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.
Patrick was external examiner for Zizhuo Liu, a PhD candidate in Prof. Huiyun Liu‘s group at University College London. Zizhuo defended his thesis entitled “High-performance III-V Quantum structures and devices grown on Si substrates”.
A new collaborative paper led by Giorgos Boros and the team of Xuezhe Yu and Huiyun Liu at University College London has been published in J Phys Chem C. In this work, Giorgos reported the development of high quality ternary nanowires (AlGaAs) grown via MBE. While the AlGaAs/GaAs heterostructure
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
We have uploaded a new paper on quantum-dot-in-nanowire structures to the arXiv. Working with colleagues at University College London, the University of Warwick, the University of Sheffield and the University of Copenhagen, this work demonstrates the growth of high-quality GaAs quantum dot inclusions in a GaAsP nanowire, with evidence for
Group PhD student Stefan Skalsky gave a talk at the UK Semiconductors meeting in Sheffield. His talk, on “Nanosecond lasing and mm-scale optical coherence length in GaAsP/GaAs Quantum-Well Nanowire Lasers” descibed his recent work using interferometric time-resolved spectroscopy to reveal the end-facet reflectivity in nanowire lasers.
A new paper has been accepted for publication in ACS Nano. This work, led by Dr. Yunyan Zhang and Prof. Huiyun Liu at University College London, describes the growth and characterisation of quantum-well tube nanowires based on GaAs-GaAsP heterostructures. This work brings together partners from UCL, Sheffield, Warwick, Lund (Sweden)
