Quantum science and technology with semiconductor nanostructures - investigating nano-confinement phenomena at ultrafast picosecond timescales

About This PhD Project

Project Description

Applications are invited for a PhD position in the quantum science and technology of semiconductor nanostructures. Our research is carried out in very well equipped laboratories (see and seeks to observe new quantum physics and applications in specially designed and engineered nanostructures. Our research is based on III-V semiconductor nanostructures where we have world class fabrication facilities ( The PhD project will focus on new quantum optical phenomena enabled by nano-confinement, including spin-controlled propagation of single photons, and game-changing modifications to spontaneous emission processes, all performed at ultrafast picosecond timescales.

Science Graduate School:
As a PhD student in one of the science departments at the University of Sheffield, you’ll be part of the Science Graduate School – a community of postgraduate researchers working across biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics and psychology. You’ll get access to training opportunities designed to support your career development by helping you gain professional skills that are essential in all areas of science. You’ll be able to learn how to recognise good research and research behaviour, improve your communication abilities and experience technologies that are used in academia, industry and many related careers.
