Project Description

This scholarship is funded by Johnson Matthey Technology Centre (JMTC) and Swansea University’s College of Engineering/EPSRC.

Subject areas: Nanotechnology, Engineering, Physics, Chemistry, Materials Science

Start date: October 2019

Project description: Nanoparticle beam deposition represents a radical new approach to the environmentally-friendly synthesis of nanoparticles for catalysis and biomedicine. The method is solvent- and thus effluent-free and avoids toxic salts, and satisfies the growing demand for sustainable manufacturing of advanced materials. The Nanomaterials Lab at Swansea is world leader in the scale up this approach from the previous microgram level to the gram+ level, enabling frontier R&D of great interest to chemical companies. The project will be a collaboration with the Johnson Matthey Technology Centre (JMTC), Reading, and will focus on the discovery of next generation materials for selective catalysis and battery applications. The project will require a student with strong experimental skills and confidence, and will also interface to collaborating theory groups.

Project supervisors: Professor R E Palmer (Swansea), Dr P Bishop (JMTC)

Available resources/facilities: Swansea: 4 nanocluster beam sources, high resolution TEM, XPS and SPM JMTC: advanced facilities for chemical testing, imaging, spectroscopy and analysis
