E-MRS Fall 2023

David and Mugove were at European Materials Research Society (E-MRS) 2023 meeting in Warsaw. Lots of interesting discussions on defect characterization, methodologies, and promising applications for Ga2O3.

UWO Best Student Presentation

David wins best student presentation at the Ultra-Wide Bandgap Oxides workshop in Bristol, for his presentation on “Hydrogen-related 3.8 eV luminescence in alpha-Ga2O3”. Well done David!!!

David’s first first

Today is a great day in the history of the group, David got his first first-author paper published (https://doi.org/10.1063/5.0135103). Well done David!

UK Nitride Consortium (Bristol, Jan 2023)

Fabien was in Bristol 5-6 January 2023 for the UK Nitride Consortium, where he delivered the Foxon lecture (opening plenary talk). He presented the recent work from the GOOD group on investigation of the nanoscale properties of GaN and Ga2O3.

Springboard meeting on UV detection

We were at the Institut Francais d’Ecosse in Edinburgh for a Springboard meeting between Ecole Centrale de Lyon and the University Strathclyde to lay out future directions of research on UV photodetectors.

The GOOD group at UK Semiconductor

The GOOD group travelled down to Sheffield for UK Semiconductor to present our latest research on Ga2O3. David was giving his first in-person presentation on the origin of the 3.8 eV luminescence line in Ga2O3, and Fabien was presenting his work on Ti contacts to Ga2O3. Fabien also gave a featured talk at the Ga2O3 Innovation Session on the opportunities and challenges of Ga2O3 devices.

Fabien receives Rank Prize Research Visionary Award

Fabien was down to London at the IET London: Savoy Place to share his vision for the future of UV optoelectronics and be presented the Rank Prize Research Visionary Award. The ceremony was hosted by science broadcaster Jim Al-Khalili.
