PhD in glass and glass-ceramic materials for solar energy and environmental applications


Materials and Engineering Research Institute

Prof Paul Bingham Applications accepted all year round Self-Funded PhD Students Only

About the Project

PhD candidates with a passion for materials science, engineering, physics and/or chemistry, applied to the fields of energy and the environment, should apply. The project includes development of advanced glass and glass-ceramic materials; advanced spectroscopy of these new materials using multiple techniques; and multiple applications, including active luminescent materials for solar energy and architectural applications.

The PhD project is available in this important, topical and rewarding field of research and will include:

• New optical materials for solar energy and architectural applications. These include new glasses and glass-ceramics with novel functionality and luminescent properties, for solar energy and new window glass materials for energy-efficient buildings

Students will join Prof. Bingham’s large and vibrant research group within MERI, and will have the opportunity to work in an enjoyable multi-disciplinary environment with access to state-of-the-art analytical and research equipment. Students will also be supported in their personal and professional development, and will be given opportunities to present results at conferences and engage in external links with the group’s UK, European and global collaborators and partners.

Your PhD project will be tailored to meet your personal ambitions and aspirations - please contact Prof. Bingham and we can discuss your interests and goals, and together we can shape a PhD project that is both exciting and challenging, with the potential to deliver real-world impact.
