  Theory for the Quantum Entangled states of cold atoms controlled with extreme light
  Dr A Demetriadou
Application Deadline: 15 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

When light illuminates a dielectric object, it is transmitted and reflected. By controlling the topology of such objects (for example their geometry and periodic arrangement), one can direct and concentrate light at extremely small and sub-wavelength volumes, tremendously increasing the light intensity at the same time.

Active matter is a class of materials in which the individual constituents continually consume energy to generate work or motion, maintaining the system in dynamic, self-organised, nonequilibrium states [1].
  Microbial Micro-Engineers
  Dr M Mazza
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Microorganisms occupy every crevice within global ecosystems and impact all aspects of life. However, too little is understood about their movement within physical crannies, and how they can restructure these microspaces for their own benefit.
