  Tensorial Impedance Surfaces for Antennas
  Prof A P Hibbins, Dr S Horsley, Prof J R Sambles
Application Deadline: 20 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The studentship is part of the UK’s Centre of Doctoral Training in Metamaterials (XM2) based in the Departments of Physics and Engineering on the Streatham Campus in Exeter.
  Engineering laser beams for novel interaction with materials and enhanced application functionality
  Prof G Dearden, Dr S Edwardson
Application Deadline: 1 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project will investigate optical techniques for modulating and manipulating light from solid-state pulsed lasers operating in the nanosecond, picosecond and femtosecond regime, and applying these to explore novel mechanisms of interaction with engineering materials.
  Data Analytics For Pore Water Pressure - New Tools For Sustainable Groundwater and Engineering Projects
  Prof W Timms
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This new PhD scholarship will develop advanced pore pressure analysis for groundwater systems with engineering applications in civil construction, mining operations and water supply systems.
  Leeds I: Interaction of surface acoustic waves and magnetic thin films
  Dr T A Moore, Prof J E Cunningham
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A promising route to low-power nanomagnetic data storage and computing devices is to apply a voltage to a piezoelectric material that exerts strain on an adjacent magnetic thin film and manipulates its properties via magnetoelasticity.
  Time-domain characterization of Terahertz surface scattering and inhomogeneous media for communication and remote sensing
  Dr M Navarro-Cia, Dr C Constantinou
Application Deadline: 3 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The frequency range between 0.1 and 3 THz holds promise for a myriad of applications such as high-speed communication and remote sensing.
  Two-dimensional layered materials as catalysts for fine chemical production
  Dr C D'Agostino
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Catalysts are substances that can speed up chemical reactions and/or increase reaction selectivity without consuming themselves. Relative to non-catalytic processes, catalysed reactions perform through more energy efficient routes, in which reactants are able to be used more efficiently.
  Characterisation of confocal microscopy for surface topography measurement
  Prof R Leach
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Imaging confocal microscopy (ICM) is increasingly being applied for surface texture measurement of advanced manufactured components, including those for additive manufacturing.
  Doctor of Engineering (EngD) - Optical sensors for monitoring and control of ultra-short pulsed laser manufacturing processes (MTC)
  Prof D Reid, Prof D P Hand
Application Deadline: 30 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project not available to non UK/EU applicants. The EngD is an alternative to a traditional PhD aimed at students wanting a career in industry.
  Novel Smart Materials to Control Liquids (Advert Reference: SF19/EE/MPEE/McHALE)
  Prof G McHale, Dr G Wells
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Materials properties are fundamental to how liquids interact with them to control physical processes from water repellency to icing.
  LNG sloshing and Leidenfrost droplet dynamics – modelling gas-cushioned liquid-solid impacts with phase change
  Dr P D Hicks, Dr M N Campbell-Bannerman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The impact of liquefied natural gas (LNG) with the walls of its containing tank and the impact of droplets with very hot surfaces are two examples of liquid-solid impacts in which the liquid may be close to thermodynamic equilibrium with the surrounding gas/vapour.
  Doctor of Engineering (EngD): Active 2-dimensional optical meta-surfaces (STMicroelectronics (R&D) Ltd)
  Prof D Reid, Dr X Chen
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Description. The market for high contrast diffractive gratings is growing rapidly as active sensing of 3D scenes becomes a dominant feature in modern consumer electronics.
  3D Vision for Robots with Photonic Chip Interferometers (SAM10)
  Prof J Huntley, Dr P Ruiz
Application Deadline: 14 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Loughborough University is a top-ten rated university in England for research intensity (REF2014). In choosing Loughborough for your research, you’ll work alongside academics who are leaders in their field.
  Dynamics of complex fluids on Slippery Liquid Infused Substrates (SLIPS) (Advert Reference: FAC19/EE/MPEE/SEMPREBON)
  Dr C Semprebon, Dr G Wells
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

When a liquid comes into contact with a solid surface, its interface can be pinned by surface texture, giving rise to the ubiquitous phenomenon of the contact angle hysteresis [1].
