About the Project
This novel research programme is an evidence-based approach to develop anodised coatings that are fit for purpose in terms of key material properties, e.g. corrosion resistance, mechanical robustness, electrical breakdown voltage, coating adherence, and radiation hardness. The morphology and microstructure of the anodised layer will be analysed with various electron microscopy methods. Other techniques will be used to study the composition and surface chemistry of the coatings. The performance of the coatings will be assessed as a function of processing parameters, i.e. time, temperature, pH, and voltage. This experimental data will enable the coating performance to be related to the anodised layer’s microstructure and composition.
This is a 3.5 year project, commencing in October 2020.
Physical Sciences degree with a First Class or Upper Second minimum. Masters at merit or distinction. UK or EU students only. Please note we are not funded for international students.
IELTS Level: 6.5 or above.
Additionally the nature of this work relates to UK security so applicants are considered at the sponsors discretion.
