She was accompanied by postdocs Peter Karlsen and XM² alumni Lauren Barr who is now working as a postdoc at the Univeristy of Exeter. Lauren presented her latest findings on how Cavity improves optical modulation of silicon for Thz imaging.
Overall, there were 95 participants representing a wide range of institutions within the UK THz community, plus representatives from 5 companies to showcase the latest developments in commercial THz technology. Talks included examining the resonant scattering off AFM tips and measuring the thickness of car coatings.
The workshop built a fantastic platform to network and learn more about the THz research done across the UK. It is set to become an annual event to further foster the development of THz research within the UK community.
Last but not least, congratulations to Peter for bringing the prize for Best Postdoc Poster Presentation home to Exeter. He made a convincing impression with his poster on “Sign inversion in the terahertz photoconductivity of single-walled carbon nanotube films“!
