  Developing light-driven molecular switches for use on solid substrates
  Dr R J Maurer, Dr D Duncan
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Designing purpose built molecular devices is one of the ultimate goals of nanotechnology, potentially permitting mechanical control at the sub-nanometer scale.
  An ultrafast shakedown of defects in diamond using intense infrared pulses
  Dr J Lloyd-Hughes, Prof M E Newton, Dr V Stavros
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Atomic-scale defects contained within crystals of diamond provide fascinating opportunities for fundamental and applied physics, including emerging use in quantum technologies and magnetometry.
  Selective epitaxial growth of Silicon Carbide thin film materials
  Dr M Myronov
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project is an exciting opportunity to be involved in innovative and pioneering research on selective epitaxial growth of silicon carbide (SiC) semiconductor material.
  Modelling the extraordinary strength of superalloys
  Dr P Brommer
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The extraordinary strength of superalloys (used e.g. in aeroplane engines) is caused by nanoscale precipitates formed in an ageing process.
  Quantum control of a spin in a levitated nanodiamond
  Dr G Morley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Single nitrogen-vacancy (NV-) centres in diamond have isolated electronic and nuclear spins which can store quantum information at room temperature for over one second.
  Band structure measurements in van der Waals heterostructures
  Dr N Wilson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Angle resolved photoemission spectroscopy (ARPES) beautifully reveals the momentum-resolved electronic structure at the surface of crystalline solids.
  2D Material Heterostructures and novel Twistronic Devices
  Dr N D M Hine
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Combining high performance and ultra-low power usage is the ultimate goal of materials technology for information processing. This research has led to whole new paradigms including “spintronics” and “valleytronics”.
  Modelling the compositional variation of the properties of magnetic refrigeration materials
  Prof J Staunton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Refrigeration using magnetic materials has emerged as a promising new, energy efficient and environmentally friendly solid state cooling technology.
  Nanoscale material discovery for thermoelectric energy harvesting and cooling
  Dr H Sadeghi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to exploit electronic and vibrational properties of nanoscale materials that are 1000 times smaller than diameter of a human hair to discover new materials for energy harvesting and cooling in consumer electronics such as mobile phones and laptops.
  Rational Design of Stable Electrocatalysts on Corrosion Free Carbon Supports: Improving Fuel Cell Performance
  Prof J Macpherson, Prof M E Newton, Dr C Dancer
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Two of the main global challenges that humanity faces, climate change and the depletion of traditional fossil fuel energy resources, are intrinsically connected.
  The Structure of Metal-Organic Interfaces
  Prof D P Woodruff, Dr G COSTANTINI
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Metal/organic interfaces (MOIs) play a crucial role in a range of practical applications. They strongly influence the performance of organic electronic devices (OEDs), but they also play an important role in a range of corrosion inhibitors and in the biocompatibility of medical implants.
  Three-Dimensional Active Liquid Crystals: Defects and Topology
  Dr GP Alexander
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Active matter is a class of materials in which the individual constituents continually consume energy to generate work or motion, maintaining the system in dynamic, self-organised, nonequilibrium states [1].
  X-ray studies of dynamic fluctuations in Nano-scaled artificial Spin-Ices
  Dr T PA Hase
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Geometric frustration, in which pair-wise interactions are incompatible with the underlying lattice can be found in many fields. Exploring the effect in bulk crystals is limited by the inability to modify the interactions in a systematic manner.
  Understanding quantum materials using high magnetic fields and applied pressure
  Dr P Goddard
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many of today’s most interesting, innovative and potentially useful materials display states of matter that seem to be explicable only by applying quantum mechanical models that are on the edge of our current understanding.
