Ultrafast laser spectroscopy: using light to study materials on femtosecond timescales

   School of Science, Engineering and Environment

About the Project

This project will develop the scientific tools needed to understand the fundamental physical processes in next generation photonic materials and exploit those tools to advance our understanding of light-mater interactions in a range of semiconductor nanostructures, ranging from light harvesting photovoltaics to light-emitting diodes.

In this project the student will utilise state-of-the-art laser facilities to establish laser spectroscopic techniques, including time-resolved photoluminescence, transient absorption, and flash photolysis, to enable the study of the fundamental charge generation and transport processes in photonic materials over timescales ranging from nanoseconds to femtoseconds.

The student is expected to have a keen interest in experimental physics but hands-on experience in the use of lasers is not essential, as all training will be provided. For further information please contact Dr Marina Leontiadou.
