PhD programme in Physics

The PhD involves the completion of an original, scholarly piece of research. The courses available within the PhD programme in physics are in form of lectures, classes, seminars, tutorials, computer labs and others. Read more

Photonic simulators of quantum mechanics and solid-state physics

Photonic systems offer a highly-controllable platform for the exploration of universal wave phenomena. In this PhD project, you will experimentally and theoretically investigate the use of optical fibre resonators for simulating dynamical wave phenomena at the frontiers of quantum and mechanics and solid-state physics.

PhD in flexible perovskite photovoltaics

Do you want to be part of the coming solar revolution? This PhD is perfect for you!. Metal halide perovskites have emerged as a new class of semiconductor having important applications in next generation solar-cells. Read more

Novel physics in 2D materials probed in optical spectroscopy with deep sub-diffraction resolution: PhD at the new state-of-the-art £1.5M spectroscopy centre in Sheffield

Atomically-thin layers of two-dimensional (2D) 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 arbitrary lattice constants and mutual rotation, or ‘twist’. Read more

Nonlinear and Quantum properties of polaritons in photonic lattices

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. Read more

Defect engineering in silicon solar cells

Would you like to work in a world-class research team, in a well-equipped state-of-the-art research laboratory, and on one of the most important topics facing us in the 21st century? Come to join us at the Solar Photovoltaics (PV) Group at the Australian National University (ANU). Read more

Development of novel III-V semiconductors for optoelectronic devices

The project will be based on III-V semiconductors materials and devices. It will start with the basic understanding of material physics by familiarisation of ultra-high vacuum (UHV) growth technique and in-situ characterization and simulation of the electronic structure of the group III-Arsenide/Antimonide/Nitride). Read more

Lasers and Light Source guided Osteogenesis and Angiogenesis for Tissue Engineering

  Research Group: School of Chemical and Process Engineering
The project will investigate the growth of osteoblast and endothelial cells in in vitro model on a given bone scaffold and investigate the light-induced cell induction and conduction for osteogenesis and angiogenesis. Read more

Dynamics of Quantum Many-Body Systems

Applications are open for a PhD studentship in Theoretical Condensed Matter Physics to work on the “Dynamics of Quantum Many-Body Systems” in the group of Dr Joe Bhaseen at King’s College London. Read more

Caloric effects in magnetic Weyl semimetals

Topological materials, including the recently discovered Dirac and Weyl semimetals (WSM), lead to a paradigm shift in science due to their inter-twinned spin and charge properties, protected against backscattering. Read more

Modelling hydrogels and fractal materials

  Research Group: School of Computing
There is growing interest in the importance class of materials known as hydrogels, which are formed by the aggregation of small building blocks until they gel (or percolate) across the sample. Read more

PhD in Engineering Bio-inspired nanophotonic devices to control light emission on-a-chip

Natural systems offer a plethora of geometries and structures that have been optimised by billions of years of evolution. In particular, if we think of plants, flowers and insects, we can find examples of ingenious ways to create colours and to enhance the light-matter interaction, by reflecting and absorbing light.
