We have 33 Physics PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships in York

Audio for Virtual and Augmented Reality

  Research Group: Communication Technologies
Recent developments in low cost VR displays have led to a resurgence of research into binaural 3-D audio. Whilst a good 3-D audio experience can be given using the state of the art technologies, there are still many problems to be solved. Read more

Real-time Networked based Musical Interaction in virtual immersive environments

  Research Group: Communication Technologies
There is a high demand for making and consuming live music over networked based systems. Virtual recording studios, performance venues and rehearsal spaces are within our technological grasp, bridging gaming technologies, low latency networking and immersive audio strategies. Read more

Studying strong interaction with polarised probes

  Research Group: Nuclear Physics
The focus of this project is to exploit the world’s leading electromagnetic (EM) beam facility (MAMI) to elucidate the fundamental nature of hadrons, nuclei and nuclear matter. Read more

Influence of listener movement on tonality and spatial quality in adaptive immersive surround sound systems

  Research Group: Communication Technologies
Whilst there is a significant body of work that focuses on the spatial quality and tonality of immersive surround sound systems for a sweet spot position, these qualities under a dynamic listening scenario (i.e. Read more

Improvements in headphone based 3-D audio using adaptive binaural signal processing and robust head-tracking

  Research Group: Communication Technologies
Design of immersive binaural surround systems requires an understanding of the perceptual cues for sound source localisation. Any source at a given angle of incidence to the head will create subtle time and level difference cues at the ears and is subject to spectral shaping due to the pinnae. Read more

PEM Electrolyser for Green Hydrogen Production

  Research Group: Intelligent Systems and Robotics
About the Project. Producing green hydrogen using water electrolysis is an important step towards achieving net-zero emissions by 2050. Read more

Bioelectronics for bioelectricity: developing a platform to interrogate the role of bioelectricity in biological phenomena, including cancer

  Research Group: Healthcare Engineering
Cells are electric! Bioelectricity within living organisms plays a role in multiple biological behaviours, from the electrophysiology of our nerves and muscles, to wound healing, organ development, and pathologies such as cancer. Read more

High data rate adaptive underwater acoustic networks

  Research Group: Communication Technologies
The ocean plays a key role in supporting all living organisms on our planet, yet the vast majority of the ocean remains unmapped and unobserved. Read more

Exploring medical isotopes production with the photon beams

  Research Group: Healthcare Engineering
There is a growing demand for radioactive isotopes to be employed both in treatment and diagnostics. Suitable isotopes need to be producable in sufficiently large quantities and at affordable price. Read more

Bio-inspired Systems, Neuromorphic Hardware, Unconventional Computing

  Research Group: Intelligent Systems and Robotics
Applicants are invited in one, or a combination of, the following areas. Bio-inspired Systems. Wonders in Nature, including our own brains, have fascinated scientists and en- gineers for decades if not centuries. Read more

Autonomous Reconfiguration, Deployment, and Management of Self-Aware Modular Space Robots

  Research Group: Intelligent Systems and Robotics
Modular and dynamically reconfigurable space hardware systems are a high priority for research and development as they can significantly decrease development costs, facilitate multiple payloads, and enable indefinite lifetime extension for space missions. Read more

Altermagnetism. A new phase for Spin

  Research Group: Condensed matter and materials physics
Recently, there have been observations in which phenomena typical of ferromagnets are accompanied by order that would normally be associated with antiferromagnets. Read more

Multi-Fidelity Modelling of Rechargeable Battery Degradation

  Research Group: Intelligent Systems and Robotics
Rechargeable batteries play a key role in electric vehicles and transition to net zero. One of the current challenges in batteries is degradation, which causes capacity retention and resistance increase as the battery cycles. Read more
