  Quantum dynamics of frustrated spin systems
  Research Group: Condensed Matter and Photonics
  Dr S Giblin
Applications accepted all year round
We investigate the magnetic spin dynamics of bulk systems as quantum effects start to become relevant at low temperature. We do this by looking at spin relaxation using a variety of experimental probes.
  Superconducting diamond as a bridge to the quantum mechanical world
  Research Group: Condensed Matter and Photonics
  Prof O Williams, Dr S Giblin
Applications accepted all year round
We investigate the quantum properties of devices made from superconducting diamond. Diamond has obvious industrial uses because of its inherent hardness, but we are interested in exploiting its properties when it is doped with Boron.
  Noise Thermometry with a focus on SQUIDS and nanodevices operating at millikelvin temperatures
  Dr V Tsepelin, Dr J Prance
Applications accepted all year round
Lancaster University is offering a fully funded PhD project to study noise thermometry, with a focus on SQUIDS and nanodevices operating at millikelvin temperatures.
  Quantum nanomechanics with vibrating carbon nanotubes
  Dr E Laird
Applications accepted all year round
We are seeking two talented and highly motivated PhD candidates for a new experimental project in quantum electronics and nanomechanics.
  Magnetic Thin Films for Energy Harvesting
  Dr K Morrison
Applications accepted all year round
The spin Seebeck effect is a newly discovered phenomenon that manifests as the generation of a spin current when a magnetic material is subjected to a temperature gradient.
  Cooling mesoscopic electrons down to the quantum limit
  Dr J T Nicholls
Applications accepted all year round
The study of mesoscopic semiconductor devices, where electrons are confined into submicron-sized dots and wires, has been extremely fruitful over the past 25 years.
  Probing Quantum States with Nano-Electro-Mechanical Systems (NEMS)
  Dr A Casey
Applications accepted all year round
Nano-Electro-Mechanical Systems (NEMS) represent a new key disruptive technology providing potential solutions for research and industry across a wide range of sectors, from Quantum Information processing through physical sensors to biological sensor applications.
  Realizing quantum materials with atomically layered helium films
  Prof J Saunders
Applications accepted all year round
Historically the study of helium has played a central role in condensed matter physics.
  Superconductivity of YbRh2Si2, a candidate topological superconductor
  Prof J Saunders, Dr L Levitin
Applications accepted all year round
YbRh2Si2 is a canonical heavy fermion metal with a field tuned quantum critical point. In recent work we have developed transport measurements on high quality single crystal samples which show it to be a superconductor below 10 mK.
  Topological mesoscopic superfluidity of 3He
  Prof J Saunders
Applications accepted all year round
Superfluid 3He is one of the most exciting and rich condensed matter systems we know. Over the past thirty years its intellectual impact has been felt in areas as diverse as unconventional superconductivity, cosmology and turbulence.
