  Three-Dimensional Active Liquid Crystals: Defects and Topology
  Dr GP Alexander
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Active matter is a class of materials in which the individual constituents continually consume energy to generate work or motion, maintaining the system in dynamic, self-organised, nonequilibrium states [1].
  New light-responsive energy harvesters for energy storage
  Dr A Martinez-Felipe, Dr M N Campbell-Bannerman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Energy harvesting will play a central role to offset the variability of renewable energy sources and achieve decarbonisation in global economies.
  Dyes and Liquid Crystals: Molecular Designs for Guest-Host Applications
  Dr J N Moore, Dr S Cowling
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. A variety of devices for colour and monochrome displays can be obtained by incorporating a dye as a guest in a liquid crystalline (LC) host, providing a flexible route to light-scattering devices that can operate in strong ambient light, including outdoors.
  New light-responsive electrolytes for energy conversion
  Dr A Martinez-Felipe, Mr J Cavanagh
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In this PhD project, we will develop new electrolytes with high ionic conductivity to increase the efficiency of fuel cells and batteries.
  Applications of topology to soft matter physics
  Dr M Grant, Dr R Hepworth
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will address mathematical problems in the research field of algebraic topology, inspired by the theory of topological defects in soft materials.
  Thermally Activated Delayed Fluorescence for application in Organic Light-emitting Diodes displays
  Prof D W Bruce
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Organic Light-emitting Diodes (OLEDs) have moved quickly from basic design concept to commercial displays and have gained popularity on the basis of the image quality possible, due in part to the better blacks than are possible with liquid crystal displays (LCDs).
  Role of structure in glass formation and mechanical properties
  Dr A Liu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In condensed matter physics, the structure of a material is integral to its nature. Glasses are not an easy fit in this model. At a fundamental level, it is not known how their structure reflects their formation or the properties they subsequently display.
  Novel approach to control pharmaceutical crystallisation using heterogeneous nucleation
  Dr K Johnston, Prof J Sefcik
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Control of crystallisation is essential in many applications across food (e.g. chocolate and ice cream), chemical, and pharmaceutical industries.
  X-ray studies of dynamic fluctuations in Nano-scaled artificial Spin-Ices
  Dr T PA Hase
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Geometric frustration, in which pair-wise interactions are incompatible with the underlying lattice can be found in many fields. Exploring the effect in bulk crystals is limited by the inability to modify the interactions in a systematic manner.
