About the Project
In this project, the student will be trained in synthesising CIZS QDs through continuous flow or heterogeneous  synthesis approach which are considered as the most promising techniques for fabrication large-scale colloidal QDs. Moreover, we will use the state-of-the-art laser micro-spectroscopy and ultrafast optical spectroscopy setups  to investigate the emission line-shape  and carrier dynamics of ensembles and single dots.
The student will also develop experimental skills and knowledge in optics & lasers by using femtosecond lasers systems and a complex optical setup, develop skills in programming by adapting the software to control the experiment, and perform data analysis and modelling using the knowledge on the physical processes involved.
Start date: April, July or October 2021. 4 years Full Time.
How to Apply:
Applicants should submit an application for postgraduate study via the Cardiff University webpages (https://www.cardiff.ac.uk/study/postgraduate/research/programmes/programme/physics-and-astronomy) including:
• an upload of your CV
• a personal statement/covering letter
• two references
• Current academic transcripts
Applicants should select Doctor of Philosophy, with a start date of April, July or October 2021.
In the research proposal section of your application, please specify the project title and supervisors of this project and copy the project description in the text box provided. In the funding section, please select the ’self -funding’ option.
Candidates should hold a good bachelor’s degree (first or upper second-class honours degree) or a MSc degree in Physics or a related subject.
Applicants whose first language is not English will be required to demonstrate proficiency in the English language (IELTS 6.5 or equivalent).
This PhD position is opening for self-funded student only, which means the candidate with own funding to cover the living cost and tuition fees will be considered.
