  Fully-funded PhD studentship - III-nitride semiconductors and devices
  Prof T Wang
Application Deadline: 31 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a fully-funded 3.5 year PhD studentship to work on (1) Advanced MOVPE epitaxial growth of novel III-nitride semiconductors and advanced material characterisation (2) Advanced fabrication of the integrated devices combining III-nitride and other III-V semiconductors.
  Nanoplasmonic measurements on biological molecules
  Prof GJ Leggett
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recently we have developed fast, inexpensive, simple routes to nanostructured proteins1 and metals, including macroscopically extended, nanostructured arrays of gold nanoparticles.
  Nanotribological properties of organic surfaces
  Prof GJ Leggett
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Friction is ubiquitous in all sliding contacts. Much energy is dissipated in sliding contacts, and the minimisation of friction can make a significant contribution to the efficient use of fuels.
  Surface analysis of layered polymer brushes
  Prof GJ Leggett
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

One of the most exciting new features on our recently installed state-of-the-art XPS spectrometer is the capacity for depth-profiling of delicate organic polymeric materials.
  Understanding the spin-entangled triplet-pair state in organic semiconductors
  Research Group: Materials Physics
  Dr J Clark
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In collaboration with theoreticians at the University of Oxford, this project involves studying the fundamental electronic behaviour of excited states in organic semiconductors (specifically ‘triplet-pair’ states) for applications in photovoltaics, displays and polaritonics.
  Vibrational Control of Spin-Orbit Coupling
  Research Group: Materials Physics
  Dr J Clark, Prof A Meijer
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ability to optically control the spin of a molecular excited state would have important applications in fields ranging from biomedical imaging to spintronics and quantum computing.
  Understanding The Role of Spin in Organic Polaritonics
  Research Group: Materials Physics
  Dr J Clark
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In organic semiconductors, the spin of the excited-state can vary from S0 to S2. This spin quantum number determines the electronic and photonic properties of the excited-states and device operation.
  Nano-magnetism in atomically thin 2D quantum materials and their heterostructures
  Research Group: Inorganic Semiconductors
  Prof A Tartakovskii
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

Following the discovery of graphene, a large family of layered crystals has attracted significant attention. The properties of these materials range from superconductors and metals, to semiconductors and insulators.
  Single photon emitters in atomically thin 2D semiconductors for quantum technology applications
  Research Group: Inorganic Semiconductors
  Prof A Tartakovskii
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Following the discovery of graphene a large family of layered crystals has attracted significant attention. Surprisingly, single photon emission from unusual defect states was found in several 2D semiconductors called transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs).
  Photonics with atomically-thin 2D quantum materials beyond graphene
  Research Group: Inorganic Semiconductors
  Prof A Tartakovskii
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The isolation of single-atomic layer graphene has led to a surge of interest in a large family of layered crystals with strong in-plane bonds and weak van der Waals interlayer coupling.
