Dr Paul Snow 


I am interested in the interaction of light with carriers in microstructured semiconductors. My recent work has focussed on using porous silicon multilayer mirrors to control this interaction. Details can be found in the Optoelectronics Group web pages. Other work has looked at the diffusion of organic vapours into the pores of porous silicon and measured and modelled this with a view to producing gas sensors.
