Cosmic-Ray Muons in Different Applications

  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
Cosmic-ray muons are known to be useful in applications beyond particle astrophysics. They have helped with mapping structure of volcanoes and with finding voids in various geological structures. Read more

Neutrino Oscillation Study and Proton Decay Search with DUNE

  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
DUNE is a large international project to design, construct and operate a multi-kiloton scale liquid argon detector for neutrino physics, neutrino astrophysics and a search for physics beyond the Standard Model. Read more

Dark Matter Search with the LZ Experiment

  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
LUX-ZEPLIN (LZ) is a project to build and operate a high-sensitivity dark matter experiment in the deep mine at SURF in South Dakota, USA. Read more

Accelerator-based experimental studies of exotic nuclear structures

Applications are invited for a funded studentship leading to a PhD degree in nuclear physics. As a nuclear physics PhD student at Sheffield Hallam University, you will be part of the UK and international nuclear physics community and will participate in experiments at world-leading accelerator facilities. Read more

The Japanese Long-Baseline Neutrino Programme (T2K, SuperKamiokande and HyperKamiokande)

  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
The particle physics and particle astrophysics (PPPA) group at the University of Sheffield has a long-standing involvement in Japan’s long-baseline neutrino programme. Read more

Space Weather Forecast

The term 'Space Weather' refers to the conditions of environment in the vicinity of the Earth and to processes that may initiate far away (for example at the Sun) but can affect the geospace environment. Read more

Jupiter Plasma Environment

It is currently accepted that majority of visible matter in the Universe is in the state of plasma. However, with our present level of technology only the plasma within the solar system can be subjected to in-situ measurements by spacecraft. Read more

Dynamical Processes in the Geo-space Plasma

The terrestrial magnetosphere is formed as a result of the interaction between the magnetic field of the Earth and the solar wind (quasineutral flow of electrons and ions from the Sun). Read more

Identification and classification of coherent flow structures in the plasma of the Sun’s photosphere

The Sun is a star with a cyclic magnetic activity that can impact all the solar system. Thus, the solar magnetic field can interact with the Earth's magnetic field, permitting the entrance of energetic particles in the upper atmosphere, affecting technological devices, telecommunications and human health. Read more

Properties of evolved hot luminous stars from large spectroscopic surveys

  Research Group: Astronomy and Astrophysics
Massive stars are rare, though dominate the radiative, mechanical and chemical feedback in star-forming galaxies. Historically spectroscopic studies of hot massive stars in the Milky Way and nearby galaxies have been restricted to small sample sizes. Read more

Pathways to thermonuclear supernovae

  Research Group: Astronomy and Astrophysics
Thermonuclear supernovae are the result of the explosion of a white dwarf star in a binary system, the most well know of which are the cosmologically important Type Ia supernovae (SN Ia). Read more

Searches for supersymmetry and dark matter particles with the ATLAS experiment

  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
The student will work on the analysis of the data collected by the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider to search for new particles that are postulated by Supersymmetry. Read more
