Dr Cinzia Casiraghi

Lecturer

Our group investigate the electronic, vibrational and optical properties of two- and one-dimensional materials such as graphene, and carbon nanotubes. The aim of our research is to exploit the huge innovation potential of these new materials in electronics, photonics, sensors and bioengineering. The main technique used to investigate the properties of these materials is Raman Spectroscopy, but we also have acces to state-of-the-art facilities including clean rooms, electron microscopy and chemical labs.

Photon Science Institute

The Photon Science Institute was established in 2005 to bring together experts from a wide range of scientific fields to foster the development of cross and multi-disciplinary collaborations and provide a dynamic and exciting culture for the progression of new ideas in photon science. The term photon science encompasses all areas where light is used in scientific endeavour — light for science.
