Many congratulations to our group members. Sneha passed her viva this month and has also recently received a BFWG Mary Kearsley Scholarship
. Matt received his PhD and has been awarded the McLean Medal, an annual award to the postgraduate student with the best accepted or published journal paper. Chris has been awarded a JSPS fellowship
for 6 months to work with Prof. Toshio Kamiya at Tokyo Institute of Technology. Jason is joining the Imperial-KAIST Global Fellows Programme
to do work in KAIST from July.
Our paper on the segregation of In to dislocations in InGaN has been published in Nano Letters
Our paper on the band gap and electronic structure of MgSiN2 has been published in Applied Physics Letters
