Dr. Clark and Dr. Heydari presented their work on plasmonic biosensing and plasmonic colour-generation at this year's SPIE Photonics West. A great conference, as usual.
Dr. Alasdair Clark has been awarded a grant from The Leverhulme Trust to explore the use of DNA as a patterning and manipulation tool for the creation of transformable photonic components at the nanoscale. In collaboration with Dr. Glenn Burley at the University of Strathclyde, the £230,000 award will run from May 2015 for 30 months.
Dr. Clark presented the group's work on molecular positioning of nanoparticles to tune plasmonic surfaces at this year's NanoMeta conference in Austria. A conference that combines snowboarding and plasmonics was not to be missed!
Every 2 years the US National Academy of Engineering, in partnership with EURO-CASE, organizes a EU-US symposium which aims to bring together 60 outstanding, early-career engineers under the age of 45 from industry, universities, and other research institutions. Choosing 30 engineers from the EU and 30 from the US, the event facilitates international and cross-disciplinary research collaboration, and encourages the creation of a transatlantic network of world-class engineers.
Dr. Alasdair Clark was selected to attend as one of the 30 outstanding EU engineers at this years event, which took place Seattle, Washington. Hosted by The Boeing Company, the symposium tackled cutting-edge developments and challenges in four key areas: Smart Homes, Energy Storage Across Scales, Atoms to Airplanes: Designer/Engineered Aerospace Materials, and Protein Design for Therapeutic and Biotech Applications.
