About This PhD Project

Project Description

The CVD Research group has an established reputation as a leading research group in innovative coating technologies. The project, within this group, will involve the deposition of biocidal thin films via atmospheric pressure flame assisted chemical vapour deposition (FACVD). The deposited films, including Cu and SiO2, all have strongly directed application within the health industry. The aim will be to produce highly biocidal, robust films suitable for long term use. Analysis will be available from a wide range of thin film analysis techniques for morphological (TEM, SEM, AFM, XRD), optical spectroscopies and chemical composition (XPS, GDOES). The study will involve systematically modifying deposition parameters and CVD coating technology to assess trends in film properties and optimum behaviour.

Eligibility

Candidates should have a first or upper second class honours degree in an area relevant to the subject. Candidates should have an interest in thin films deposition and materials characterisation. In all cases a Master’s degree or equivalent qualification or other evidence of research skills and experience is preferred but not essential.

Funding

Application where funding can be secured from other sources will be accepted at any time. For further information visit: http://www.salford.ac.uk/study/postgraduate/fees-and-funding/research-degree-fees-and-funding
