Cosmic-Ray Muons in Different Applications

Department of Physics and Astronomy

Prof Vitaly Kudryavtsev Applications accepted all year round Competition Funded PhD Project (Students Worldwide)
Sheffield United Kingdom Astrophysics Geophysics Nuclear Physics Particle Physics

About the Project

Cosmic-ray muons are known to be useful in applications beyond particle astrophysics. They have helped with mapping structure of volcanoes and with finding voids in various geological structures. Other possible applications include studies of geological repositories including monitoring carbon capture, tracing illicit nuclear materials etc. The Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics (PPPA) group at the University of Sheffield, in collaboration with other institutions and industrial partners, pursues a wide programme related to these muon applications. This PhD project is computational and offers an opportunity for a student to apply the knowledge of particle and astroparticle physics and detector technology in other areas which are linked to key issues of the contemporary world: climate change, nuclear security etc. The candidate should have a good knowledge of particle physics and programming skills. The knowledge of particle astrophysics and nuclear physics is desirable.
