About This PhD Project

Project Description

Cosmic-ray muons are known to be useful in applications beyond particle astrophysics. They have helped to map structure of volcanoes and finding voids in various geological structures. Other possible applications include studies of geological repositories including monitoring carbon capture, tracing illicit nuclear materials etc. The PPPA group at the University of Sheffield, in collaboration with other institutions and industrial partners, pursues a wide programme related to these muon applications. This PhD project offers an opportunity for a student to apply the knowledge of particle/astroparticle physics and detector technology, in other areas which are linked to key problems of contemporary world: atmospheric pollution, climate change, nuclear security etc.
