Cosmological Modified Gravity simulations with massive sterile neutrinos

This project would involve setting up a large (>100 Mpc) cosmological simulation in the Modified Gravity (MOND) framework, but supplemented with 11 eV sterile neutrinos to make up the same total dark energy and matter density as in the Lambda Cold Dark Matter (ΛCDM) cosmology. Read more

PhD studentship on the Developing and Operating a Trapped Ion Quantum computer Prototype

We recently invented a method where quantum gates with trapped ions are executed by the application of voltages to a microchip in the presence of a few global radiation fields analogous to the operation of transistors in a classical computer. Read more

PhD studentship on the Construction of the first error corrected quantum computer in the UK

A consortium led by. Universal Quantum. , a University of Sussex spin-out company, has been awarded a £7.5m grant from Innovate UK’s Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund to build a scalable quantum computer that can correct its own errors and apply this technology to high-impact problems in the aerospace industry.

Dynamics of massive black hole binaries in dense stellar systems

We are looking for an enthusiastic and strongly motivated candidate to work on a computational project in Galactic dynamics and the modelling of massive black hole binaries as sources of gravitational waves. Read more

Marriages Made in Heaven: the Origin of Multiple Star Systems

CONTEXT. Most high- and intermediate-mass stars are in stable multiple systems, usually binary systems where the two stars pursue elliptical orbits round each other, but quite often higher-order multiples involving three or more stars. Read more

Star clusters and star-forming clouds: finding order in chaos

  Research Group: Cardiff Hub for Astrophysics Research and Technology
CONTEXT. Interstellar clouds, and the star clusters they spawn, are chaotic systems, due to the non-linearity of the processes that drive their evolution -- viz. Read more

Bipolar HII Regions produced by Colliding Clouds

  Research Group: Cardiff Hub for Astrophysics Research and Technology
CONTEXT. When two interstellar clouds collide at high speed, they produce a shock-compressed layer, which becomes gravitationally unstable and fragments, producing a cluster of stars. Read more

The convergence of interstellar filaments and its link to the formation of the most massive stars

  Research Group: Cardiff Hub for Astrophysics Research and Technology
In the past decade filaments have been recognised as a major structural element of the interstellar medium, the densest of these filaments hosting the formation of most stars. Read more

Revealing the Hidden Light: Understanding the cosmic dust and cold gas in nearby galaxies.

  Research Group: Cardiff Hub for Astrophysics Research and Technology
Cosmic dust is often seen as an annoyance by astronomers, with over half the light ever emitted by stars in the Universe having been absorbed by a dust grain. Read more

Do magnetic fields matter when it comes to star cluster formation?

  Research Group: Cardiff Hub for Astrophysics Research and Technology
Stars are the candles of the Universe, they light up every single galaxy allowing us to study their structure across the cosmos. Despite their importance, there are still many aspects of the star formation process that remain poorly constrained. Read more

Direct Dark Matter searches with LZ detector

The Lux-Zeplin (LZ) experiment is searching for mysterious Dark Matter particles using a Time Projection Chamber (TPC) containing 7 tonnes of liquefied xenon as a target material. Read more
