We have 10 neutron stars PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

Resolving the unresolvable: using lenses to map accretion onto black holes and neutron stars

Supervisory Team: Dr Matthew Middleton. Project description. White dwarfs located in the halo of Andromeda (M31) are expected to lens some of the 100s of X-ray bright, accreting compact objects (black holes and neutron stars) located in that galaxy. Read more

Hidden black holes and the search for self-lensing binaries

Supervisory Team: Dr Matthew Middleton. Project description. Binary systems containing high mass stars evolve through a number of stages, and in many cases can appear as a black hole or neutron star orbiting at a large distance from a ‘normal’ companion star. Read more

The Largest Survey of the Hard X-ray Sky - Ever!

Supervisory Team: Tony Bird. Project description. When viewed through hard X-ray instruments, the sky gives an ever-changing view of the most energetic and explosive processes in the universe. Read more

The effect of General Relativity on super-Eddington accretion

Supervisory Team:  Dr Matthew Middleton. Project description. Compact objects (neutron stars and black holes) can accrete material through a disc which is bright across the EM spectrum. Read more

High-speed astrophysics with ULTRACAM and HiPERCAM

  Research Group: Astronomy and Astrophysics
ULTRACAM and HiPERCAM are high-speed optical cameras that can take hundreds/thousands of CCD images per second simultaneously in three/five colours, respectively. Read more
