    March 2013: Welcome to Dr Mohana Rajpalke, who joins as a postdoc from the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore.

    December 2012: Our research on Mg-doping of InN is published in PRL.

    October 2012: Welcome to Max Birkett, who joins the group to pursue his doctoral research.

    August 2012: The group welcomes Dr Wojciech Linhart, who joins as a postdoc.

    April 2012: The EPSRC has awarded a Research Project Grant of £312,481 to the University of Liverpool to be directed by Dr Tim Veal. The research project, which will run for 2 years, is a collaboration with Dr Steve Durbin of University at Buffalo, USA and Dr Mark Ashwin at University of Warwick, UK on novel semiconductors for solar and thermo photovoltaics.

    January 2012: The group is founded at Liverpool with one PhD student, Andrzej Stącel.


Prof Tim Veal leads the Semiconductor Material Physics research within the Stephenson Institute for Renewable Energy at the University of Liverpool. After an MPhys in Mathematics and Physics (1998) and PhD in Semiconductor Surface Electronic Properties at the University of Warwick (2002), he developed research in indium nitride and antimonides as a postdoc at Warwick. He gained an EPSRC Career Acceleration Fellowship (2008-2014) to work on Nitride Photovoltaic Materials for Full Spectrum Utilization before moving to the University of Liverpool as Reader in the Department of Physics in January 2012 and being promoted to Professor in October 2017.
