Flexible coherent control of plasmonic spin-Hall effect

Description
By exploring the optical spin-Hall effect, we are working towards developing a flexible and tunable holographic input interface for optical chips - the likely successors of silicon–based microchips that could transform the world of new technology, leading to ultra–fast computing and innovative applications in biomedical science.

Birmingham leads on shaping energy systems of the future

Description
Energy storage is the capture of energy produced at one time for later use. Identified by the UK government as one of "eight great technologies" in which the UK can be a world leader and that will help drive future economic growth and innovation, energy storage will play a vital role in shaping the energy systems of the future.
