  Theory of energy harvesting using the Spin Seebeck Effect
  Research Group: Inorganic Semiconductors
  Prof G Gehring
Applications accepted all year round
All computer chips get warm when they are used heavily. Those in supercomputers get very warm so that cooling them is a major consideration in their design.
  Vibrational Control of Spin-Orbit Coupling
  Research Group: Materials Physics
  Dr J Clark, Prof A Meijer
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
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
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
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.
  Understanding the spin-entangled triplet-pair state in organic semiconductors.
  Research Group: Materials Physics
  Dr J Clark
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
Singlet fission is a process whereby one photon creates two excited states. This two-for-one mechanism could dramatically increase solar cell efficiency (from 33% to >40%).
  Nano-magnetism in atomically thin 2D quantum materials and their heterostructures
  Research Group: Inorganic Semiconductors
  Prof A Tartakovskii
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
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
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
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
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
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.
  Quantum science and technology with semiconductor nanostructures - investigating nano-confinement phenomena at ultrafast picosecond timescales
  Research Group: Inorganic Semiconductors
  Prof M S Skolnick, Prof M Fox, Dr L Wilson
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
Applications are invited for a PhD position in the quantum science and technology of semiconductor nanostructures.
  PhD position in the field of topological polaritonics - investigating the polaritons in lattices of coupled zero-dimensional microresonators
  Research Group: Inorganic Semiconductors
  Dr D Krizhanovskii
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
Recent advances in semiconductor nano-technology have led to a new generation of robust controllable structures where manipulation of coupling between light and matter can be performed on a sub-micrometer scale.
  Development of quantum computing circuits based on semiconductor quantum dot spins.
  Research Group: Inorganic Semiconductors
  Dr E Chekhovich
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
Quantum information processing is a concept that seeks to exploit quantum effects in constructing computers more powerful than any classical digital computer.
