Supervisor. Dr. Jonathan Gratus (Lancaster University) and Dr. Hywel Owen (Manchester University). A studentship is available from Oct 2019 on the development of the theory, computer coding and testing of an exciting new idea for improving the numerical simulation of charged particles.
The project is in the field of plasma physics, focusing on the analysis and modelling of plasma turbulence at kinetic scales. As a strongly nonlinear phenomenon, turbulence is responsible for the coupling of scales in a system.
This project will be part of the Doctoral Training Centre on Plasma interactions with Liquids. The Buckley group has embarked on a programme of research directed at carbon dioxide utilisation (CDU) and has reported initial efforts in the area.
Electron beam technology is a unique technology that enables joining dissimilar and otherwise hard to weld metals with very precise and clean welds while minimizing the heating of the material outside the working area.
