Warwick Electrochemistry and Interfaces Research Group welcomes LIYSF 2015
During your visit to the Warwick Electrochemistry and Interfaces group, you will have a chance to experience a full day of hands-on activities and glimpse into the world of cutting-edge research.
In small groups, we will investigate the structural and electrochemical properties of in-house grown carbon nanotubes networks! You will have a chance to get some experience with electrochemical techniques and have the opportunity to use some of our state-of-the-art atomic force microscopy (AFM) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) facilities.
We will also build some dye sensitised solar cells (DSSC). In this experiment, we will use raspberries to power a calculator! We will be able to measure the performance of your solar cell and realise how closely these processes are to photosynthesis.
We have been extremely grateful to have hosted LIYSF over the past 10 years and look forward to your visit again this year!

Instead of training students in any one of these domains, STEM combines all four in an interdisciplinary and applied approach, so as to better equip students to have a career and considering real...
