenny Clark (Sheffield) our our group. Group PDRA Stephen Church reported his work on “Disentangling
Group PDRA Stephen Church presented his work on nanolaser characterization at APC22 in Maastricht. He described our high-throughput methodology to understand the relative contributions of gain, end facet and cavity for photonic integrated application.
Group postdoc Stephen Church presented a talk entitled “Disentangling Gain, Distributed Losses and End-Facet Losses in Freestanding Nanowire Lasers using Automated High-Throughput Micro-Spectroscopy” at UK Semiconductors in Sheffield, UK. This collaborative work between Manchester and colleagues in Zhejiang and University College London reported a multimodal correlative approach to studying nanolasers.
Group postdoc Stephen Church and PhD student Ruqaiya Al-Abri collaborated with Dhruv Saxena at Imperial College London to produce a review of methods to characterise nanowire lasers. This article, forming part of a celebration issue for the birthday of colleague Prof. Chennupati Jagadish (at the Australian National University) seeks to
