The sound vibrations that make up music can make solar panels work harder, according to new research, and pop music performs bette
Written by Simon Levey Rows of aluminium studs help solar panels extract more energy from sunlight than those with flat surfaces.
Novel flexible, lightweight and low cost “plastic” electronics, including OLEDs and organic solar cells, rely on semiconducting...
The dynamic self-assembly of atoms and molecules into low-dimensional structures has been vigorously pursued for several decades:

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.


Jenny Nelson

Jenny has researched materials and device physics for applications in several novel types of solar cell at Imperial College since 1989. Her group’s current research focuses on photovoltaic energy conversion using molecular materials, characterisation of the charge transport, charge separation and morphology properties of molecular semiconductors, and the modelling of charge transport in organic semiconductors.

Andrew G. Green

Prof Green is interested in the equilibrium and out-of-equilibrium strongly correlated quantum systems. This encompasses fundamental properties of natural and manufactured materials, the effort to harness quantum mechanics for information processing, and the overlap of the latter with machine learning. He uses a range of tools, including analytical and numerical techniques drawn from quantum field theory and tensor networks.  

Organic and polymer light-emitting diodes (LEDs) have received much attention in recent years for application in displays and ligh
We are familiar with polymer materials in all aspects of our everyday lives - but in future, polymers are set to be important mate

Arash Mostofi

Materials lie at the heart of almost every modern technology and our research is dedicated to the application and development of theory and computational simulation tools for solving problems in materials. We develop and use methods at a wide range of length and time-scales, combining analytical theory, quantum mechanical first-principles simulations of interacting electrons and nuclei, atomistic simulations that use simpler models of interatomic bonding, coarse-grained molecular dynamics and Monte Carlo techniques.
