The 10 minute presentation was entitled “Femtosecond laser direct micro-cutting of graphene for device applications” and was aimed at a scientific and professional audience (18 Professors), there were also questions and discussions during a poster session.
Tianqi would like to thank the organisers of the First Year PhD Students’ Conference held at the Institute for Manufacturing, University of Cambridge in May 2014 where she was awarded joint second place; she feels that this allowed her to gain the experience and confidence to compete at international level.
