Collaborations and Visits

We have an established collaboration with the plasma group of the Excited State Chemistry Group, Research Institute for Environmental Management Technology,at the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) in Tsukuba, near Tokyo. In addition, we are developing collaborations with plasma groups in Poland, Czech Republic and Iran. Professor Young Sun Mok from Cheju National University, Korea, spent a sabbatical year with us during 2007.

Professor Futamura from AIST visited the UK in February 2005 and Dr H-H Kim, also from AIST visited in 2006 (see photo of Dr Kim's visit, above).

Alice Harling won a REES (Research Experience for European Students) Scholarship to spend July and August 2005 at Tsukuba initiating joint experiments. In the following year, Sarah Hill spent the summer also doing plasma research at AIST supported by JISTEC. Helen Gallon spent the summer of 2009 at AIST supported by JSPS. JSPS also supported a visit by Maria Prantsidou to work with Prof Akira Mizuno in Toyohashi University during 2011.
