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!
Plastic plays such an intimate role in our daily lives, from the contact lenses we wear, to the containers we consume our food in. While its creation may have paved the way to a more convenient and innovative society, the question is, at what cost? Plastic dependency Single-use plastic is the main culprit that has permeated our daily lives and is now polluting our beautiful lands and oceans....

My passion for science and the desire to find answers began at a young age, examining the array of colours on flower petals and pondering over how or why it is that colour. It has since then developed into a lifelong goal to discover new and wondrous principles that will hopefully lead to making lives better. I arrived in the U.K at the age of 10. One of the main challenges that arose was my unde...

Let’s start with the facts: An estimated 880 million people still don't have regular access to clean water. On average, women in developing countries walk 6 Kilometers a day to collect water. About 5,000 children die each day due to preventable diseases such as cholera, which are caused due the intake of contaminated water. A lack of water for personal hygiene lea...
