New project to investigate low-dimensional energy materials

1D v2

In the renewal of his Royal Society University Research Fellowship, Dr Fenwick will be develop new low dimensional materials for energy applications.

Materials confined into low dimensional structures develop new properties that are not observed in the bulk. This includes new (opto)electronic properties. Additionally, nanostructures tend to have low thermal conductivity due to phonon scattering at their boundaries, which is a key requirement of a thermoelectric material. Nonetheless, individual nanostructures are only used in limited applications due to fabrication challenges and the difficulty of integrating them into devices. This project will develop bulk materials with low dimensional character.
