solid state physics PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

We have 69 solid state physics PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

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.

Modelling dynamics of polaron formation in oxides

Please note that owing to funding restrictions beyond the supervisors’ control, this PhD studentship is open to British citizenships or EU citizens with UK (pre-)settled status only. Read more

Doctoral student in Physics within the discipline of characterisation of artificial protein motors

Project description. The goal of the project is to characterize artificial protein motors on single molecule level. Sup-projects are (i) to develop fluorescence-based methods to detect single steps of a motor at nanometer scale, (ii) use this to optimize and characterize the motor as it walks along a defined DNA track.

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

Advancing hyperpolarised solid-state NMR spectroscopy for materials science

This PhD project is open to a wide range of research directions, depending on the interests and abilities of the candidate. The main topic will concern the application and development of methods for advanced NMR investigations of hyperpolarised solids. Read more

Quantum Computing platform with atomic qubits

Quantum computing offers efficient implementation of an important class of algorithms for which their classical counterparts suffer from an exponential growth of computational costs with system size. 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

Topological Physics in Coaxial Cable Networks

An opportunity to become involved in a new area of physics. This project looks at a new physical system for studying topological physics, using networks of radio frequency transmission lines made. 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.
