NanoEngineering Group

Tawfique Hasan

Welcome to the NanoEngineering Research group at the Cambridge Graphene Centre (CGC).

Our work encompasses Engineering, Physics, Chemistry, Materials Science and Nanotechnology, exploiting 0D, 1D and 2D nanomaterials for (opto)electronics, photonics, sensors and energy devices. We are also interested in computation-enabled smart devices, where algorithms are playing an increasingly important role in their performance and reliability. Exploiting the unique characteristics of various nanomaterials and synergies between them, supported by advanced learning algorithms is the theme of our ambitious multidisciplinary research, with a view towards real world applications.

For the 2023 intake, we are looking for MPhil and PhD candidates with *excellent academic results* and research backgrounds in 1) organic/electrochemical transducers 2) low-dimensional material-based devices for IR detection and imaging 3) computational approaches to nanomaterial-based sensors and 4) 3D printing of complex structures. International postdoctoral researchers and fellows for long term (12 months or more) collaborative research visits in these areas are particularly welcome. If you are interested, please get in touch with Tawfique directly to learn more about these areas.
