Towards the Electronic Nose with Liquid Crystal Droplets

  Research Group: School of Physics and Astronomy
Liquid crystals are a good example of the use of soft-matter in electronic device applications, often for displays but also in optical films, spatial light modulators, switchable lenses and an increasing variety of applications. Read more

Quantum Communications at Short and Long Distances

  Research Group: School of Electronic & Electrical Engineering
Quantum technologies are expected to offer new computational and communication services. In particular, in order for future quantum computers to be able to talk to each other, new quantum communications protocols need to be devised and implemented. Read more

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

Topological insulator plasmonics

  Research Group: School of Electronic & Electrical Engineering
Topological insulators (TIs) are a new type of material that has recently been discovered. They have highly conductive surface states, while their bulk remains insulating. Read more

Pushing the Resolution Limits of High-Speed Atomic Force Microscopy

  Research Group: School of Physics and Astronomy
Understanding the structural dynamics of complex molecules is vital to advancing our knowledge of materials, medicine and diseases, yet there are few techniques which can capture motions at high enough speeds or resolution to understand the underlying behaviour. Read more

Mapping the nanoscale organisation of cellular proteins across complex topographies

  Research Group: School of Physics and Astronomy
Super-resolution fluorescence microscopy techniques make it possible to visualise nanoscale structures in cells, by going beyond the capabilities of conventional microscopy. Read more

Developing a high-speed fluorescence imaging flow cytometer

  Research Group: School of Physics and Astronomy
Flow cytometry is routinely used as a high-throughput method for characterising and screening cells in biology and medicine. This ranges from identification of suitable drug treatments for patients diagnosed with cancer to biophysical studies of cells with rare (1 in a million) structures or protein expression profiles.

Seeing the Northern Lights at the equator? Predicting the next reversal of Earth’s magnetic field

The geomagnetic field is a fundamental part of planet Earth, existing for at least 3.5 billion years. Yet far from being a constant, the field is very dynamic, exhibiting slow fluctuations and wandering magnetic poles which occasionally fully reverse in polarity. Read more

The role of aerosol radiative effects in the global carbon budget

This exciting project will address the global carbon cycle budget imbalance term by using state-of-the-art global models and observations to comprehensively analyse the role of aerosol radiative effects on the land carbon sink. Read more

Arctic climate change: the vital role of pollution and climate feedbacks

The climate of the Arctic is changing faster than any other region of the planet. Although greenhouse gases are the main driver of global warming, the accelerating rise in Arctic surface temperature, and seasonal loss of sea ice, have a more complex explanation. Read more
