Showing 1 to 10 of 23
  A source of quantum light for atom magnetometry
  Dr V Boyer
Applications accepted all year round
When using classical light, optical measurements and light-based sensing methods are limited by the unavoidable quantum fluctuations in phase and amplitude, also known as shot noise.
  Advanced THz microscopy for biological applications
  Dr M Navarro-Cia
Applications accepted all year round
Sandwiched between microwaves and infrared in the electromagnetic spectrum, THz radiation (ca. 0.1 – 3 THz) holds promise for medical diagnosis, security applications (chemical fingerprinting and standoff screening) and industrial control processes.
  Asteroseismic data analysis with Kepler, K2, TESS and PLATO
  Prof B Chaplin
Applications accepted all year round
We are offering PhD positions in the Solar and Stellar Physics Group in the analysis of asteroseismic data on the Sun (helioseismology) and Sun-like stars and red giants (asteroseismology).
  Exploring Synthetic Topological Quantum Matter
  Dr H Price
Applications accepted all year round
Topological concepts are reshaping our understanding of physics, allowing us to discover, study and classify new quantum states of matter.
  Jet studies of the quark-gluon plasma with ALICE at the LHC
  Prof P Jones
Applications accepted all year round
Birmingham is one of the founding members of the ALICE collaboration at CERN. The ALICE experiment has been optimised to study collisions of heavy nuclei at the LHC.
  Localising all individual atoms in a nanoparticle in 3D by scanning transmission electron microscopy (STEM) tomography
  Dr W Theis
Applications accepted all year round
We have demonstrated the ability to map all individual atoms in the 3500-atom apex of a tungsten tip. The PhD project involves developping instrumentation and methodology for high-throughput tomography of nanoparticles using the apex of tungsten tips as tomography supports..
  Millimetre-wave metasurface waveguides for high capacity wireless networking technology
  Dr M Navarro-Cia
Applications accepted all year round
The frequency range between 30 GHz and 300 GHz is being considered by all wireless communication stakeholders as the way to realise very high capacity 5G mobile communications in the indoor environment.
  Nanophotonics: theory on the non-classical behaviour of nanoplasmonics
  Dr A Demetriadou
Applications accepted all year round
hen light illuminates nano-sized metallic structures, the free electrons in the metal collectively oscillate, creating `plasmons’.
  PhD Translational Quantum Technology: translating quantum sensors and metrology devices based on atoms as probe particles into real-world applications
  Prof K Bongs
Applications accepted all year round
Quantum technology has been identified by the UK Government as a key area of innovation, moving science into real-world applications.
  Precision measurements of light nuclei at the Birmingham MC40 cyclotron
  Dr C Wheldon
Applications accepted all year round
Birmingham is the only university in the UK with a cyclotron for accelerating nuclei. The Nuclear Physics Group at Birmingham has its own beam-line at the cyclotron for performing experiments.
