Prof Louise Bradley’s research interests are in the area of photonic materials and devices. Studies of novel devices for optical telecommunications systems, including microcavity enhanced two-photon absorption detectors and multi-electrode semiconductor optical amplifiers, have been funded by Enterprise Ireland. She was a visiting scientist in the Sup’Telecom, Paris in 2003 and her most recent research on energy transfer in nanocrystal quantum dot systems is funded by Science Foundation Ireland. The focus of this research is to understand how energy transfer systems can be influenced by interaction with plasmonic structures. This knowledge can be applied to light emitting devices and solar cell applications.
Prof. Louise Bradley is a Senior Lecturer and Principal Investigator in the School of Physics. She received her BSc in Physics from University College Dublin in 1992. Subsequently, she was awarded a MSc in 1994 and a PhD in Semiconductor Photonics in 1998 from Trinity College Dublin. In 2001 she was appointed to the academic staff in the School of Physics and was elected to fellowship of the college in 2009. She collaborates with researchers in Ireland and throughout Europe. She is the Irish representative in COST MP0702.
