High-throughput solid state synthesis of functional inorganic materials for net zero applications

The discovery of new functional materials to drive technologies for the net zero transition, such as batteries, solar absorbers, rare-earth-free magnets for wind power and a myriad of other unmet needs, is a scientific and societal grand challenge. Read more

Quantum optimal control of quadrupolar nuclei for solid state magnetic resonance

Supervisory Team: Dr Marina Carravetta, Prof Ilya Kuprov, Dr Matt Potter. Project description The University of Southampton is expanding its PhD research in the area of Quantum Technology Engineering. Read more

The Contribution of Lattice Vibrations to Switchable Spin-Crossover Crystals

  Research Group: School of Chemistry
Spin-crossover is a high-spin-to-low-spin transition at a transition metal centre, induced by temperature or pressure. It is common in iron chemistry, but also occurs in some compounds of other common metals. Read more

Chiral Gravitons in Topological Quantum Matter: From Solid-State Materials to Quantum Computers

  Research Group: School of Physics and Astronomy
A major open problem in modern physics is the table-top generation and detection of emergent particles analogous to gravitons. the elusive mediators of gravitational force in a quantum theory of gravity. Read more

Organic Synthesis and Self-Assembly of State-Independent Electrolyte Materials

Ideal electrolytes for energy devices such as batteries and solar cells would (i) be lightweight and flexible, (ii) exhibit thermal stability, (iii) be non-volatile (to reduce fire risk), (iv) provide good interfacial contact with electrodes, (v) be amenable to processing and recycling, (vi) have high ionic conductivities, and (vii) be made from cheap, renewable feedstocks.

Optimal control methods for strongly coupled spin systems in solid materials

Supervisory Team: Dr Marina Carravetta, Prof Ilya Kuprov, Dr Peter Wells. Project description: The University of Southampton is expanding its PhD research in the area of Quantum Technology Engineering. Read more

(A*STAR Split-site) Lead-free piezoelectric coatings for ultrasonic sensors

Various types of lead-free ferroelectric ceramics have been developed in recent years due to environmental concerns over the use of lead-based materials such as lead zirconate titanate. Read more

PhD Studentship in the atomistic dynamics of mechanochemical reactivity

Applications are sought for a fully funded 3.5-year PhD position in the group of Dr Adam Michalchuk in the School of Chemistry at the University of Birmingham to start Oct. Read more

Photonic simulators of quantum mechanics and solid-state physics

Photonic systems offer a highly-controllable platform for the exploration of universal wave phenomena. In this PhD project, you will experimentally and theoretically investigate the use of optical fibre resonators for simulating dynamical wave phenomena at the frontiers of quantum and mechanics and solid-state physics.

Mechanophores for the force-controlled release of small molecules

Any force developed at the macroscopic scale can induce dramatic changes at the molecular scale, even breaking covalent bonds.[1] Indeed, mechanical force is a formidable source of energy that, with its ability to distort, bend and stretch chemical bonds, is unique in its ability to promote reaction pathways that are otherwise inaccessible to traditional methods of activation.

Mechanochemistry with mechanical bonds

Any force developed at the macroscopic scale can induce dramatic changes at the molecular scale, even breaking covalent bonds.[1] Indeed, mechanical force is a formidable source of energy that, with its ability to distort, bend and stretch chemical bonds, is unique in its ability to promote reaction pathways that are otherwise inaccessible to traditional methods of activation.
