Notedev Final Network Meeting, 2017

posted 15 May 2017, 07:05 by Jennifer King   [ updated 15 May 2017, 07:34 ]

The Notedev Network gathered for a final meeting that was hosted by our partner in Reykjavik - the University of Iceland. The meeting was an opportunity for the Notedev Supervisory Board to assess progress and finalise plans for the remaining few months of the project.  The ESRs gave substantial presentations that provided evidence of both their scientific and presentational skills development.

A competition to promote outreach by the ESRs was held during the meeting and everyone enjoyed watching and reading the contributions, which will be uploaded to the website shortly.

Notedev Research Paper Showcased by APL

posted 13 Oct 2015, 04:31 by Jennifer King

The journal 'Applied Physics Letters' has recently showcased a "must-read" selection of papers chosen by their associate editor Alessandro Tredicucci, an expert in Terahertz devices.  A paper by ESR Daniele Palaferii et al, from Universite Paris Diderot, has been included in this list. This paper presents the first antenna-coupled microcavity detector in the THz range and shows the improved photon coupling in terms of enhanced responsivity and detectivity of a quantum well photodetector.

The Notedev network met at the International Meeting on Materials for Electronic Applications in September 2015.  The Fellows presented their research at a Terahertz session. An associated two-day workshop covered both scientific and general training. The Fellows participated in an outreach session with local University students and talked about their education and careers as scientists.

Training Course - The Collaborative and Effective Researcher

posted 13 Oct 2015, 04:14 by Jennifer King   [ updated 13 Oct 2015, 04:33 ]

The Notedev Fellows attended a workshop in Durham, UK in November 2014.  This workshop was run by Hutchinson Training in conjunction with the award-winning Centre for Academic and Researcher Development, CARD, at Durham University.

The training course was enhanced by the multidisciplinary and multinational attendance from several Initial Training Networks - NanoEmbrace, Molesco, Fluor21 and MICSED.  Approximately 50 researchers attended from institutions across Europe, spanning from Iceland to St Petersburg.

The conference took place in the historic hotel, Lumley Castle.

Notedev Fellows also spent a day learning about industrial and commercial aspects of technology with a visit to the Centre for Process Innovation, at NetPark followed by a series of lectures.
