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!
Throughout the two weeks at LIYSF, participants had the opportunity to attend several plenary lectures that were held at the Royal Geographical Society. These plenary lectures focused on different areas of Science, Technology, Engineering and Medicine (STEM), with the underlying connection being the theme for LIYSF 2019, ‘Science At The Interface.’ They provided participants with an excelle...

Science has played a pertinent role in shaping our current society. Throughout the course of history, the role of science has progressed from mere experiments, to innovative and cutting-edge discoveries that are rapidly propelling us into the future. Much of this progression comes from embracing the contributions science has had on the broader aspects of society and how it has inevitably shaped...
