Material characterization for Polymer Display Liquid Crystal for Building Energy Efficiency application, Renewable Energy, University of Exeter – PhD (Funded)


Project Description

Project Description:

The project is a part of recently funded EPSRC project entitled Advanced Building Façade Design for Optimal Delivery of End Use Energy Demand. This college funded studentship aims to develop, synthesise and characterise inorganic materials for the application into solar powered smart glazing systems. The development of smart glazing plays a significant contribution to reduce the energy consumption of the buildings. Inhouse develop integration strategies will be undertaken for device level system integration and synthesis of the molecules to enhance their transmission through wide range of solar spectrum. Inorganic materials will be tuned through various processes to optimise solar spectrum for reducing their absorption, colour rendering and increase visual impacts. Manipulation of morphological structure and its effect to the overall efficiency of the devices will be characterised through A+A+A+ solar simulators in the University. In addition, the materials will be characterised through SEM, TEM, XRD for optimising its properties.

Applicants for this studentship must have obtained, or be about to obtain, a First or Upper Second Class UK Honours degree, or Masters or the equivalent qualifications gained outside the UK, in Inorganic Chemistry, Material Science, Chemical or Physical Sciences or appropriate background from Engineering.

Location: Environment & Sustainability Institute, Renewable Energy, Cornwall Campus

Funding Notes

For all students the award will cover the International/UK/EU tuition fees in full, plus at least £15,009 per year tax-free stipend as per Research Council rate in 2019/2020. The studentship will be awarded on the basis of merit for 3.5 years of full-time study to commence in January 2020.
