  EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Delivering Quantum Technologies

Funding Type

PhD Type

4-year PhD programme in quantum technology and quantum systems engineering. • Quantum technologies involve control and manipulation of quantum states to achieve results not possible with classical matter, transforming measurement, communication and computation.
  Nano-magnetism in atomically thin 2D quantum materials and their heterostructures
  Research Group: Inorganic Semiconductors
  Prof A Tartakovskii
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Following the discovery of graphene, a large family of layered crystals has attracted significant attention. The properties of these materials range from superconductors and metals, to semiconductors and insulators.
  Strong light-matter interaction in van der Waals 2D materials: discovery of novel quantum states of the matter
  Research Group: Inorganic Semiconductors
  Prof A Tartakovskii
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The isolation of single-atomic layer graphene has led to a surge of interest in a large family of layered crystals with strong in-plane bonds and weak van der Waals interlayer coupling.
  Sub-wavelength all-dielectric nano-photonics: 2D materials and beyond
  Research Group: Inorganic Semiconductors
  Prof A Tartakovskii
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

So far nano-photonics has dealt with dielectric devices relying on confining light in diffraction-limited volumes. Beating the diffraction limit by confining light on sub-wavelength scales has been only possible with plasmonic structures made of nano-structured metal, which unavoidably suffer from large optical losses.
  Van der Waals 2D materials: optical manifestations of the quantum physics of moiré superlattices
  Research Group: Inorganic Semiconductors
  Prof A Tartakovskii
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Atomically-thin layers of two-dimensional materials can be assembled in vertical stacks (called ‘heterostructures’), which are held together by relatively weak van der Waals forces, allowing for coupling between monolayer crystals with incommensurate lattices and arbitrary mutual rotation, or ‘twist’.
  Nonlinear mechanics of soft solids undergoing large deformation
  Dr P Saxena
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Solid materials that can undergo large deformations are ubiquitous in nature and are widely used to manufacture engineering components.
  High Speed Additive Manufacturing of Ceramic/Metal Multi-material Structures
  Dr D Engstrom
Applications accepted all year round

Reference number. DEUF2019. Start date of studentship. 1 October 2019, 1 January 2020 or 1 April 2020. Interview date. TBC. Supervisors.
  Chemical control of vibronic coupling for magnetic materials (Computational)
  Dr N Chilton, Dr J Skelton
Application Deadline: 31 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Coupling of molecular vibrations to electronic states (vibronic coupling) is a fundamental process that affects the outcome of chemical reactions and physical processes, but it is remarkable how little we know about it.
  Chemical control of vibronic coupling for magnetic materials (Experimental)
  Dr N Chilton, Prof E McInnes
Application Deadline: 31 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

  Chemical control of vibronic coupling for optical materials
  Dr N Chilton, Dr J Skelton
Application Deadline: 31 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Vibronic coupling is the connection between molecular vibrations and the electronic states, and has a pervasive influence throughout chemistry, for instance in photosynthesis, catalysis, magnetism and even organic chemistry.
