Design of Artificially Nano-structured Materials for Three-dimensional Electrodes and Catalysts (Advert Reference: FAC21/EE/MPEE/HODaniel)

Developing highly active, and low-cost electrocatalysts with superior durability for both the oxygen evolution reaction (OER) and hydrogen evolution reaction (HER) is a grand challenge to produce clean hydrogen through the electrolysis of water. Read more

Nano biomechanics

In recent years there has been a surge in interest in techniques to measure mechanical properties of living tissue and cells. Biomechanics, especially at the micro and nano-scales are an important aspect of cell and tissue biology as they play an important role in health and disease. Read more

Multipolar photon lasing in nano and micro structures

The invention of lasers has provided us with powerful sources of coherent light and a much enhanced ability to exploit the interaction of light and matter that have revolutionized science and technology. Read more

Single-molecule spectroscopy and super-resolution imaging of organic semiconductor materials

Organic semiconductors based on light-emitting conjugated polymers are attracting considerable interest in semiconductor physics and are emerging as exceptional 'plastic-like' materials for optoelectronic applications including displays, lasers and 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’. 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.
