Conventional microelectronic components such as transistors and solid-state memories process and store information by the manipulation of electrical currents.
  Modelling the properties of electron and hole polarons in materials
  Research Group: Condensed Matter Physics
  Dr K McKenna
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The strong coupling between electrons and phonons in some materials leads to the formation of small polarons (quasiparticles comprised of a localised electron and an associated polarisation field).
  Phase engineering 2D materials for next-generation membrane technologies
  Research Group: Condensed Matter Physics
  Dr A Pratt
Application Deadline: 11 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

2D material membranes allow the investigation of processes vital to the existence of life and provide a platform for developing next-generation nanofiltration, purification, and healthcare technologies.
