Trinity College Dublin
Research Project: Using ultrathin oxides to alter and control material properties
Supervisors: Igor Shvets (TCD) and Martyn A. McLachlan (ICL)
Peter graduated from Trinity College Dublin with a BA in Nanoscience, Physics and Chemistry of Advanced Materials. He is now working in the Applied Physics Group in TCD under the supervision of Prof. Igor Shvets. His research will focus on the effect of interlacing ultrathin oxide layers with transparent conducting oxides, the origin of this effect, and how one can use this to alter material properties. This will primarily involve the use of TEM and XPS techniques to characterise the materials.
