Research Project: Nanostencil Lithography for Atomic-Scale Fabrication Scale-Up.
Supervisors: Dr. Taylor Stock (UCL), Prof. Neil Curson (UCL), Dr. Sarah Fearn (ICL)
Oisín graduated from Trinity College Dublin in 2023 with a B.A in Nanoscience, Physics and Chemistry of Advanced Materials. During his undergraduate, he completed a final year project in Dr Lewys Jones’ Ultramicroscopy group, where he studied the image distortion created by stray magnetic fields in electron microscopes. His PhD project looks at developing ultrahigh vacuum nanostenciling techniques compatible with a scanning tunnelling microscope. This is to help upscale the process of creating nano-scale electronic devices.
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.
