Developing luminescent ice
Brendan is going to work on a new energy-related topic using a luminescent probe. The Sakaue lab is developing a "luminescent ice" that can be used to quantify the melting of Antarctic ice beds under solar radiation. It is challenging to identify a good luminescent probe that can be used for ice, and we need an undergraduate student who can help us to do trial and error type of tests. If successful, this luminescent ice can be used for various energy topics that are related to ice.
