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.
Nanoscience and Nanotechnology
Semiconductor nanowires are emerging nano-materials with substantial opportunities for novel photonic and electronic device applications. This project aims at developing a new generation of high performance NW based photodetectors for a wide range of applications.

Auger electrons are emitted after nuclear decay and are used for medical purposes. The number of Auger electrons generated per nuclear decay is not known accurately, a fact that hinders medical applications. This project aims to obtain a experimental estimate of the number of Auger electrons emitted per nuclear decay.
A/Prof Maarten Vos, Dr Tibor Kibedi, Professor Andrew Stuchbery
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.
