About the Project
The aim of the PhD will be to synthesise novel MONs which you will then optimise in terms of dimensional uniformity and defect density, by first pioneering a novel characterisation technique for MONs. Secondary electron spectroscopy and Energy-filtered scanning electron microscopy (EFSEM) is being developed at Sheffield and was already demonstrated to provide chemical mapping with subnanometer resolution. You will adapt this method for the characterisation of MONs. The insights gained from your studies will enable the development of new catalysts, sensors and photovoltaic devices.
The work will be co-supervised by Dr Cornelia Rodenburg in the department of Materials Science and Engineering and could be suitable for a student with a chemistry, materials science, physics or related background. The student will be supported throughout the project with training, mentoring and career development opportunities.
