Electronic and Photonic Materials

Organisational unit: Research Theme

Organisation profile

Research into electronic and photonic materials – the building blocks of devices that exploit light and/or electric charge – promises to deliver cheaper, faster devices for information and communication technologies, inexpensive sensors to revolutionise healthcare and new methods of harvesting renewable energy.

This fast-moving and exciting research field focuses on new materials such as wide band-gap semiconductors and unconventional superconductors, with structure and composition controlled on the micron- and submicron-length scale.
