Jessica Wade

My name is Jess and I’m doing a PhD in physics at Imperial College London. At the moment, I’m printing solutions of organic semiconductors (carbon based semiconducting materials) on to plastics and seeing how the molecules interact with each other. Hopefully, we can make the molecules line-up really nicely and get super-efficient devices; whether they are LEDs in bendy TVs or solar cells on backpacks or transistors in flexible mobile phones. Out of the lab I am a keen chef, cyclist and a massive Arsenal fan.

Do planets orbit stars the same way electrons orbit atoms?
