  Iron Oxidation at the atomic scale: an In-situ environmental TEM/STEM study
  Research Group: Condensed Matter Physics
  Dr L Lari, Dr V Lazarov
Application Deadline: 1 October 2019
Fe and Fe-oxide (FeOx) based nanoparticles (NPs) have shown promising applications in physical and medical sciences. These include magnetic storage devices, catalysis, contrast enhancement in magnetic resonance imaging and magnetic hyperthermia.
  EBIC environmental STEM microscopy for energy materials and gas sensors
  Research Group: Condensed Matter Physics
  Dr L Lari, Dr V Lazarov
Application Deadline: 1 September 2019
Electron Beam induced current (EBIC) is an electron probe technique widely used in the semiconductor industry for the analysis of p-n junctions, minority carrier distributions, and material defects.
  Toward next generation of solar cells: the correlation between efficiency and interface atomic structures in perovskite solar cells
  Research Group: Condensed Matter Physics
  Dr V Lazarov, Dr L Lari
Application Deadline: 1 September 2019
Perovskite solar cells (PSCs) have the potential to revolutionise the field of solar cells. Their efficiency in the last decades has increased by an order of magnitude, which is unprecedented in this field.
  First principles modelling of defects in solar absorber materials
  Research Group: Condensed Matter Physics
  Dr K McKenna
Application Deadline: 1 September 2019
A number of materials are emerging as promising candidates to replace silicon in the next generation of solar cells. They offer the prospect of high efficiency, low cost and flexibility allowing for their incorporation into building materials for example.
  Modelling the properties of electron and hole polarons in materials
  Research Group: Condensed Matter Physics
  Dr K McKenna
Application Deadline: 1 September 2019
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).
  Theory-led optimisation of materials for tunnelling magnetoresistive devices
  Research Group: Condensed Matter Physics
  Dr K McKenna
Application Deadline: 1 September 2019
Tunnelling magnetoresistive devices find applications as a magnetic sensors in hard disk read heads and in emerging non-volatile magnetic random access memory (MRAM) technologies.
  Topological insulator based thermoelectrics
  Research Group: Condensed Matter Physics
  Dr V Lazarov, Dr D Kepaptsoglou
Applications accepted all year round
Scope and novelty Thermoelectric (TE) devices convert heat into electricity and represent an important route for green technologies.
  Nanophononic metamaterials: engineering phonons to convert between heat and electricity
  Research Group: Condensed Matter Physics
  Dr P Hasnip
Application Deadline: 1 September 2019
Thermoelectrics are materials which convert temperature gradients into electricity, or vice versa. These materials can harvest waste heat from industrial processes, turning it into electricity, or use current to provide efficient cooling.
  Light emitting two-dimensional materials for silicon emitters
  Research Group: Condensed Matter Physics
  Dr Y Wang, Prof T Krauss
Application Deadline: 1 September 2019
Silicon photonics has been widely recognized as the potential technology to achieve broadband, high-density, high-speed data interconnections for next generation computing.
  Towards measuring the magnetic field of single atoms: EMCD in electron microscope
  Research Group: Condensed Matter Physics
  Dr V Lazarov, Dr D Kepaptsoglou
Applications accepted all year round
The desire for investigation tools with the ability of detecting very localized magnetic properties down to atomic scale is driven by the need of drive of developing ultrafast, low power and non-volatile data and logic devices.
