A tour around our laboratories
Microcavity spectroscopy system, used to measure
the reflectivity and photoluminescence emission of organic-semiconductor
micocavities and other photonic structures as a function of angle and
also temperature (room-temperature to liquid nitrogen).
The device fabrication laboratory.
Our glove-box in the North-Campus Nanoscience clean room.
This system is linked to a Kurt Leskar evaporator system and is used
for fabrication and encapsulation of OPVs and OLEDs.
The I22 beam line at the Diamond Light Source in Oxfordshire. We regularly access synchrotron facilities to study
semiconductor thin films using grading incidence X-ray scattering techniques
Our newly renovated clean-room, containing an Angstrom Engineering glove-box deposition system
Preparation of perovskite PV devices in our dedicated cleanroom.
Thin-film deposition of new materials is typically investigated first by use of a spin coater
Spray-casting is a scalable technique. Less wasteful than spin-casting.
Already routinely used in manufacture (e.g. automotive, graphic arts etc)
Our solar simulator and quantum efficiency testing station used in the evaluation of organic photovoltaic devices.
