  3D Nanostructured Thermoelectric Materials
  Research Group: Condensed Matter and Photonics
  Dr S Ladak, Prof G Min
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The world’s energy consumption is reaching 16 terawatts and is predicted to triple by 2050 [1]. Meeting this huge demand along with great concerns over climate change has now led to an urgency for the development of cleaner and renewable energy sources.
  A Manufacturing Process Simulator for VCSELs
  Research Group: Condensed Matter and Photonics
  Prof P M Smowton, Dr S Shutts
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The student will develop a simulation to predict the manufacturing performance and critical tolerances of epitaxial layer material including compositions, doping and layer thicknesses, using quantum mechanical and optical mode solvers, based on device performance and in-situ reactor characterisation and ex-situ characterisation of vertical cavity surface emitting lasers.
  A multi-scale computational model of brain blood flow: enhancing MRI for assessing brain health
  Research Group: Brain Imaging
  Prof K Murphy, Prof RG Wise
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project is well suited to students who would like to combine their knowledge of computational modelling, physics and mathematics to better understand human brain blood flow and how it can go wrong with brain disease.
  Controlled coherent coupling of single quantum dots in photonic crystal cavity networks
  Research Group: Condensed Matter and Photonics
  Prof W W Langbein, Dr E Muljarov, Dr D Beggs
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The proposed project spans from the field of optical spectroscopy of semiconductor nanostructures, specifically coherent spectroscopy of single quantum dots, to quantum computing, specifically the implementation of quantum operations in quantum dots.
  Development of a nanostructured heating element to explore high temperature materials physics
  Research Group: Condensed Matter and Photonics
  Dr S Ladak, Prof O Williams
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Three-dimensional lithography upon the 100nm-scale is now having a pronounced impact across a range of scientific disciplines.
  Energy Harvesting for Autonomous Systems
  Research Group: Condensed Matter and Photonics
  Prof P M Smowton, Prof G Min
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Internet of Things (IoT) is an exciting global megatrend and UK government priority area, which if to be realised, requires the development of a number of key enabling technologies with potentially huge scientific and market value.
  Infrared Thermophotovoltaic (TPV) cell for power generation and energy harvesting
  Research Group: Condensed Matter and Photonics
  Dr M Kesaria, Prof G Min, Prof D Huffaker
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Limited energy resources and pressures of global warming require industry to reduce its net-energy or “carbon footprint”. Given that >60% of energy in manufacturing is wasted as heat has triggered interest in thermal-energy scavenging for temperatures.
  Novel nanocavities in wide bandgap semiconductors for quantum optical devices
  Research Group: Condensed Matter and Photonics
  Dr D Beggs, Dr A Bennett
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nanoscale cavities change the optical density of states for localised emitters in semiconductors, changing their optical properties.
  Optical decoherence and coherent coupling of excitons in quantum dots embedded in photonic cavities
  Research Group: Condensed Matter and Photonics
  Dr E Muljarov, Prof W W Langbein
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project in theoretical physics aims to study the coherent dynamics of optical excitations (excitons) in single and multiple semiconductor quantum dots (QDs) strongly coupled to photonic cavities.
  Quantum coherence and carrier dynamics in colloidal nanostructures from dots to 1D and 2D materials
  Research Group: Condensed Matter and Photonics
  Prof W W Langbein, Prof P Borri, Dr E Muljarov
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Colloidal nanostructures such as semiconductor quantum dots are relatively simple to manufacture, widely tuneable in shape and size and can be made of a large range of materials.
