  Atmospheric pressure plasma enhanced chemical vapour deposition of functional thin films.
  Dr D Sawtell, Dr Z Abd-Allah
Applications accepted all year round
Reference Number. EMR-DS-2017-1-PhD. Project Summary. Atmospheric pressure plasma enhanced chemical vapour deposition, AP-PECVD, has great potential as an inexpensive method of producing functional thin films over large surface areas.
  Photocatalytic Thin Films: probing the early antibacterial properties of metallic thin films
  Dr A Chauvet
Applications accepted all year round
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.
  PhD in Chemistry: Flexible thin films for wearable electrochromic displays
  Dr E Draper
Application Deadline: 30 April 2019
We need to replace metals used in our high-end technologies with organic alternatives in order to create a more sustainable future.
  Computational design of polymer thin films for flexible sensor devices
  Dr K Johnston, Dr L Lue
Applications accepted all year round
Ferroelectric (FE) materials offer many useful properties and are employed in various devices, including nonvolatile memory, capacitors, sensors and actuators.
  Magnetic Thin Films for Energy Harvesting
  Dr K Morrison
Applications accepted all year round
The spin Seebeck effect is a newly discovered phenomenon that manifests as the generation of a spin current when a magnetic material is subjected to a temperature gradient.
  Development of graphene-based functional interlayers for efficient, stable and inexpensive next generation photovoltaics
  Prof G Min, Dr Z Li, Dr V Garcia-Rocha
Application Deadline: 19 April 2019
Solar energy is regarded as the cleanest and most reliable energy resource, offering unlimited potential in decarbonising our future energy supply and addressing key societal challenges such as global energy shortage and climate change.
  Iron Oxidation at the atomic scale: an In-situ environmental TEM/STEM study
  Research Group: Condensed Matter Physics
  Dr L Lari, Dr V Lazarov
Application Deadline: 1 October 2019
Fe and Fe-oxide (FeOx) based nanoparticles (NPs) have shown promising applications in physical and medical sciences. These include magnetic storage devices, catalysis, contrast enhancement in magnetic resonance imaging and magnetic hyperthermia.
  Voltage-tuneable magnetoresistive sensors
  Dr G Williams, Dr S Granville
Applications accepted all year round
In this 3-year PhD project, we seek a student to develop a new magnetoresistive sensor with a dynamically-controllable sensing axis.
  Growth of intermetallic compounds by molecular beam epitaxy and their characterization
  Prof S Bühler-Paschen
Applications accepted all year round
Reducing the geometrical dimensionality of a material can lead to new phenomena not expected in the bulk. In addition, a number of measurement techniques are available for thin films that cannot be used on bulk samples.
  Evaluation of spin-orbit torques in thin film magnetic materials and their use in driving topological structures
  Prof R Hicken, Dr P.S Keatley
Application Deadline: 30 April 2019
Joint supervisors. Prof R J Hicken, Dr P S Keatley. External supervisor. Prof K L Livesey (University of Colorado, UCCS). ***. Statement of Research.
