Alice Merryweather (c2018) is the lead author on a paper published in the journal Nature, reporting an a new optical technique called interferometric scattering microscopy (iScat) that allows looking inside lithium-ion batteries and follow lithium ions moving in real time as the batteries charge and discharge, something which has not been possible until now. This […]

On 27 and 28 May 2021, the NanoDTC hosted a sustainability themed podcast workshop for students for students from Colombian Universities and Cambridge. The workshop organisation was led by Ryan Greenhalgh (c2017) and Dr James Dolan. Speakers included Dr Mauricio Diazgranados, a Colombian Biodiversity expert based at Kew Gardens, Prof. Julian Allwood, Professor of Engineering […]

To mark the Cambridge Festival, Taylor Uekert (c2016) brings us The Great Escape of Ellie the Electron, a children’s book exploring photocatalysis on the nanoscale. We’re extremely proud of Taylor’s work, making nanoscience accessible to a younger audience – and hopefully inspiring future generations of NanoDTC students! What does photocatalysis look like on the nanoscale? […]

Taylor Uekert (c2016) and co-authors highlight key steps for taking a solar waste-to-hydrogen technology from the lab to the real world. With 70% of global municipal solid waste lost to landfills or the environment each year, methods for managing and reclaiming the value in waste are urgently needed. One potential option is photoreforming: a simple, […]

Electronic states with high amounts of spin are central to the understanding of novel physical phenomena such as energy collection in organic photovoltaics and unconventional high-spin superconductivity. Identifying arrangement of spins is also paramount for the accurate readout of quantum information stored in silicon quantum dots—‘artificial atoms’ where electrons can be collected on-demand—which are particularly […]

Jean de la Verpilliere and Alex Groombridge have been listed in the Forbes 30 under 30 in Europe. Jean de la Verpilliere and Alex Groombridge have been listed in the Forbes 30 under 30 in Europe for their improvements of lithium-ion batteries which they hope to commercialise. Their aim is to make the batteries recharge […]

Demelza Wright and Taylor Uekert, both cohort 2016 students, have featured in the Inspirational Scientist Video series put together by Cambridge University Press Education. This series is aimed at inspire the next generation to become scientists to enable a better and brighter future for all of us. See their stories here:
