Soft Nanophotonics

The Soft NanoPhotonics Collaboration started in October 2009, and brings together a number of interdisciplinary research groups in a new collaboration to create soft nanostructured materials with unusual and exploitable optical properties.

 

Academic Groups involved:

NanoPhotonics Centre (Phys)
Prof. Jeremy J. Baumberg
Thin Films/Interfaces (BSS) Prof. Ulli Steiner
Melville Polymers (Chem) Dr. Oren Scherman
Polymer Fluids (Chem Eng) Prof. Malcolm Mackley
Carbon Electronics (CAPE) Dr. Stephan Hofmann

 

This £5M collaboration is funded by the UK EPSRC, as well as a diverse array of other partners involved with our research.

We are currently recruiting for PhD and PDRA positions in all these areas:

Physics

Chemistry

Electrochemistry

Photonics

Polymers

Please contact J.J. Baumberg for more information
