Mr. Nick Burridge
Nick obtained his BSc in physics from Swansea University in 2019, achieving a 1st and winning the prize for highest achieving graduating student of the physics cohort. He joined the Sêr SAM team in October 2019 for his Applied Physics and Materials MSc by Research. His current research revolves around investigating a new type of metal grid architecture to reduce the sheet resistance of transparent conducting electrodes, hence increasing the power conversion efficiencies (PCEs) of cells that utilise the architecture.
The ultimate aim of this research is to produce a large area solar cell that has a satisfactory PCE. Overall, Nick’s research aims are heavily invested in combating global warming, which he believes is the most important issue facing society today. His aim is to use his knowledge of physics to help society and build a sustainable future.
Nick grew up in the south east of England in a village called Meopham, 30 minutes train ride from London. In his spare time, he likes to play the piano (currently learning Beethoven’s ‘Moonlight Sonata’), hike, mountain bike, keep fit in the gym and enjoys underground music. On weekends, you will often find him out in the Brecon Beacons walking with friends and enjoying the latest music events in Swansea.
