Professor Polina Bayvel, CDT Supervisor at UCL and research associate, Dr Robert Maher, have pioneered a new way to process fibre optic signals which could double the distance at which data travels error-free through transatlantic sub-marine cables.
Findings in Nature Physics paper could lead to more precise information transfer in computer chips and other applications. The paper has attracted lots of interest and is featured on the homepage of the US Department of Energy.
Prof. Clemens Kaminski was elected as a Fellow of the Optical Society of America (OSA) in recognition of "pioneering work in the development of optical methods for quantifying the kinetics of reactions in chemical and biological systems".
Cambridge CDT Students Andrew Payne and Calum Williams Winners of 2014 Zeiss Photography Competition
The annual competition aims to show the breadth of engineering research at the University, from objects at the nanoscale all the way to major infrastructure. Both Andrew and Calum's images have received national and international coverage.
CDT Student Adam Funnell recently travelled to Nanjing University, China, to present original research carried out during his MRes project at the University of Cambridge.
The inventors of single molecule localisation and stimulated emission depletion (STED) super-resolution microscopy were today honoured with the Nobel prize for chemistry. One of the key applications of super-resolution imaging, pioneered by Professor Clemens Kaminski, (a CDT Supervisor at Cambridge) and mentioned by the Nobel Assembly, is the study of protein aggregation reactions in the context of neurodegenerative diseases.
