  Direct Electron Beam Writing of Nanostructures
  Prof R Winpenny, Prof S Yeates, Dr D Lewis, Dr S Lewis
Application Deadline: 27 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Electron beam lithography (EBL) is one method for producing structures at the nanometre scale for use in electronics and other advanced technologies.
  Formulation of Resist Materials with Dendrimers and Metal-Organic Precursors
  Prof R Winpenny, Prof S Yeates
Application Deadline: 27 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

More conventionally, EBL is used to write patterns into resist materials that are then developed and etched. Conventional resist materials are polymers such as PMMA, but recently we have developed metal-organic resists that show very exciting properties.
  Functionalised Metal-Organic Cages for Biomolecule Encapsulation
  Dr I Riddell, Dr L Natrajan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In contrast to the plethora of examples of metal-organic cages that encapsulate, stabilise and activate small molecules a limited number of cages capable of encapsulating biomolecules have been reported.
