Doctoral research opportunities in science and technology at Sheffield Hallam University

Our research aims to develop innovative, practical solutions to real world problems. We welcome applications for research degree study across our areas of research strength in science and technology. Read more

Treating cancer by targeting the mechanical properties of cells

Breast cancer development is marked by massive increase of matrix fibres around tumor cells, which changes the mechanical properties of the tissue and is used to diagnose tumours by manual palpation. Read more

Fabricating and characterising perovskite polariton devices

A polariton is a quasi-particle created by mixing a photon with an exciton in an optical cavity. These. part-light-part-matter particles form the foundation of the emerging science of polaritonics, and. Read more

Self Assembling Structural Colour

Structural Colour is everywhere in the natural world, from Bird feathers to Butterflies and even. Plants. In this PhD we would like to develop an understanding of how industrial-grade BCPs can be. Read more

Studying triplet excitons in the strong coupling regime.

Polariton chemistry is a rapidly emerging and exciting new research field where light is used to. control chemistry via quantum mechanical strong coupling between photons and electrons. Read more

Mapping Energy Transfer in Time and Space.

  Research Group: Biological Physics
In this project you will optimize and use a newly developed microscopy technique. called stroboSCAT to track excitonic energy transfer in space and time. 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

Strong light-matter interaction in van der Waals 2D materials: discovery of novel quantum states of the matter

  Research Group: Inorganic Semiconductors
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. Read more

Nano-magnetism in atomically thin 2D quantum materials and their heterostructures

  Research Group: Inorganic Semiconductors
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. Read more

Van der Waals 2D materials: optical manifestations of the quantum physics of moiré superlattices

  Research Group: Inorganic Semiconductors
Atomically-thin layers of two-dimensional materials can be assembled in vertical stacks (called ‘heterostructures’), which are held together by relatively weak van der Waals forces, allowing for coupling between monolayer crystals with incommensurate lattices and arbitrary mutual rotation, or ‘twist’. Read more

Sub-wavelength all-dielectric nano-photonics with 2D materials

  Research Group: Inorganic Semiconductors
So far nano-photonics has dealt with dielectric devices relying on confining light in diffraction-limited volumes. Beating the diffraction limit by confining light on sub-wavelength scales has been only possible with plasmonic structures made of nano-structured metal, which unavoidably suffer from large optical losses.
