  Development of Superconducting Detectors and Filtering Structures for the Next Generation of Sub-mm Astronomical Instruments
  Research Group: Astronomy Instrumentation
  Dr S Doyle
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
The Cardiff Astronomy Instrumentation Group (AIG) is one of the world leaders in Kinetic Inductance Detector (KID) development. These superconducting detectors are the most promising technology for the next generation of millimeter – THz wave detectors.
  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.
  Interplay between thermal and magnetic (spin) currents: theory and experiments
  Dr K Morrison, Dr M Greenaway, Dr F Dejene
Application Deadline: 15 February 2019
An opportunity to work in a rapidly developing field of research, developing a diverse range of analytical and numerical skills. This project will be working alongside the EPSRC Fellowship - Reliable, Scalable and Affordable Thermoelectrics.
  Cooling mesoscopic electrons down to the quantum limit
  Dr J T Nicholls
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
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
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
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
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
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
Application Deadline: 30 January 2019
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
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
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.
  Power Converter for Superconducting Network - Exploring and design power converter operating at cryogenic temperature between 20K and 100K
  Dr X Pei
Application Deadline: 30 April 2019
High-temperature superconductor has great potential for widespread application in energy networks. Superconducting network is particular attractive for electric aircraft because superconductor material offers high current density, low loss, lightweight and small volume.
