  A source of quantum light for atom magnetometry
  Dr V Boyer
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Development of high performance calorimetry for future collider experiments
  Prof Nigel Watson
Application Deadline: 1 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Future collider experiments require much higher performance calorimetry than we can build at present.
  Quantum correlations in nanoplasmonics
  Dr A Demetriadou
Application Deadline: 15 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

When light illuminates nano-sized metallic structures, the free electrons in the metal collectively oscillate, creating `plasmons’.
  Quantum Magnetism probed via Magnetic Resonance
  Dr M Chung
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Quantum magnets are one of the simplest quantum many-body systems exhibiting a rich variety of exotic quantum phases and transitions.
  Quantum Plasmonics
  Dr A Demetriadou
Application Deadline: 15 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

When light illuminates nano-sized metallic structures, the free electrons in the metal collectively oscillate, creating `plasmons’.
  Quantum Plasmonics: theory and simulations on the non-locality of nanoplasmonics
  Dr A Demetriadou
Application Deadline: 15 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

When light illuminates nano-sized metallic structures, the free electrons in the metal collectively oscillate, creating `plasmons’.
  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.
  Rare decay physics with B baryons and mesons at LHCb
  Prof Nigel Watson
Application Deadline: 1 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Physics of rare B baryon and meson decays, and charmless decays of B mesons using data from the LHCb experiment at CERN. The project will also involve contributing to the group’s technical responsibility (GEANT4 detector simulation) within LHCb, and possibly to our commitments to the LHCb upgrade.
  Simulation of quantum transport with cold atoms
  Dr V Boyer
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Quantum mechanics is believed to play a role in certain natural processes such as light harvesting. For example certain bacteria are capable of capturing the energy of an incoming photon and transporting the resulting excitation to the reaction centre with great efficiency.
