Classical simulations of quantum systems

Applications are invited for our EPSRC funded Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP) PhD studentships that will support six (6) research projects starting 1 October 2022. Read more

Direct Dark Matter searches with LZ detector

The Lux-Zeplin (LZ) experiment is searching for mysterious Dark Matter particles using a Time Projection Chamber (TPC) containing 7 tonnes of liquefied xenon as a target material. Read more

New Optics Beyond Hertzian Waves: Anapoles and Flying Donuts

The Project. This project will advance optics and electromagnetism in the first radically new direction to emerge since Hertz, Marconi, Popov and Tesla originally developed technology for generating, detecting, and communicating with transverse electromagnetic waves. Read more

AI: from high energy physics to medical applications

Artificial intelligence techniques are more and more used in many fields. The Liverpool team working on the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) has been involved for many years in the development and performance evaluation of neural networks applied to high energy physics data analysis.

Reconstruction of Transverse Beam Distribution using Machine Learning

The beam transverse distribution in CERN's high-radiation environment is measured by imaging the light generated by the particle beam hitting a scintillating screen, using cameras produced in-house based on radiation hard tubes. Read more

Dynamics of Quantum Many-Body Systems

Applications are open for a PhD studentship in Theoretical Condensed Matter Physics to work on the “Dynamics of Quantum Many-Body Systems” in the group of Dr Joe Bhaseen at King’s College London. Read more

Investigating Noise in Ageing Cellular Power Stations

PhD Project. Imperial College Mathematics. Student Background. Theoretical Physics, Mathematics/Statistics, Electrical Engineering (Biological knowledge not required) or Quantitative Biology with an interest in experiment. Read more

EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Quantum Engineering

Through world-leading academic research, as well as partnering with some of industry's most important players, the Quantum Engineering CDT in Bristol has led the world in developing an environment that delivers an unparalleled training and development experience. Read more

Magnetic skyrmions in chiral multilayers

  Research Group: School of Physics and Astronomy
In this project we will study magnetic skyrmions, nanoscale swirls of spins that possess a special topology. They appear in properly designed magnetic multilayers at room temperature and are candidates for next-generation data storage technology. Read more

Topological solitons in anisotropic superconductors

  Research Group: School of Mathematics
Superconductors subjected to a magnetic field can host topological solitons called "vortices", spatially localized tubes of magnetic flux and energy that cannot dissipate for topological reasons. Read more
