Gamma-ray spectroscopy of neutron-rich zirconium nuclei

Applications are invited for an STFC funded studentship leading to the degree of PhD in nuclear physics. As a nuclear physics PhD student at Brighton, you will be part of the UK and international community and will participate in and lead experiments at world-leading experimental facilities. Read more

DTA: Mapping the radiation tolerance and local mechanics of heterogeneous Reactor Pressure Vessel steels

  Research Group: Metallurgy and Corrosion
The aim of the project is to evaluate the impact of the local microstructure on the radiation damage and mechanical performance of neutron-irradiated Reactor Pressure Vessels (RPV) steels at relevant reactor conditions and in the bulk microstructure, with sufficient spatial resolution and chemical sensitivity to identify local changes in chemistry, phases, microstructure and plasticity/hardening.

Neutron activation analysis for heritage science (2021SC45)

The University of the West of Scotland (UWS) is seeking to attract a PhD candidate of outstanding ability and commitment to join its vibrant and growing programme of internationally excellent research. Read more

In situ gas analysis in interim spent fuel containers

  Research Group: The University of Manchester Projects
Interim dry storage is being proposed or considered for a large part of the UK’s spent fuel inventory. The fuel will be stored for several decades pending disposal in a geological repository. Read more

Hydrogen Ventilation in a Geological Disposal Facility

The aim of this project is to predict the behaviour of slowly-released buoyant gasses in a Geological Disposal Facility (GDF) and inform the design of ventilation for such facilities. Read more

Range verification in proton beam therapy through prompt gamma-ray imaging

The beauty of proton therapy over x-ray therapy is that the majority of protons stop within the patient. The problem lies in the fact that we cannot tell, with a great degree of accuracy, exactly where they stop !. Read more

Characterization of Vacancy-Related Point Defects in Nuclear Materials

The importance of both Fusion and Fission Nuclear Energy Technologies is growing. The materials used must be resilient to high levels of typically neutron and gamma-ray radiation. Read more
