  Cooling mesoscopic electrons down to the quantum limit
  Dr J T Nicholls
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The study of mesoscopic semiconductor devices, where electrons are confined into submicron-sized dots and wires, has been extremely fruitful over the past 25 years.
  Defect structures and spin correlations in disorder-induced quantum spin liquids
  Prof J Goff, Dr L Mangin-Thro
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Entanglement defines the essential non-classical features of quantum mechanics, and long-range entanglement engenders exotic phenomena such as fractional quantum numbers and emergent topological excitations.
  On-chip superconducting microwave cavities for superfluid optomechanics
  Dr X Rojas
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Studying quantum effects in mechanical systems is appealing to both understanding the foundation of quantum theory, and developing applications in quantum technology.
  Probing Quantum States with Nano-Electro-Mechanical Systems (NEMS)
  Dr A Casey
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nano-Electro-Mechanical Systems (NEMS) represent a new key disruptive technology providing potential solutions for research and industry across a wide range of sectors, from Quantum Information processing through physical sensors to biological sensor applications.
  Realizing quantum materials with atomically layered helium films
  Prof J Saunders
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Historically the study of helium has played a central role in condensed matter physics.
  Superconductivity of YbRh2Si2, a candidate topological superconductor
  Prof J Saunders, Dr L Levitin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

YbRh2Si2 is a canonical heavy fermion metal with a field tuned quantum critical point. In recent work we have developed transport measurements on high quality single crystal samples which show it to be a superconductor below 10 mK.
  Topological mesoscopic superfluidity of 3He
  Prof J Saunders
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Superfluid 3He is one of the most exciting and rich condensed matter systems we know. Over the past thirty years its intellectual impact has been felt in areas as diverse as unconventional superconductivity, cosmology and turbulence.
  Tuning correlated electron systems from magnetism to unconventional superconductivity
  Dr P G Niklowitz
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a PhD project in Experimental Condensed Matter Physics. In this project you will explore the rich phase diagrams of strongly correlated electron systems.
