Congratulations to Dr Camille Blayo who became the 6th PhD student to graduate from the group and the last one to graduate from Trinity College Dublin. The sun was shining and Camille had a great day celebrating!
We welcome back Oliver Nelson-Dunnett who will spend some time with us over the summer continuing his work on energy transfer in microporous polymers (PIMs).
Rachel was Co-Chair (with Prof. Alberto Credi) of the inaugural UK-Italy Photochemistry meeting jointly hosted by the RSC Photophysics & Photochemistry Group (PPG) and the Gruppo Italiano di Fotochimica (GIF) (http://www.fotochimica.org). The meeting took place on the beautiful islands of Lipari, one of the Aeolian islands, and attracted over 80 participants. Rachel attended the meeting, … Continue reading UK-IT Photochemistry Meeting, Lipari (Italy), 24-26th June 2019
Congratulations to Kieran Richards who won second place in the Department’s postgraduate poster symposium. Well done Kieran! Kieran’s poster describes his work on the development of photoresponsive nanoparticles as Pickering emulsion stabilisers.
Congratulations to Oliver Nelson-Dunnett and Alex Zanre who carried out their Part III projects in the group – they both obtained First class honours in their final degrees! Well done both!
Rachel gave an invited talk at the CPE annual meeting in Imperial College London on the 10-11th June 2019 (https://www.imperial.ac.uk/news/191852/cpe-annual-symposium-2019/).
Tom Parton has one first prize in the Science in Innovation Unit (SIU) art in Science Oxford photo competition. Well done Tom! Legend: The intense colours seen in this micrograph are created by cellulose nanocrystals, tiny slivers of carbohydrate extracted from cotton. Each individual nanocrystal is only 200 nanometres long; too small to be seen … Continue reading Congratulations to Tom Parton – another image prize to add to the collection!
We have a 2 year PDRA vacancy in Polymer Materials available. Please see the opportunities page for further information.
Congratulations to PhD student Tom Parton who has one a prize in the CU NanoSoc photo competition. Tom's beautiful image can be seen below! © Thomas Parton (@ThatGladPerson) Order and disorder. The intense colours in the photo are created by cellulose nanocrystals, which self-assembly into a chiral nematic liquid crystal structure. We believe the “tendrils” … Continue reading Tom Parton wins a prize in the CU NanoSoc Photo Competition
Two ERC-funded PhD studentships are available in the Photoactive Materials group at the University of Cambridge under the supervision of Dr Rachel Evans for an October 2019 start. Due to funding restriction these studentships are available to "home fees" students only. Please see the "Opportunities" page for further information
