Advanced electrocatalysts for sustainable energy technologies

12:00 - 13:00 12 October 2022

Join us for this PSI seminar with guest speaker Dr. Laurie King. The annual production of hydrogen is over 70 million tons, with > 96% generated from fossil fuels (mostly by steam methane reformation of natural gas) releasing large quantities of CO2 as a by-product. Electrochemical and photoelectrochemical water splitting technologies offer an...

Training Course on In situ experiments and Digital Volume Correlation

12 - 13 October 2022

Digital Volume Correlation (DVC) is a powerful experimental technique that computes 3D full-field displacement and strain maps from volumes images acquired during a deformation process of a material. DVC is the 3D extension of Digital Image Correlation (DIC) which was first described four decades ago. The emergence of DVC started early 2000s with...

Molten membranes and solid sorbents for next-generation carbon dioxide separation

12:00 - 13:00 26 October 2022

Join us for this PSI seminar with guest speaker Dr Greg A. Mutch. Chemical separation processes account for 10 – 15% of global energy consumption and 40 – 90% of capital and operating costs in industry. However, their importance is often overlooked and underappreciated. Carbon dioxide capture is a prime example; separation from point sources...

Training Course on Visualisation & quantification of tomographic datasets

07 - 08 November 2022

A 2 day training course covering theory and computer-based practical works using the Thermo Scientific™ Amira-Avizo Software. Lab/synchrotron X-ray tomography has emerged as one of the most important techniques for research in a wide range of applications including healthcare, energy, food and geology. Advances in the quality of X-ray beams,...

Near-Infrared Colloidal Quantum Dots Lasers

12:00 - 13:00 09 November 2022

Join us for this PSI seminar with guest speaker Dr. Guy Whitworth. Solution-processed semiconductor lasers have achieved much success across the nanomaterial research community. The ease of integration with other photonic components and the potential for upscaling using emerging large-area fabrication technologies (such as roll-to-roll) make these...

Training Course on In situ experiments and Digital Volume Correlation

05 - 06 December 2022

Digital Volume Correlation (DVC) is a powerful experimental technique that computes 3D full-field displacement and strain maps from volumes images acquired during a deformation process of a material. DVC is the 3D extension of Digital Image Correlation (DIC) which was first described four decades ago. The emergence of DVC started early 2000s with...

Atomistic and multi-scale simulations of (In,Ga)N heterostructures: Insights into carrier transport, radiative, non-radiative recombination properties

12:00 - 13:00 07 December 2022

Join us for this PSI seminar with guest speaker Dr Stefan Schulz. Semiconductor nanostructures utilizing indium gallium nitride ((In,Ga)N) alloys have attracted considerable research interest due to their potential for optoelectronic device applications but also recently as sources for non-classical light emission. However, and in comparison to...
