PhD in Mathematics and Statistics - Multiscale modelling of liquid crystal-filled porous media

Liquid crystals are scientifically fascinating and visually beautiful liquids that are all around us, forming an integral part of the liquid crystal display (LCD) used in almost every smart phone and computer display, and contained in both the cell wall and internal cytoplasm of all biological cells.

Rational Control of Crystal Morphology

  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
The external shape of crystalline particles (called morphology) is of paramount importance in a wide range of applications, in particular pharmaceuticals and pigments. Read more

PhD Studentship in Physical Crystallography of Advanced Inorganic Materials

This studentship will remain open until the position has been filled and so early applications are encouraged. Single crystals of functional materials can provide a wealth of structural and physical information to the materials chemist that is unavailable or hard to obtain from polycrystalline samples. Read more

Twist-bend liquid crystal phases

Liquid crystals are often referred to as the fourth state of matter and are perhaps most familiar to us through the ubiquitous liquid crystal displays but are far more common than that. Read more

Crystal structure prediction of imperfectly ordered materials

Supervisory Team.   Prof. Graeme Day. Project description. A fully funded PhD studentship is available in the area of computational materials discovery, as part of a prestigious international Synergy grant funded by the European Research Council. Read more

Mathematics of Liquid Crystal Elastomers

Fully Funded EPSRC PhD Studentship in Applied and Computational Mathematics. Available from October 2022. Liquid crystal elastomers (LCEs) are advanced, stimuli-responsive materials which can convert light or heat into mechanical work, without the need for batteries, electric wires or gears. Read more

Polar liquid crystal nematic phases

The nematic phase (N) is the least ordered liquid crystal phase, and in which the long axes of the rod-like molecules are more or less aligned in the same direction, known as the director, whereas their centres of mass are randomly distributed. Read more

Co-crystal Minerals on Titan: Structure, Spectroscopy, and Photochemistry.

Opportunities are available for international or New Zealand candidates to perform laboratory-based research in the Ennis Lab toward the characterization and chemistry of co-crystal minerals located on Saturn’s moon Titan. Read more

High Speed Materials for Holographic Head-up Displays using Liquid Crystal on Silicon Spatial Light Modulators

  Research Group: School of Physics and Astronomy
A fully funded industrial project to study novel liquid crystal materials and device approaches for use in Liquid Crystal on Silicon Spatial Light Modulators, used in Head up displays for the automotive sector. Read more

Development and implementation of a mesoscopic modelling tool for Liquid Crystal Elastomers

Conventional elastomeric materials (rubbers) have poor shock-absorbing (dissipative) capabilities. In contrast, a sub-class of rubbers called liquid crystal elastomers (LCEs) show exceptional dissipative capabilities. Read more

3D printing of liquid crystal elastomers

  Research Group: School of Mathematics
Liquid crystal elastomers (LCEs) are a new class of soft materials which have a myriad of potential uses due to their unique properties. Direct-Ink Writing (DIW) 3D printing provides a potential method to make large and highly complex devices from LCEs, but we need to first understand precisely how to control and optimise the extent of molecular order created in 3D printed devices.

Luminescent Liquid Crystals

Background. Organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) represent a highly competitive, flat-panel display technology that is increasingly penetrating the market once dominated by liquid crystal displays. Read more
