Success at the SET for Britain – Silver for NanoPhotonics member

last modified Jun 06, 2014 01:34 PM

One of our PhD students, Jan Mertens, won the second prize in the national poster competition SET for Britain. He presented his research to a number of politicians and expert judges on Monday 17 March in the House of Commons. Judging took place against 29 other shortlisted researchers` work based on criteria such as outstanding quality of research, significant contributions to the knowledge and the specific field, and enthusiasm of the presenter.

SET for Britain aims for bringing early-stage researchers into contact with members of Parliament so that politicians get to know more about the research that is currently going on in the UK.

The research Jan presented has been published in Nano Letters. The silver winning poster has the title: “Graphene Controls Colour of Plasmonic Nanoantennas”.
