Hristo joined the CDT in September 2017, having previously completed an MSci in Physics with Astrophysics at the University of Glasgow.
In Semester 1 of 2017-18 Hristo completed a short exploratory research project at the University of Glasgow in Testing of Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Lasers (VCSELs), supervised by Professor Richard Hogg. In Semester 2 of 2017-18 he conducted a practical research project at Queen's University Belfast supervised by Dr Miryam Arredondo, Developing FIB strategies to locally measure plasmonics nanostructures.
CDT PhD Project
EXPLORING 3D NANOPATTERNED STRUCTURES FABRICATED BY PLASMA FIB
Professor Stephen McVitie, University of Glasgow
Dr Solveig Felton, Queen's University Belfast
The end goal of the project is to produce and analyse 3D magnetic nanostructures (nanowires and nanotubes). Simulation is done with the help of micro-magnetic and atomic scale simulation software. Different geometries and sizes are considered in order to find stable structures with useful magnetic configurations. Some test structures will be produced in the next few months using the Plasma FIB at Glasgow University. Said structures will then be imaged and characterised by a specialised TEM.
