The University of Bath is inviting applications for the following PhD project supervised by Dr Steven Andrews https://researchportal.bath.ac.uk/en/persons/steven-andrews in the Department of Physics.
  Quantum simulations with Bose-Einstein Condensates
  Dr G Barontini
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We use modern techniques of laser cooling and magnetic and optical trapping to reach the lowest temperatures in the universe – just a few billionths of a degree above absolute zero – in very dilute atomic samples.
  Novel Camera Technology for Imaging of Cell Collectives - Start date: 1st October 2019
  Prof D Faccio
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The University of Glasgow (UofG) is home to world-leading research in the fields of imaging and computing science. UofG is also home to the UK Hub for Quantum Imaging Technologies, QuantIC (https://quantic.ac.uk/) who are co-funding this PhD research project in collaboration with a Horiba.

  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
  Prof E Daw
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The gravitational wave research group at Sheffield partakes in a variety of research as a member group of the LIGO Scientific Collaboration.
  Nano-magnetism in atomically thin 2D quantum materials and their heterostructures
  Research Group: Inorganic Semiconductors
  Prof A Tartakovskii
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Following the discovery of graphene, a large family of layered crystals has attracted significant attention. The properties of these materials range from superconductors and metals, to semiconductors and insulators.
  Nanoscale quantum physics and quantum information processing with electrons and atoms in semiconductor quantum dots
  Research Group: Inorganic Semiconductors
  Dr E Chekhovich
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nanoscale semiconductor structures have attracted considerable attention for potential applications in quantum information processing, energy harvesting, and photonic devices.
  PhD position in the field of nonlinear and quantum optics with polaritons in semiconductor nanostructures
  Research Group: Inorganic Semiconductors
  Dr D Krizhanovskii
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recent advances in semiconductor nano-technology lead to a new generation of robust controllable structures where manipulation of coupling between light and matter can be performed on a submicrometer scale.
  Strong light-matter interaction in van der Waals 2D materials: discovery of novel quantum states of the matter
  Research Group: Inorganic Semiconductors
  Prof A Tartakovskii
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The isolation of single-atomic layer graphene has led to a surge of interest in a large family of layered crystals with strong in-plane bonds and weak van der Waals interlayer coupling.
  Sub-wavelength all-dielectric nano-photonics: 2D materials and beyond
  Research Group: Inorganic Semiconductors
  Prof A Tartakovskii
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

So far nano-photonics has dealt with dielectric devices relying on confining light in diffraction-limited volumes. Beating the diffraction limit by confining light on sub-wavelength scales has been only possible with plasmonic structures made of nano-structured metal, which unavoidably suffer from large optical losses.
  Van der Waals 2D materials: optical manifestations of the quantum physics of moiré superlattices
  Research Group: Inorganic Semiconductors
  Prof A Tartakovskii
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Atomically-thin layers of two-dimensional materials can be assembled in vertical stacks (called ‘heterostructures’), which are held together by relatively weak van der Waals forces, allowing for coupling between monolayer crystals with incommensurate lattices and arbitrary mutual rotation, or ‘twist’.
  Fundamental Excitations of monolayer 2D Semiconductors
  Research Group: Quantum, Light & Matter
  Prof D Smith
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type
