Imperial College London
Research Project: Engineering Metal Halide Perovskites for Filterless Photodetectors
Supervisors: Martyn McLachlan (ICL), Nicola Gasparini (ICL)
Edoardo graduated from Imperial College London with a MEng in Materials Science and Engineering. He is now part of the Nanotechnology and Nanoscale Characterisation group, working under the supervision of Prof. Martyn McLachlan and Dr. Nicola Gasparini. His research will focus on photodetectors; devices which see layers of different semiconducting materials sandwiched between two electrodes in order to detect light. Such devices can detect different ranges of the electromagnetic spectrum by changing the active layer semiconductor, making them suitable for a plethora of applications. In particular, Edoardo will be looking at perovskite photodetectors, and how each thin film layer can be optimized and engineered to deliver the best performances for the different applications.
I really enjoyed my time as a member of the CDT-ACM. It provided the opportunity to gain experience with a wide range of materials characterisation techniques and to engage with the wider research community by participating in conferences and Outreach events.
