Condensed Matter Physics

EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Condensed Matter Physics (CDT-CMP)

Up to 12 fully-funded PhD places for a 4-year CDT PhD programme, starting September 2017.

The Universities of Bristol and Bath joint EPSRC-funded Centre for Doctoral Training in Condensed Matter Physics (CDT-CMP): The Centre aims to train students across a broad range of disciplines in the field of hard condensed matter physics, encompassing experiment, theory, fundamental physics and device applications.

Key elements of the PhD programme

  • Taught courses and hands-on training in experimental and theoretical techniques during year one. Example topics include: the physics of novel materials; Device fabrication and characterization; and Theoretical modelling and simulation.
  • Physics techniques modules (theory and experiment), short exploratory training projects and an extended research project in a choice of groups at Universities of Bristol or Bath.
  • Optional research placements with our industrial and large facility partners or at leading overseas Universities.
  • World-leading supervisors in Condensed Matter Physics.
  • Embedded skills training.
  • A research project based in our excellently equipped laboratories with a wide choice of exciting experimental and theoretical projects in fields including:
    • Superconductors
    • Magnetic materials
    • 2D materials; graphene and beyond
    • Semiconductors
    • Photonic and plasmonic materials
    • Condensed matter theory
    • Spintronics
