Iain BurnsIain Burns has been awarded a Bernard Lewis Fellowship.

Every two years, the Combustion Institute awards a Bernard Lewis Fellowship to up to five young researchers from an extremely strong worldwide field of nominees. The Fellowship will provide full financial support for Iain to attend the 31st International Symposium on Combustion to be held August 6 - 11, 2006 in Heidelberg, Germany, where he will present a paper.

Iain completed his PhD earlier this year in this Department on the subject of A sensor for combustion thermometry based on blue diode lasers, and is currently a Research Fellow of St John's College. He continues to work within the Laser Analytics Group on projects related to diode laser sensing.

The leader of the Laser Analytics Group Dr Clemens Kaminski said, "Congratulations on a most outstanding achievement, one of the highest for a researcher at your career stage."

A new world (dis)order for efficient semiconductors

11 November 2019

Scientists from our Optoelectronic Materials and Device Spectroscopy group investigating perovskite materials for next generation solar cells and flexible LEDs have discovered that they can be more efficient when their chemical compositions are less ordered, vastly simplifying production processes and lowering cost.

The topology of disordered 3D graphenes: Rosalind Franklin’s pre-DNA problem untangled

8 November 2019

Researchers from our Computational Modelling group have published a possible solution to why disordered carbon structures are reluctant to turn into graphite, a puzzle that perplexed Rosalind Franklin before her discovery of the structure of DNA.

September paper of the month: flexible production of micro and nanofluidic devices

22 October 2019

Researchers from our Laser Analytics group have developed a laser-based manufacturing process that can produce combined nanofluidic and microfluidic devices in a fast and scalable manner.
