The annual SET for Britain event showcases work by early-career researchers in science, engineering and technology, bringing the latest research to an audience of MPs.
This year, NanoPhotonics PhD student Laura Brooks was selected from applicants across the country to present her work at the exhibition.
Laura's research explores how deformable polymers and metallic nanostructures can be combined to make switchable and responsive 'smart' photonic materials.
Our special congratulations go to Cambridge student Roxanne Middleton, from the Vignolini Group for Bioinspired Photonics, who won the Silver Award for her fascinating research into the iridescent colouration of pollia berries. To find out more, see: http://www.ch.cam.ac.uk/group/vignolini/
