Developing new concepts and novel optical devices
Dr X Chen
8 February 2019
The candidate will explore the novel optical properties of various nanostructures based on metals (e.g., gold and silver) and dielectrics (e.g., amorphous silicon, titanium dioxide).
Analysis and Treatment of Orthopaedic Pin Site Infections
Dr J McEvoy
Applications accepted all year round
Pin site infections are a major complication of external fixation of fractures, and bacterial biofilms are known to form on the pin surface.1 This project, in collaboration with Dr Shobana Dissanayeke (RHUL) and St Peter’s Hospital, Chertsey, will investigate bacterial biofilms that have been obtained from percutaneous pins used in orthopaedic fixation frames.
