Dark Matter Search with ADMX and the Quantum Sensors for the Hidden Sector Collaboration.

  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
This Ph.D. project involves searches for hidden sector dark matter, including QCD axions and axion like particles (ALPs). Our group at Sheffield leads the 'Quantum Sensors for the Hidden Sector' collaboration, and collaborates with the Axion Dark Matter Experiment (ADMX) collaboration in the USA. Read more

Cellular logistics: Biological physics of selective protein and gene transport across the nuclear envelope

  Research Group: School of Physics and Astronomy
The coordinated transport of proteins and nucleic acids between the nucleus and the cytosol is vital for proper gene expression and cell function, and hijacked by viruses to propagate. Read more

Local relativistic quantisation for novel photonic devices

  Research Group: School of Physics and Astronomy
The aim of this project is to model novel photonic devices with local light-matter interactions in close collaboration with experimentalists. Read more

Magnetic skyrmions in chiral multilayers

  Research Group: School of Physics and Astronomy
In this project we will study magnetic skyrmions, nanoscale swirls of spins that possess a special topology. They appear in properly designed magnetic multilayers at room temperature and are candidates for next-generation data storage technology. Read more

Simulating black holes and quantum gravity with optical lattices

  Research Group: School of Physics and Astronomy
Unlike the fundamental forces of the Standard Model, such as electromagnetic, weak and strong forces, the quantum effects of gravity are still experimentally inaccessible. Read more

Chiral Gravitons in Topological Quantum Matter: From Solid-State Materials to Quantum Computers

  Research Group: School of Physics and Astronomy
A major open problem in modern physics is the table-top generation and detection of emergent particles analogous to gravitons. the elusive mediators of gravitational force in a quantum theory of gravity. Read more

Tracking landslides and earthwork failures using electrical geophysics

Slope instability is responsible for considerable social and economic harm. In the UK, impacts are principally economic, through damage and disruption to critical infrastructure (e.g. Read more

Domain wall network model for theory of plastic deformations in van der Waals crystals

This project aims to develop mathematical models describing plasticity of two-dimensional materials. crystals where the intra-layer covalent bonding of atoms coexists with weak van der Waals (vdW) coupling between the layers. Read more
