Diode-pumped frequency combs for classical and quantum applications

The Ultrafast Optics Group at Heriot-Watt University has available a fully-funded PhD position in the development of novel diode-pumped infrared laser sources, ideal platforms for free-space telecommunications and vibrational spectroscopy. Read more

Visualising Molecular Doping in Conjugated Polymers

Visualising Molecular Doping in Conjugated Polymers. A fully funded 3.5 years PhD position in the field of experimental nanoscience at surfaces and molecular imaging of conjugated polymers is available in the group of Prof. Read more

Neuromorphic devices based on oxidation-conversion of van-der-Waals semiconductors

Why this research is important. Taking inspiration from the human brain, neuromorphic systems uses physics of materials and devices to process unstructured and noisy analogue data, leading to a fundamentally new approach to computing. Read more

The Spin Deep Within: Physics of Ferropericlase in the Earth’s Lower Mantle

1. Introduction. Even though we live on the surface of the Earth, its mantle in many ways remains a mystery. In particular, there are some fundamental properties of the rocks that comprise the mantle, thousands of kilometers beneath our feet, which remain poorly understood. Read more

Nanoscale ferroelectricity in epitaxial oxide heterostructures

Ferroelectrics have a multitude of applications that range from medical ultrasound transducers to non-volatile random access memories and exploit their superior dielectric, piezoelectric, pyroelectric and optical properties, as well as the defining characteristic of ferroelectrics—their spontaneous electrical polarization that can be switched by an electric field. Read more

New technologies for electronics fabrication in a time of unprecedented demand

The demand for electronics is unprecedented, with processors needed for consumer devices and cloud computing. Manufacturing electronics requires technologies for the removal, or etching, of materials. Read more

Emergent helical dipole textures in quadruple perovskites

Ordering of magnetic dipoles in materials gives rise to many kinds of magnetic structures, from simple ferromagnetism to complex helices, that have found important applications with profound impacts in society. Read more

Plasmonic Enhancement of Hydrogen from Water Splitting

The surface plasmon resonance of nanostructures enhances solar light harvesting using semiconducting substrates either by photo-induced charge transfer or near-field enhancement. Read more

Polaritonic enhancement of metal halide perovskite photovoltaic performance

Clean, renewable solar energy is currently most widely harnessed by silicon solar cells. Competition has emerged over the last decade in the form of metal halide perovskites (MHPs), semiconductors whose excellent physical properties allow for highly efficient, easily fabricated solar cells. Read more

Drive and material imperfections impacting inertial fusion

Fusion is the process which occurs at the centre of the Sun and is the source of energy that heats and lights the Earth. Our aim is to produce heat and electricity from fusion of deuterium and tritium, isotopes of hydrogen, to form helium and a neutron. Read more

Designing two-dimensional materials based membrnaes for sustainable separation technologies

National Graphene Institute (NGI) and Department of Chemical Engineering at the University of Manchester, invites applications for two fully funded PhD studentship (Uk and Overseas) in the area of 2D materials based membranes. Read more

Exploring low-dimensional quantum magnetism in exotic new 2D materials

Experimental low-temperature physics focussed on lab-based crystal synthesis & characterisation and neutron scattering experiments at international facilities to study the details of magnetic structures. Read more
