  Plasma-Enhanced Pulsed Laser Deposition of metal-oxynitride thin films for photoelectrochemical water splitting to enable a hydrogen economy.
  Research Group: York Plasma Institute
  Dr E Wagenaars
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The hydrogen economy, the use of hydrogen as a clean fuel, is under development as a part of the future low-carbon economy. An important part of this is the efficient and cheap production of hydrogen.
  Photocatalytic Thin Films: probing the early antibacterial properties of metallic thin films
  Dr A Chauvet
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Have you ever wondered about self-cleaning surfaces. an object that cleanse itself just by shining light on it? Such technology already exists, and the field is fast developing.
  Mapping oxidation state and crystallisation dynamics in metal oxide thin films for catalysts and energy storage devices
  Prof A O'Mullane, Dr M Jones
Application Deadline: 30 September 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Understanding the heterogeneous chemical and structural changes that occur in thin metal oxide films when used as catalysts for water splitting to produce hydrogen is critical for the development of more efficient materials.
  Exposing the nanoscale ultrafast dynamics of Dirac systems via near-field terahertz spectroscopy
  Dr J Boland
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

To create energy-efficient, faster ’21st century devices’ that can impact a range of sectors, including healthcare, wireless communication, defence, security and clean energy, integrated photonic, electronic and quantum technologies are essential.
  Marie Sklodowska–Curie Innovative Training Network Early Stage Researcher on the development of chiral optoelectronic devices
  Prof A Campbell, Prof M Fuchter
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

An H2020 Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions funded PhD studentship position in organic chiral optoelectronic devices is available in the Department of Physics at Imperial College, London.
  Size effects in pure and alloyed metals under dynamic loading
  Dr B. Gurrutxaga-Lerma
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The strength of metals and metallic alloys is usually thought to be independent of the system’s geometry and dimensions. However, at the micron scale this ceases to be true.
  Spin Waves Dynamics for Spintronic Computational Devices
  Prof T Thomson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Spin waves (magnons) are fundamental excitations found in magnetically ordered materials. Recently spin wave phenomena have been proposed as a new paradigm for dedicated computational tasks due to the inherently low energy of this type of excitation.
