David Lidzey is a Professor of Physics in the Department of Physics and Astronomy.
He has a strong interest in the study of photonic and optoelectronic structures and devices containing thin-film semiconductor materials. A continuing theme of his research has been the development of photonic structures and devices containing fluorescent organic materials. Here, he has made notable breakthroughs including the first observation of the strong-coupling regime in an organic microcavity. He has also worked on aspects of the physics, technology and applications of polymer light emitting diodes and organic and perovskite photovoltaics.
David teaches on the physics of sustainable energy, physics in an enterprise culture and also tutors 1st year physics. He also leads a module on Experimental Methods for students.
