  Optical Simultons in Atomic Vapours
  Dr R M Potvliege, Dr S A Wrathmall
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited by the Quantum, Light and Matter group of Durham University for a theoretical Ph.D. project on the formation and control of simultons in atomic media (two-colour solitonlike optical pulses, which can propagate with little attenuation over surprisingly long distances).
  Novel platforms for integrated quantum devices based on rare earth doped insulating materials
  Dr M Mazzera
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We offer a 3-year PhD position for a talented, proactive, and strongly motivated candidate who will contribute building a new setup with potential for ground breaking scientific research in the field of solid-state quantum memories for quantum communication applications.
  Quantum atomic gases and photons
  Prof J Ruostekoski
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

One of the success stories of quantum physics is how individual quantum particles have been controlled and manipulated for quite some time.
  EPSRC CDT in Nuclear Energy - GREEN (Growing skills for Reliable Economic Energy from Nuclear)

Funding Type

PhD Type

The GREEN CDT is a consortium of the five universities of Lancaster, Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester and Sheffield, which aims to train the next generation of expert nuclear scientists and engineers.
  Quantum Chemistry in Phase Space
  Dr M Everitt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We have recently shown how to construct phase space representations (Wigner functions) of heterogeneous quantum systems that leads to a new capability in the visualization of quantum states of atoms and molecules.
  PhD Vacancy - Mini-Fountain Cold Atom Clock: building a prototype of a small footprint cold-atom frequency standard
  Prof C Foot, Dr KS Szymaniec
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

EPSRC iCASE Oxford DPhil studentship in collaboration with the National Physical Laboratory, intended for EEA applicants. The digital infrastructure and economy we rely on as society requires wide access to reliable and accurate timing signals synchronized to robust and largely autonomous timescales.
  Non—invasive instrumentation development for particle accelerators on the basis of Cherenkov diffraction radiation
  Dr P Karataev
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cherenkov diffraction radiation appears when a charged particle moves in the vicinity of and parallel to a dielectric interface. The intensity is proportional to the length of the radiator.
  Atomic imaging for optimising van der Waals heterostructures
  Research Group: Nano and Functional Materials
  Dr S Haigh, Prof A Geim
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The possibility to create new ‘designer’ materials by stacking together atomically thin layers extracted from layered materials with different properties…
  Atomic imaging in liquids
  Research Group: Nano and Functional Materials
  Dr S Haigh, Dr RG Gorbachev
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) is one of the few techniques able to image the structure and chemistry of a wide range of materials at the atomic scale.
  Pioneering 3D Atomic Imaging for Clean Energy
  Research Group: Nano and Functional Materials
  Dr S Haigh, Prof C Hardacre
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nanoparticle catalysts are crucial for improving energy efficiency, reducing harmful emissions and the production of clean renewable energy via fuel cells.

  EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Delivering Quantum Technologies

Funding Type

PhD Type

4-year PhD programme in quantum technology and quantum systems engineering. • Quantum technologies involve control and manipulation of quantum states to achieve results not possible with classical matter, transforming measurement, communication and computation.
  A source of quantum light for atom magnetometry
  Dr V Boyer
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

When using classical light, optical measurements and light-based sensing methods are limited by the unavoidable quantum fluctuations in phase and amplitude, also known as shot noise.
  Quantum and nonlinear optics with cold atoms in a ring cavity
  Dr J Goldwin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In free space, the interaction between a single photon and an atom is typically very weak. By confining light and atoms in a high-quality optical resonator, the coupling strength can be increased until the probabilities for absorption and emission are on the order of unity.
