About This Event


This webinar series is designed for small and medium businesses to gain ground-breaking knowledge from leading academics in areas that are beneficial to help them grow by accessing research and innovation expertise. These webinars will help SMEs exchange information, understand how to integrate new technology to develop products and services and how to turn ideas into new products and services.

This second webinar in the series will focus on electric car batteries and quantum sensors and will be led by Research Professor of Experimental Physics from the University of Sussex, Peter Kruger.

Peter studied Physics, Mathematics, Chemistry and Philosophy in Berlin (FU), Innsbruck and Heidelberg and graduated with a PhD from Heidelberg. He joined the University of Sussex in 2016 where he now heads the Quantum Systems and Devices group and is founding director of the Sussex Programme for Quantum Research. His field of specialisation is atomic physics and ultracold quantum gases with his current projects including: quantum magnetometry applications in brain imaging (magnetoencephalography), electric vehicle batteries and microscopic imaging of novel micro- and nanostructured materials and electronic devices.

Please register here if you would like to attend, links to join will then be sent prior to the event.

This project has received funding from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) as part of the European Structural and Investment Funds Growth Programme 2014-2020. The Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (and in London the intermediate body Greater London Authority) is the managing authority for the ERDF.
Established by the European Union, the ERDF helps local areas stimulate their economic development by investing in projects which will support innovation and businesses, create jobs and regenerate local communities. Read further information here.
