PhD study in Astronomical observatory

PhD study in Astronomy covers a theoretical and observational research, analysing the optically variable objects like accreting binary stars, extreme horizontal branch star and active galactic nuclei, as well as the high energy astrophysics, multiwavelength astronomy, radio astronomy, relativistic astrophysics and cosmology.

Interacting supernovae: studying stellar evolution, diversity and environment via their explosions

Supernovae are catastrophic stellar explosions shaping the visible Universe. They play an important role in the synthesis and distribution of almost all elements and especially heavy elements such as iron, enriching the Universe since the first supernova explosion when the cosmos was metal-free.

Searching for Quantization of Space-time with quantum-enhanced interferometers.

  Research Group: Gravity Exploration Institute
Laser interferometers have long been used to probe fundamental physics phenomena, from disproving the existence of the theorized ether well over a hundred years ago to making the first direct detections of gravitational waves in recent years. Read more

Marriages Made in Heaven: the Origin of Multiple Star Systems

CONTEXT. Most high- and intermediate-mass stars are in stable multiple systems, usually binary systems where the two stars pursue elliptical orbits round each other, but quite often higher-order multiples involving three or more stars. Read more

Star clusters and star-forming clouds: finding order in chaos

  Research Group: Cardiff Hub for Astrophysics Research and Technology
CONTEXT. Interstellar clouds, and the star clusters they spawn, are chaotic systems, due to the non-linearity of the processes that drive their evolution -- viz. Read more

Bipolar HII Regions produced by Colliding Clouds

  Research Group: Cardiff Hub for Astrophysics Research and Technology
CONTEXT. When two interstellar clouds collide at high speed, they produce a shock-compressed layer, which becomes gravitationally unstable and fragments, producing a cluster of stars. Read more

The convergence of interstellar filaments and its link to the formation of the most massive stars

  Research Group: Cardiff Hub for Astrophysics Research and Technology
In the past decade filaments have been recognised as a major structural element of the interstellar medium, the densest of these filaments hosting the formation of most stars. Read more

Revealing the Hidden Light: Understanding the cosmic dust and cold gas in nearby galaxies.

  Research Group: Cardiff Hub for Astrophysics Research and Technology
Cosmic dust is often seen as an annoyance by astronomers, with over half the light ever emitted by stars in the Universe having been absorbed by a dust grain. Read more

Do magnetic fields matter when it comes to star cluster formation?

  Research Group: Cardiff Hub for Astrophysics Research and Technology
Stars are the candles of the Universe, they light up every single galaxy allowing us to study their structure across the cosmos. Despite their importance, there are still many aspects of the star formation process that remain poorly constrained. Read more

PhD in Physics and Astronomy - Neuromorphic Single Photon Imaging

What could we learn if we were able to see individual photons with our eyes? Can we learn more if we can see when the photons arrive as well? Gaining access to time information from single photons can allow us to detect the distance to object (LiDAR), see through walls, fog etc. Read more

Development of novel III-V semiconductors for optoelectronic devices

The project will be based on III-V semiconductors materials and devices. It will start with the basic understanding of material physics by familiarisation of ultra-high vacuum (UHV) growth technique and in-situ characterization and simulation of the electronic structure of the group III-Arsenide/Antimonide/Nitride).
