John Morton

Prof Morton's research takes spins of electrons and nuclei in a range of nano-scale materials and devices to develop a new generation of quantum technologies, including quantum sensors, quantum memories, and quantum computers. Prof Morton is the Director of the UCL Quantum Science and Technology Institute.


Organic and polymer light-emitting diodes (LEDs) have received much attention in recent years for application in displays and ligh

Chin-Pang Liu

Dr Liu's research interests are focused on i) Design, fabrication and characterisation of advanced photonic devices, in particular, the Asymmetric Fabry-Perot modulator (AFPM) which can be used as both a light intensity modulator and a photodetector in a single device. ii) Radio-over-fibre systems and techniques. Novel and low-cost transmission techniques for wireless multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) signal over fibre. iii) Microwave Photonics. High-speed photonic sampling techniques.

Jason Riley

Professor Riley’s research activity concerns the preparation, characterisation and applications of nanomaterials. Colloid chemistry, anodization and templated deposition are employed to obtain materials of defined dimension. The as-prepared particles are characterised and then deposited on substrates to yield surface coatings with well defined architecture. The electrochemistry and photoelectrochemistry of electrodes modified using such techniques are investigated.

Martyn McLachlan

Dr McLachlan's research is the synthesis of three dimensionally periodic macroporous solids, specifically a class of materials referred to as synthetic opals. These materials posses a periodic arrangement of pores on a length scale which can be controllably altered from tens to hundreds of nanometres.
