  2D Material Heterostructures and novel Twistronic Devices
  Dr N D M Hine
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Combining high performance and ultra-low power usage is the ultimate goal of materials technology for information processing. This research has led to whole new paradigms including “spintronics” and “valleytronics”.
  Adaptive probabilistic meshless methods for evolutionary systems
  Dr T Sullivan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will develop and implement a new class of numerical solvers for evolving systems such as interacting fluid-structure flows.
  An ultrafast shakedown of defects in diamond using intense infrared pulses
  Dr J Lloyd-Hughes, Prof M E Newton, Dr V Stavros
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Atomic-scale defects contained within crystals of diamond provide fascinating opportunities for fundamental and applied physics, including emerging use in quantum technologies and magnetometry.
  Automation of THz imaging for Medical Diagnosis
  Dr E MacPherson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Are you interested in applying physics to situations that could benefit medical diagnosis?. Terahertz (10^12 Hz, THz) pulsed imaging is a new technique with high resolution (about 20 μm) and has only emerged recently as a potential new clinical tool for medical imaging.
  Band structure measurements in van der Waals heterostructures
  Dr N Wilson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Angle resolved photoemission spectroscopy (ARPES) beautifully reveals the momentum-resolved electronic structure at the surface of crystalline solids.
  Diamond Formation in Giant Ice Planets
  Dr D Gericke
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The internal structure of a planet, that is its radial material and density distribution, is largely defined by hydrostatic equilibrium.
  Electronic and phononic transport in highly heterogeneous nanomaterials and devices
  Dr N Neophytou
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Two thirds of all energy we use is lost into heat during conversion processes, a loss which puts enormous pressure on the planet, the use of fossil fuels, and energy sustainability.
  Gone in a flash: Femtosecond laser ablation of nanostructured alloys
  Dr P Brommer
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Laser ablation, the removal of material with intense light pulses, is an important subtractive manufacturing technique. Femtosecond (10-15 s) laser pulses can result in superior quality of e.g.
  Heterogeneous materials in extreme environments: multiscale models of chemo-mechanical processes
  Dr L Figiel
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Extreme volumetric expansion, high temperature gradients, and/or high-frequency vibrations can compromise structural integrity and safety of modern electronic systems (e.g.
  Investigating the impact of equation of state uncertainties on direct-drive inertial fusion energy simulations
  Dr T Goffrey, Prof T D Arber
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Direct-drive inertial fusion energy1 (IFE) requires high-energy lasers to be focussed on a spherical target. The outer material of the target (usually plastic) ablates, driving an implosion of the core deuterium-tritium (DT) fuel.
  Micro-rheology of active matter
  Dr V Kantsler, Prof R C Ball
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project concerns microrheology of active matter - to study properties of biological microscopic constituents and its complex environment via optical microscopy and microfluidic methods.
  Modelling the compositional variation of the properties of magnetic refrigeration materials
  Prof J Staunton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Refrigeration using magnetic materials has emerged as a promising new, energy efficient and environmentally friendly solid state cooling technology.
  Modelling the extraordinary strength of superalloys
  Dr P Brommer
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The extraordinary strength of superalloys (used e.g. in aeroplane engines) is caused by nanoscale precipitates formed in an ageing process.
  Nanoscale material discovery for thermoelectric energy harvesting and cooling
  Dr H Sadeghi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to exploit electronic and vibrational properties of nanoscale materials that are 1000 times smaller than diameter of a human hair to discover new materials for energy harvesting and cooling in consumer electronics such as mobile phones and laptops.
  Quantum control of a spin in a levitated nanodiamond
  Dr G Morley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Single nitrogen-vacancy (NV-) centres in diamond have isolated electronic and nuclear spins which can store quantum information at room temperature for over one second.
