PhD in flexible perovskite photovoltaics

Do you want to be part of the coming solar revolution? This PhD is perfect for you!. Metal halide perovskites have emerged as a new class of semiconductor having important applications in next generation solar-cells. Read more

Near-field Optical Spectroscopy with Sub-Diffraction Spatial Resolution

  Research Group: Inorganic Semiconductors
Many processes occurring on the nano-scale are fundamental for functional light-sensitive and light-driven systems that we encounter and apply in nano-materials, optoelectronics and quantum nano-photonics, artificial photosynthesis, antimicrobial resistance and many other cutting-edge areas from quantum technologies to healthcare.

Strong light-matter interaction in van der Waals 2D materials: discovery of novel quantum states of the matter

  Research Group: Inorganic Semiconductors
The isolation of single-atomic layer graphene has led to a surge of interest in a large family of layered crystals with strong in-plane bonds and weak van der Waals interlayer coupling. Read more

Nano-magnetism in atomically thin 2D quantum materials and their heterostructures

  Research Group: Inorganic Semiconductors
Following the discovery of graphene, a large family of layered crystals has attracted significant attention. The properties of these materials range from superconductors and metals, to semiconductors and insulators. Read more

Van der Waals 2D materials: optical manifestations of the quantum physics of moiré superlattices

  Research Group: Inorganic Semiconductors
Atomically-thin layers of two-dimensional materials can be assembled in vertical stacks (called ‘heterostructures’), which are held together by relatively weak van der Waals forces, allowing for coupling between monolayer crystals with incommensurate lattices and arbitrary mutual rotation, or ‘twist’.

Sub-wavelength all-dielectric nano-photonics with 2D materials

  Research Group: Inorganic Semiconductors
So far nano-photonics has dealt with dielectric devices relying on confining light in diffraction-limited volumes. Beating the diffraction limit by confining light on sub-wavelength scales has been only possible with plasmonic structures made of nano-structured metal, which unavoidably suffer from large optical losses.

Nanotribological properties of organic surfaces

Friction is ubiquitous in all sliding contacts. Much energy is dissipated in sliding contacts, and the minimisation of friction can make a significant contribution to the efficient use of fuels. Read more

Surface analysis of layered polymer brushes

One of the most exciting new features on our recently installed state-of-the-art XPS spectrometer is the capacity for depth-profiling of delicate organic polymeric materials. Read more
