We have 15 University of Leeds, Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

Real-time gas sensing using terahertz quantum-cascade lasers

  Research Group: School of Electronic & Electrical Engineering
This project will develop fast detection systems to provide the first real-time gas sensing in the terahertz (THz) band of the electromagnetic spectrum. Read more

The Contribution of Lattice Vibrations to Switchable Spin-Crossover Crystals

  Research Group: School of Chemistry
Spin-crossover is a high-spin-to-low-spin transition at a transition metal centre, induced by temperature or pressure. It is common in iron chemistry, but also occurs in some compounds of other common metals. Read more

Modelling of precipitation reactors in the reprocessing of spent nuclear fuel

  Research Group: School of Chemical and Process Engineering
Nuclear power generation is expected to rise to meet increasing UK and global energy demand, whilst maintaining net-zero targets. Read more

An investigation on the tribochemical surface interactions of molten salt reactors

  Research Group: School of Mechanical Engineering
Materials challenges have always been critical for delivering low-carbon energy towards the UK’s goal to reach net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. Read more

Developing a digital twin for validation of packing optimisers used for nuclear decommissioning

  Research Group: School of Chemical and Process Engineering
When sorting and packing nuclear waste items, the current practice typically involves human operators wearing full PPEs and/or remotely controlled robotic arms. Read more

Modular intensified ion exchange utilising agitated tubular reactors

  Research Group: School of Chemical and Process Engineering
As the UK prepares to invest in new nuclear power plants, industry and research organisations are also looking towards developing the next generation of effluent and waste treatment processes. Read more

Preparing Corroded Magnox Fuel Waste for Long Term Storage: Rheology Mapping of Complex Fluids

  Research Group: School of Chemical and Process Engineering
The UK’s nuclear sector is actively undertaking substantial decommissioning projects of its legacy facilities. One key challenge is the safe recovery and processing of waste for long term storage. Read more

Investigating porosity changes and stress mechanics of corroding nuclear wastes under confined expansion

  Research Group: School of Civil Engineering
As the UK prepares to invest in new operational nuclear power plants, industry and research organisations are also looking to decommission the UK’s existing nuclear legacy facilities. Read more

X-Shooter spectroscopy of Massive Young Stellar Objects

  Research Group: School of Physics and Astronomy
The formation of massive stars, stars much more massive than the Sun and which explode as a Supernova at the end of their lives, is still shrouded in mystery. Read more

Chiral Gravitons in Topological Quantum Matter: From Solid-State Materials to Quantum Computers

  Research Group: School of Physics and Astronomy
A major open problem in modern physics is the table-top generation and detection of emergent particles analogous to gravitons. the elusive mediators of gravitational force in a quantum theory of gravity. Read more

Quantum Many-Body Scars and Weak Ergodicity Breaking in Rydberg-Atom Quantum Simulators

  Research Group: School of Physics and Astronomy
A perennial mystery of nature is how order can exist amidst chaos. Familiar systems such as the clock pendulum exhibit regular periodic motion. Read more
