  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
Applications accepted all year round

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
  Prof W W Langbein, Prof P Borri, Dr E Muljarov
Applications accepted all year round

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.
  Controlled coherent coupling of single quantum dots in photonic crystal cavity networks
  Prof W W Langbein, Dr E Muljarov, Dr D Beggs
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

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.
  Direct observation of the structure and function of cooperatively assembled membrane spanning pores formed by antimicrobial peptides
  Dr O Castell, Dr Y Jin, Prof A Jones, Dr PD Watson
Application Deadline: 5 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will combine multiple single molecule imaging techniques applied to model membranes [1] to study the mechanisms of peptide interaction of established and novel AMPs.
  Unravelling the dynamics of lipid bilayers and membrane proteins and their reaction to toxins and viral infection on the single molecule level using label-free microscopy.
  Prof W W Langbein, Prof P Borri, Dr MY Young, Dr O Castell
Application Deadline: 5 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Approximately 30% of the proteins in a cell are membrane proteins, which represent more than 60% of all known drug targets and play a critical role in both infection and immunity.
  A light source for quantum computing and simulation
  Dr A Bennett
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

3.5 years October 2020. We seek a motivated PhD student to work on semiconductor quantum light sources. Light is an ideal carrier of quantum information as photons are fast, cheap and easy to encode with quantum-bits carried in their polarisation, phase, time or path degrees of freedom.
