Felix Mildner

Imperial College London


Research Project: Discovery and Optimisation of High Efficiency Photocathode Materials
Supervisor: Nicholas Harrison (ICL)

Felix graduated from the University Heidelberg in 2019 with an BSc in Chemistry and from Imperial College London in 2020 with an MRes in Nanomaterials. During his masters project he investigated silver spill-over at electrified solid state interfaces in the context of Memristors using ab initio methods. For his PhD, Felix is working with Prof Nicholas Harrison at Imperial College to study the design principles of high efficiency photocathode materials using ab initio methods and the quantum mechanical modelling of photoemission processes. Novel photocathode materials are necessary for the operation of next generational light sources and free electron lasers (FELs).
