Explore the fascinating world of colour, light & electrochemistry through the lens of physics and chemistry!
Light helps us see, but did you know we can also use light to communicate? Dr. Joseph Cameron will illuminate the fascinating research he and his group are doing to make and test materials for visible light communications (LiFi as opposed to WiFi), organic lasers, organic light emitting diodes (OLED), and photovoltaics.
You Ain't Ready for this Electric Jelly
Jacquelyn Egan (PhD Student)
Many electronics are currently being made using precious metals, but these are dwindling resources and the continued mining of them is not sustainable. Jacquelyn Egan's work involves the design of a potential organic alternative that can be dissolved in an environmentally friendly solution like water. Are you ready?
Electrochromic Smart Windows: Changing Colour with Structure
Rebecca Randle (PhD Student)
Smart Windows allow significant energy-saving benefits for a greener workplace. Final year PhD student Rebecca Randle will explain how she is designing new ways to create smart window surfaces in the lab.
