The LDSD Group carries out leading-edge research in the physics and applications of semiconductor nanostructures, with particular emphasis on novel opto-electronic phenomena. Our research is carried out in eight well provided laboratories, equipped to the highest standards for advanced optics research on solid state materials. The research is supported by the UK Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, the EU FP7 programme, the Royal Society and the British Council. Our international impact may be judged for example by our 7 publications in Nature family journals, 23 in Physical Review Letters and 100 invited talks over the last 6 years. Full details of our research programmes, present members, career destinations of past members and current vacancies may be found by clicking on the links above.

Further information on our activities and vacancies may be obtained by contacting Professor Maurice Skolnick at m.skolnick@sheffield.ac.uk and by consulting our web site.
