Funding

First grant awarded!

Dr. Chauvet is the recipient of EPSRC’s notorious Young Investigator Award.

This grant will cover a 3-years postdoc and the necessary equipment to pursue the ultrafast investigation of newly synthesised -intriguing- porphyrins (£ 380k).

Big thanks to the EPSRC for funding the “Property-Enhanced Porphyrins” project and all the people involved in the reviewing process.

Graduation

Celebrating the graduates

Congratulation to Steve and Tom for having successfully defended their master thesis!

It was an intense but rewarding job: getting the first ultrafast Transient Absorption data of the group.

Looking back at it, it is always an amazing feat; that of making a molecule speak… something that you cannot even see by eye, being too small, moving too fast, but still being able to listen to it by means of high power laser and a dose of computational modelling 🙂

We wish you all the best for your future career.
