  Singulus: Advanced Materials Deposition
  Dr J Langer
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Electric field effects can be used to induce changes of the magnetic properties and resulting magnetoresistance effects. This can result in novel approaches where information is not encoded in discrete values and processed in Boolean logic gates but novel neuromorphic computing schemes can be employed.
  Modelling lung deposition of inhaled particles in cystic fibrosis
  Prof O Jensen, Dr A Horsley, Dr C Whitfield
Application Deadline: 9 September 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a genetic disorder that affects the production and clearance of mucus from various organs in the body. In the lungs this causes blockage and thickening of airways, leading to lung damage and early death from respiratory failure.
  Studentship Opportunity in Positive Pulse Plasma Technology
  Dr M Baker
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will focus on the development of new instrumentation and equipment for the thin film and coating sector. It is part of ongoing research at our University providing scientific background to the advanced manufacturing sector.
  Boosting magneto-ionics using ion irradiation and ion implantation
  Mr D RAVELOSONA, Mr J Lahitte
Application Deadline: 1 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The phd student will study new concepts of scalable and low power spintronics devices based on using ion irradiation and ion implantation to enhance magneto-ionic effects.
  Aalto: Ferroelectric strain coupling and gating integration devices for magnetic domain wall motion control
  Prof S van Dijken
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Control of magnetic domain wall motion by electric fields has recently attracted scientific attention because of its potential for energy-efficient magnetic logic and memory devices.
  Two-dimensional materials for Optoelectronic Devices
  Dr N Balakrishnan
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Graphene and two-dimensional (2D) layered materials are hot topic in science and provide a wide range of applications. The family of 2D layered materials includes hexagonal boron nitride (hBN), transition metal dichalcogenides (WS2, MoS2, etc.), metal chalcogenides (InSe, GaSe, GaS, etc.) and many others.
  Magnetic Thin Films for Energy Harvesting
  Dr K Morrison
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The spin Seebeck effect is a newly discovered phenomenon that manifests as the generation of a spin current when a magnetic material is subjected to a temperature gradient.
  Sensitec: Control of strain in magnetoresistive elements and its utilization
  Prof R Lehndorff
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Magnetoresistive (MR) sensors consist of magnetic thin films and micro- to nanostructures. It is important to understand the behaviour of magnetic domain walls in these structures, to be able to optimize the performance of the sensors.
  A New Generation of Terahertz Emitters: Exploiting Electron Spin
  Dr P Nutter, Dr D Graham, Prof T Thomson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recently, the emission of extremely broadband electromagnetic radiation, spanning from the mid- to far-infrared spectral regime and covering the so-called ‘terahertz gap’ in the spectrum, has been observed from ferromagnetic thin-film structures when exposed to femtosecond pulses of light.
