Copernicus monument in Warsaw

In 1993 L. Dobaczewski, I. D. Hawkins and A. R. Peaker were awarded the UK National prize for Measurement for the invention of Laplace DLTS  by the National Physical Laboratory (http://www NULL.npl

The Laplace Deep Level Transient Spectroscopic system has been developed within the European Union project Copernicus № CIPA CT-094 172 by the Project partners (1995-1998).

In parallel the project entitled New high-resolution spectroscopy of point defects in semiconductors  (Nowa wysokorozdzielcza spektroskopia centrów defektowych w materiałach półprzewodnikowych), number Nr 8 S501 035 05, funded by the Ministry of Science and Higher Education, has been carried out in Poland, 1993-1995

In 1997 A.R. Peaker was awarded a Royal Academy of Engineering (http://www NULL.raeng Fellowship to spend a year at the High Magnetic Field Lab in Grenoble (http://www NULL.lncmi NULL.cnrs working with J-C Portal and D Maude to investigate perturbations to carrier emission using Laplace DLTS in high magnetic fields and under uni-axial stress.

Upgrading Laplace DLTS system to the Transient Processor stage was possible due to funds obtained in 2004-2005 from The Foundation for Polish Science (http://www NULL.fnp NULL.html) within the TECHNE programme (project № TECHNE 17/2004).

Recently completed projects: Instrument to probe the electronic and structural properties of impurities, defects and nanostructures in semiconductor materials and devices (http://gow NULL.epsrc NULL.aspx?GrantRef=EP/C009738/1), funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, carried out at the University of Manchester, 2005-2008

… and High-resolution optical Laplace transient spectroscopy (Stanowisko do optycznej wysokorozdzielczej laplasowskiej spektroskopii zjawisk niestacjonarnych), funded by the Ministry of Science and Higher Education, carried out in Poland 2007-2008
