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

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

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

Development and implementation of a mesoscopic modelling tool for Liquid Crystal Elastomers

Conventional elastomeric materials (rubbers) have poor shock-absorbing (dissipative) capabilities. In contrast, a sub-class of rubbers called liquid crystal elastomers (LCEs) show exceptional dissipative capabilities. 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

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

Precision Collider Phenomenology

Projects are available in the following areas. ·        Computations and simulations for high-energy scattering processes. ·        Large Hadron Collider Phenomenology. Read more

Understanding and optimising laser-driven ion acceleration

A studentship is available from October 2022 on numerical modelling of laser-driven ion acceleration. Ultra-intense laser pulses can rapidly ionise matter and excite accelerating fields that are orders of magnitude higher than those characterising conventional accelerators. Read more

Cellular logistics: Biological physics of selective protein and gene transport across the nuclear envelope

  Research Group: School of Physics and Astronomy
The coordinated transport of proteins and nucleic acids between the nucleus and the cytosol is vital for proper gene expression and cell function, and hijacked by viruses to propagate. Read more

Simulating black holes and quantum gravity with optical lattices

  Research Group: School of Physics and Astronomy
Unlike the fundamental forces of the Standard Model, such as electromagnetic, weak and strong forces, the quantum effects of gravity are still experimentally inaccessible. Read more
