We have 31 Physics PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships in York

Discovery of new sustainable permanent magnets for electric motors and generators

  Research Group: Condensed matter and materials physics
High-performance permanent magnets are needed for electric motors and generators which are essential for the decarbonisation of transport (land, sea and air) and energy generation (>25% of UK electricity comes from wind-turbines). Read more

Leveraging Statistical and Machine Learning Approaches for Engineering Design under Uncertainties

  Research Group: Intelligent Systems and Robotics
Are you passionate about pushing the boundaries of engineering design and addressing real-world challenges? Embark on this exciting journey to develop novel statistical and machine learning methods to enhance engineering design in the presence of uncertainties, and contribute to shaping the future of computational engineering design. Read more

Photonics for Net Zero Enabled by Patternable Boron-Phosphide Polymers

The manipulation of light in optoelectronic devices is a cornerstone for the delivery of Net Zero, for example in low-energy optical computing (silicon-photonics) and green hydrogen generation from water (photocatalysis). Read more

Hybrid Technologies for Battery Thermal Management Using Smart Materials

  Research Group: Intelligent Systems and Robotics
Electric vehicles (EVs) are powered by lithium-ion batteries (LIBs) with many advantages such as high specific energy, long cycle life, wide range of operating temperature, and low self-discharge rates. Read more

DNA-bending Proteins for Nanotech

  Research Group: Physics of Life
DNA is the molecule that nature uses as genetic material and it rarely exists in a relaxed state inside cells. Read more

Plasma-based gas conversion into value-added chemicals

  Research Group: Plasma and fusion science and technologies
Plasmas are promising technology for the conversion of gases such as CO2, CH4 or N2 into more valuable ones, e.g. CO (starting material for alcohols and hydrocarbons), H2 (clean fuel applications) and NH3 (fertilisers). Read more

Sonars for precise underwater autonomous vehicle (AUV) navigation.

  Research Group: Communication Technologies
There is a great interest in underwater autonomous vehicles (AUVs) and currently many companies develop AUVs for multiple applications. Read more

Machine learning in underwater acoustic communication modems

  Research Group: Communication Technologies
Machine learning is an approach that is useful when a practical optimisation problem is difficult to describe precisely. This approach has found multiple applications. Read more

High-frequency underwater acoustic communication for image transmission.

  Research Group: Communication Technologies
Communication using acoustic waves is the main underwater communication technology, since electro-magnetic waves quickly attenuate underwater. Read more

Full-duplex underwater acoustic systems

  Research Group: Communication Technologies
Acoustic signal transmission is the only feasible technology for long-range (>10-100m) underwater communication, navigation and sonar systems. Read more

Controlling plasma chemistry of cold atmospheric-pressure air plasmas

  Research Group: Plasma and fusion science and technologies
Plasma technologies already form a key part of many of today’s multi-billion pound industries such as the nanoscale fabrication of microprocessors, production of solar cells and the deposition of advanced functional coatings. Read more

Deconstructing biofilms

  Research Group: Physics of Life
Colonies of bacteria form biofilms to protect themselves from outside threats, like antibiotics, by making an extracellular matrix. Read more
