  A Novel Variable Stiffness Soft Materials for Smart Deployable Structures
  Dr Z Wu, Prof M Gei, Dr Z Ji
Application Deadline: 19 April 2019
This project studies a novel polymeric smart material that possesses variable stiffness properties for the application to tailored actuation devices.
  Novel, rate-sensitive material to reduce head injuries
  Dr P Theobald, Dr S Soe
Application Deadline: 19 April 2019
Head/brain injuries in sport are becoming increasingly commonplace, creating the potential for a societal shift away from ‘risky’ physical activities (e.g.
  “High Voltage Insulation Diagnostics for New Environmentally-Friendly Gas Mixtures”
  Dr A Reid, Prof M Haddad
Application Deadline: 19 April 2019
The project will focus on the early detection of faults in systems insulated with new gas mixtures by measurement and characterization of small electrical discharges knows as “partial discharges”.
  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.
  Deep Learning based Robotic Motion Generation for Manipulating Granular and Viscous Materials
  Dr Z Ji, Dr Y Hicks, Dr J Wu
Application Deadline: 19 April 2019
Granular and viscous media are ubiquitous in our daily life, ranging from food like dough or beans to construction materials like concrete, soils, or sands.
  An experimental investigation of self-healing cementitious composites with active inclusions
  Prof A D Jefferson, Dr I Mihai
Application Deadline: 19 April 2019
Structures formed from cement-based materials have frequently suffered from poor durability, with the result that a great deal of money is spent each year on repairing existing structures.
  Topological composite phononic crystals for advanced engineering applications
  Prof M Gei, Dr L Morini
Application Deadline: 19 April 2019
Mechanical metamaterials are engineered media whose structure gives them novel mechanical properties, including negative Poisson’s ratio, non-conventional bandgap properties and negative refraction.
  A high repetition rate semiconductor quantum dot light source (for the UK National Quantum Computing and Simulation Hub)
  Dr A Bennett, Prof D Huffaker
Application Deadline: 19 April 2019
Photons are ideal carriers of quantum information, being fast, cheap and easy to encode with quantum-information carried in their polarisation, phase, time or path degrees of freedom.
  Development of human soft tissue substitute material
  Prof SL Evans, Dr H Wyatt
Application Deadline: 19 April 2019
Cutting and puncturing of skin occurs regularly in healthcare, for example during surgery, however, there is limited understanding of the biomechanics involved.
  Exploiting graphene and nanodiamond to enhance wear resistance of carbide-basedMaterials by Spark Plasma Sintering
  Dr V Garcia-Rocha, Prof SL Evans
Application Deadline: 19 April 2019
(a) Scientific Excellence. Structural ceramics and their composites play an essential role in engineering. There is a need to find sustainable manufacturing processes to avoid climate change and at the same time ensure the performance and longevity of materials.
