About This PhD Project

Project Description

Gas plasmas generate reactive environments at low temperature that can trigger chemical and bio-chemical processes that are hard to initiate by other means. Semiconductor fabrication, large area displays and energy-efficient lighting are examples of technologies that have been enabled by advances in nonthermal plasma physics and engineering.
In recent years, the advance of atmospheric-pressure nonthermal plasmas has revolutionized the field of technological plasmas as they eliminate the need for vacuum systems and open the possibility of novel processing of liquids and biological specimens that were not possible in the past.
In this project, you will be joining a multi-disciplinary team of academics, researchers and students at the Plasma and Pulsed Power Group, the Centre for Biological Engineering and the Doctoral Training Centre on Gas Plasma Interactions with Organic Liquids, who work closely together to develop novel nonthermal plasma technologies for emerging and rapidly growing applications such as water purification, green chemistry, plasma medicine and plasma agriculture.

Entry requirements

- Applicants should have, or expect to achieve, at least a 2:1 Honours degree (or equivalent) in a relevant Engineering or Science discipline.
- An appetite and aptitude for interdisciplinary research is essential, as well as good communication and experimental or computational skills. Multi-disciplinary training will be provided, and the student will join chemists, engineers, physicists and mathematicians working in related interdisciplinary research.
- A relevant Master's degree and / or experience in one or more of the following will be an advantage: Plasma physics, Organic chemistry, Power electronics, Microbiology, Computational Physics.
