About the Project
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.
