  • 09Feb

    Prof Stefan Kaskel 

    Technical University Dresden, Inorganic Chemistry Department, Bergstr. 66, 01062 Dresden, Germany

  • 31Jan

    Sen Zhang

    25 minute talks + 5 minutes of questions

  • 24Jan

    Prof John Rogers, Simpson/Querrey Professor of Materials Science and Engineering, Biomedical Engineering and Medicine at Northwestern University, USA

    Biology is soft, curvilinear and transient; conventional semiconductor technologies are hard, planar and everlasting. Development of electronic and optoelectronic systems that eliminate this profound mismatch in properties will establish foundations for devices that can intimately integrate with the body, to provided unique, important modes of operation with relevance in biomedical research and clinical healthcare. Over the last decade, a convergence of new concepts in materials science, electrical engineering and advanced manufacturing has led to the emergence of diverse, novel classes of 'biocompatible' electronic platforms. This talk describes the key ideas, with examples ranging from wireless, skin-like electronic 'tattoos' for continuous monitoring of physiological health, to bioresorbable nerve stimulators for accelerated neuroregeneration.

  • 22Jan

    Dr Wenzhuo Wu, School of Industrial Engineering, Purdue University, West Lafayette, Indiana 47907, USA.

    In this talk, he will discuss his recent progress in developing self-powered human-integrated nanodevices through the hybrid nanomanufacturing of heterostructured nanodevices. This new class of wearable devices are conformable to human skins and can sustainably perform self-powered, non- invasive functions, e.g., physiological monitoring and gesture recognition, by harvesting the operation power from the human body. This research is expected to have a positive impact and immediate relevance to many societally pervasive areas, e.g., biomedical monitoring, consumer electronics, and intelligent robotics.

  • 17Jan

    Massimo Ghidini

    25 minute talks + 5 minutes of questions 

  • 15Dec

    Prof Mark Blamire would like to invite you all to the Departmental Meeting on Friday 15th December 2017 at 10am, in Goldsmiths’ Lecture Theatre 1. This is a meeting aimed primarily at Assistant and Support Staff. Dr Rachel Evans will give a presentation about her research.  Please come along and hear about the highlights of the year. 

  • 14Dec

    Dr Amir Shirzadi, Visiting Research Scientist in Rolls Royce UTC and Senior Lecturer at The Open University. 

    The presentation will outline the new joining methods developed by Dr Amir Shirzadi and their applications in jet engines, satellite systems, electric cars and nuclear power-plants sectors. Exemplary components will be available for viewing

  • 12Dec

    Tickets cost £10 (this is a subsidised price thanks to many Department research groups) and will be available from the Servery. The number will be capped at 90, so it's advisable to buy early. Please retain the ticket - not only to get in, but also because purchase gives free entry to the Xmas raffle (which will be based on the ticket number).

    Music provided by Steve Watts (DJ) and Garance with her Jazz band, buffet meal, cash bar. Guests welcome.

  • 06Dec

    Speaker: Bhasi Nair. All welcome.

    Starting: 1.15pm (25 mins + 5 mins questions)

  • 29Nov

    Seminar by Professor E. Towe, Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, PA 15213

    Abstract: Synthesis of semiconductor thin films by molecular beam epitaxy has enabled the creation of artificial heterostructures with unique engineered properties for fundamental investigations as well as practical applications in electronic and photonic devices.  This presentation will discuss use of liquid-metal-enabled molecular beam epitaxy for III-nitride compound semiconductor films; we illustrate how this semiconductor alloy system can be used as a vehicle for illustrating basic concepts in practical quantum nanostructure engineering.  We then discuss a new class of two-dimensional semiconductors¾the transition-metal dichalcogenides¾that potentially offer new paradigms for device architectures.  Finally, we give examples of how semiconductor nanostructures are transitioned into practical technologies.

    All welcome.
