Imperial College Research Fellow
Imperial College London
Dr Jess Wade is an Imperial College Research Fellow working in the Department of Materials at Imperial College London. Her research considers new materials for optoelectronic devices, with a focus on chiral organic semiconductors. She previously worked as a postdoctoral researcher in the Fuchter group at Imperial College London, where she optimised these chiral systems such that they can absorb/emit circularly polarised light as well as transport spin-polarised electrons. For her PhD Jess concentrated on new materials for photovoltaics and the development of advanced characterisation techniques to better understand their molecular packing. Outside of the lab, Jess is involved with several science communicate on and outreach initiatives. She is committed to improving diversity in science, both online and offline.
Quantum computers get a lot of hype, but what about quantum sensors? From perfecting underwater navigation and sharpening earthquake warning systems to Star-Trek-like portable scanners that...
