Sensing meetings will be held at the University of Adelaide every second Thursday (10:30 -11:30) in the Braggs Building 2.14
The idea is that one or two members of the theme will be chosen to present a brief (strictly no more than 15 min) talk about either their work or on a paper in the literature that is of interest to the theme – volunteers will be appreciated and encouraged! Besides that a general overview of activities, existing problems, insights and new opportunities will be discussed too.
If you would like further information about these meetings please contact Dr Georgios Tsiminis
Congratulations to the team who published Nature Nanotechnology Paper ” Single-nanocrystal sensitivity achieved by enhanced upconversion luminescence” for receiving a highly cited sticker on web of science.
110 high school students from Adelaide High School and Seymour College converged at the University of Adelaide to be inspired by Prof Tanya Monro and Prof Andrew McKinnon. Students were also participated in a tour of the Braggs building, including glass fabrication labs and other University facilities.
Prof Mark Hutchinson was a finalist for the Life Sciences and Biological Sciences Young Scopus Resarcher Awards 2014.
