Photosensitive sensor on printed circuit board

Electronic devices

Our work on electronic devices research spans the modelling and synthesis of atomic layer thin films, using Molecular Beam Epitaxy, to nanometre scale device fabrication to complete sensor systems.

Examples include devices in the kHz to THz frequency range for applications including THz imaging and environmental sensors.

The University of Manchester is involved two major programmes:

These explore a range of remote sensing technologies using new quantum phenomena.

Research focus

We are experts in this field and cover all aspects related to electronic devices.

Some specific areas we focus on are:

  • Quantum Well Hall Effect Sensors icon
  • THz devices icon
  • Environmental and Bio Sensors icon
