  • Application Deadline
    Applications accepted all year round
  • Funded PhD Project (European/UK Students Only)
    Funded PhD Project (European/UK Students Only)

Project Description

This PhD project will develop new surfaces for diagnostic devices based on luminescence signal detection. A new approach will be used to make optically surfaces responsive surfaces using near infrared emitting metal complexes. The project is interdisciplinary involving inorganic coordination chemistry, luminescence spectroscopy, surface modification and characterisation with a number of optical techniques.
It is a collaborative project between the groups of Professors Pikramenou (Chemistry, Photophysics) and Zhang (Physics, Metamaterials) at the University of Birmingham.

It is expected that the candidate will have background expertise in Chemistry. The studentship is available to start immediately or the latest by 30th of September 2019.

Interested applicants should contact Prof Pikramenou in the first instance
