Potential summer scholars research projects
The Research School of Physics & Engineering performs research at the cutting edge of a wide range of disciplines.
By undertaking your own research project at RSPE you could open up an exciting career in science.
This project aims to develop GaN-based semiconductor photoelectrodes for highly efficient solar to hydrogen generation by band bending and surface engineering at the semiconductor-electrolyte interface.
Professor Hoe Tan, Dr Siva Karuturi
This is an all-encompassing program to integrate highly sophisticated theoretical modelling, material growth and nanofabrication capabilities to develop high performance semiconductor nanowire array solar cells. It will lead to understanding of the underlying photovoltaic mechanisms in nanowires and design of novel solar cell architectures.
A/Prof Lan Fu, Dr Ziyuan Li, Professor Chennupati Jagadish AC
In this project, we will characterise actual device solar cell structures with electron microscopy techniques and seek to understand the microscopic effects behind the device performance and reliability
A/Prof Jennifer Wong-Leung
In this project we will examine the forces generated in superconductoring magnetics, and scope the forces generated during a disruption.
