  Singulus: Advanced Materials Deposition
  Dr J Langer
Application Deadline: 21 February 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.
  Hyperpolarized NMR Spectroscopy
  Prof M Levitt
Application Deadline: 8 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Prof Malcolm H Levitt. Co-supervisor Prof M Utz. Project description.
  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.

  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
