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’.

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.

EPSRC CDT in Compound Semiconductor Manufacturing

This new EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training provides fully funded PhD studentships and comprehensive training in Compound Semiconductor Manufacturing. Read more

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

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.

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

Novel synthesis & characterisation methods for metal-organic nanosheets

Nanomaterials are set to revolutionise every aspect of our lives from electronics to medicine. The remarkable properties shown by graphene have led to the development of a wide variety of other two-dimensional materials. Read more

Live Plants Imaging: investigating signalling and response mechanisms

To achieve food security, we can improve the efficiency of food production while reducing the use and cost of pesticides. To tackle both challenges, efficiency and cost, we propose to select crop varieties that are more resilient against pests and diseases. Read more

Quantum Control: shaping light to enhance chemistry

By modulating the light with which you excite materials we can enhance specific electronic, nuclear and even chemical reactions! The goal is therefore to set up a MIIPS pulse shaper and to adapt it to our Helios transient absorption system.. Read more

Toward Artificial Photosynthesis: understanding how porphyrin’s structure and environment influence the early electronic and nuclear dynamics

The Sun represents an unlimited source of energy that can be harvested and ultimately converted to electricity. Solar energy is therefore the solution to not only depart from fossil fuels, but also to respond to the ever-increasing energy needs of our society. Read more
