High Speed Materials for Holographic Head-up Displays using Liquid Crystal on Silicon Spatial Light Modulators

  Research Group: School of Physics and Astronomy
A fully funded industrial project to study novel liquid crystal materials and device approaches for use in Liquid Crystal on Silicon Spatial Light Modulators, used in Head up displays for the automotive sector. Read more

High performance regenerated silk fibres with biomimetic structure

Natural silk is a remarkable natural fibre produced by silkworms, spiders and other arthropods. For example, spider silk is the strongest known natural fibre, with a toughness that exceeds Kevlar. Read more

Tuneable plasmonic metamaterials

The project. The development of new plasmonic metamaterials is important for a wide range of applications such as biomedical imaging, molecular sensing and analysis, environmental monitoring, photo-catalysis, broadband light trapping, photovoltaics, and electrochromic devices. Read more

Electrodeposited nano-structured coatings for nuclear industry applications

The project. Electrodeposition can deliver high quality nano-structured coatings at very low cost. It operates at ambient temperatures and pressures, and has the further advantage that it can coat components with complex geometries, because deposition takes place wherever the surface is exposed to electrolyte. Read more

From maximal to minimal dissipation. A new paradigm in superconductivity

The project. A new class of superconducting materials has emerged that host a metallic (resistive) state that fails to conform to the standard models of metallic behaviour, displaying strong signatures of incoherent transport. Read more

The fabrication and application of high temperature materials using acoustic levitation

The project. The fabrication and application of high temperature materials using acoustic levitation. Glasses are used in a wide range of technological applications for example, in windows, fibre optic cables, lasers and sensors. Read more

Heavy fermion thin films

The project. Bulk crystals can display heavy fermion behaviour, where the effective mass of mobile carriers can be up to 1000 times larger than the bare electron mass due to electron-electron interactions. Read more

Thermal and mechanical properties of ceramic composites

The project. SiC-based ceramic-Matrix Composites (CMCs) are considered to be one of the prime structural materials to replace metals for certain applications in harsh environments in nuclear fission and fusion reactors. Read more

PhD in ultra-wide bandgap semiconductor Ga2O3 MOCVD growth and power devices for enabling a zero carbon emission society

The project. The imminent climate risks for our planet have been highlighted by UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) calling it "code red for humanity" in its scientific report in August 2021. Read more

PhD Studentship in Wearable Biosensors.

PhD Studentship in ‘wearable biosensors’. Project Supervisor: Dr Sara Ghoreishizadeh (. s.ghoreishizadeh@ucl.ac.uk. ). Dept Electronic and Electrical Engineering / University College London. Read more

Learning from historical cement sample stores

The Cements@Sheffield group in the Department of Materials Science & Engineering, University of Sheffield, is recruiting a PhD student to join us for a project funded by the UK’s Nuclear Decommissioning Authority. Read more

Development of Systems Modelling Methods for Aerodynamic Control in Very Low Earth Orbits

Operation of spacecraft in very low Earth orbits (VLEO), those below 450 km in altitude, is generally avoided due to the significantly increased atmospheric density and therefore aerodynamic drag that either requires propulsive compensation or can critically limit the operational lifetime of the satellite.
