Exploring the Underlying Physics of New Classes of Quantum Matter

Exploring the Underlying Physics of New Classes of Quantum Matter

Applications accepted all year round

Competition Funded PhD Project (Students Worldwide)

Project Description

The field of condensed matter physics has been rejuvenated over recent years with the discovery of new classes of materials with remarkable properties and great potential for application. This includes topological insulators, Weyl semi-metals, topological superconductors, atomically thin semiconductors and the ability to dynamically control their remarkable properties by applying external fields (e.g. laser pulses). There is much work still to be done to fully understand the physics of these material systems and the quantum mechanical interactions that drive the macroscopic properties.
In parallel, over the past decade the development of sophisticated ultrafast-laser based, multidimensional coherent spectroscopy techniques has enabled insight into a range of complex material systems. We have recently brought these approaches to the problem of high temperature superconductivity, revealing new insights and opening the door to many more experiments. This project seeks to continue and extend this work to understand the physics of the new classes of quantum materials described above.

Funding Notes

The available scholarships include tuition and a generous living allowance. Interested applicants should send a CV and academic transcript to A/Prof Jeff Davis ().
For more information about the group please check out our website (www.swin.edu.au/caous/UltrafastSpec.htm) and email Prof. Davis if you have any questions.

Computational projects to investigate novel magnetic phenomena in oxides

Computational projects to investigate novel magnetic phenomena in oxides

Applications accepted all year round

Self-Funded PhD Students Only

 Department of Physics and Astronomy, University of Sheffield

Project Description

A new research area is developing called Spintonics. This means that it is electronics in which both the charge and the spin of the mobile electrons play a role. There are good reasons why the situation that has existed in which the power of conventional electronics increases every year is going to end fairly soon. Spintronics is very likely to become the new vital technology in the future. Hence there is a large interest in this topic worldwide. The standard magnetic materials such as iron and cobalt are not always most suited for integrating with semiconducting devices and so there is an increasing interest in understanding oxide magnets. This has been the focus for an experimental programme in Sheffield for many years. Modern supercomputers have enabled increasingly sophisticated modelling of heterogeneous materials so that modelling of these materials becomes feasible. There are two effects that occur when nanoparticles are incorporated into oxide materials. One is that the magnetism is very strongly enhanced and the other is that the materials can exhibit two different resistance states where a low resistance state is initiated at high voltage but remains stable until a significant reverse voltage is applied. Thus there are two projects in this area both of which will use the same set of modelling codes, CASTEP, one is to investigate the magnetic properties and an oxide in contact with metallic cobalt nanoparticles and the other is to model current flow through an oxide-nanoparticle array. However electronic modelling only takes one so far and there is always a need to combine this with theoretical insights.

Mathematical Modelling and Analysis of Thin-Film Flows

Mathematical Modelling and Analysis of Thin-Film Flows

Applications accepted all year roun

Self-Funded PhD Students Only

Department of Mathematics & Statistics, University of Strathclyde

Project Description

Not only are thin-film flows ubiquitous in nature, industry and biology (where they appear as, for example, lava and mud flows, coating flows, microfluidics, and biofilms and other mucus linings within the human body, respectively), but they also provide an endlessly fascinating «playground» in which to investigate a wide range of nonlinear and dynamical phenomena. In particular, the flow of rivulets and droplets and the interaction between thin films of fluid and the external environment (such as, for example, the airflow over a car windscreen on a rainy day or the evaporation of a fluid droplet) display complex and unexpected phenomena who understanding often necessitates an insightful combination of asymptotic and numerical methods. The proposed project will use a variety of analytical and numerical methods to bring new understanding into a range of real-world problems involving thin films of both simple and complex fluids. In particular, while the details are open to discussion with the student, we plan to build on the supervisor’s previous work in rivulet flow [see, for example, Al Mukahal et al. Proc. Roy. Soc. A 473 (2207) 20170524 (2017)] and droplet evaporation [see, for example, Stauber et al. Phys. Fluids 27 122101 (2015)] and will hopefully involve collaboration with experimentalists.

Prerequisites

You should have (or expect to have) a UK Honours Degree (or equivalent) at 2.1 or above in Mathematics, Mathematics and Physics, Physics or a closely related discipline with a high mathematical content. Knowledge of Continuum Mechanics and mathematical methods (such as asymptotic methods) for the solution of partial differential equations is desirable (but not essential, particularly for overseas applicants).

Application Procedure

Informal enquiries can be made to the supervisor, Professor Stephen K. Wilson, Department of Mathematics and Statistics, University of Strathclyde, Glasgow at and/or +44(0)141 548 3820. However, formal applications must be made via the online application procedure which can be found at

https://www.strath.ac.uk/courses/research/mathematicsstatistics/

remembering to list the title of the project as “Mathematical Modelling and Analysis of Thin-Film Flows” and Professor Stephen K. Wilson as the first supervisor. There is no need to include a detailed research plan, but a brief outline of your relevant experience (if any) and your motivation for choosing this project would assist with the selection procedure.

Funding Notes

There is currently no founding allocated to this project but there are various funding schemes (both internal and external to the University) to which we can apply for support for the right candidate. The project is, of course, also available to self-funded students who already have their own source of funding.

3D Printed Chemical Reactors with embedded functionality

3D Printed Chemical Reactors with embedded functionality

Competition Funded PhD Project (Students Worldwide)

Project Description

Loughborough is a world leader in the preparation and use of 3D printed chemical reactors, particularly with embedded analytical functionality. We are one of a few groups to design and prepare 3D printed reactors using a variety of different techniques. By embedding sensors into the reactors, we can accurately monitor reactions as they progress. This allows the optimisation of reactions in real time through a Design of Experiments, or an automation approach. This project will look at further integration of these diverse techniques to produce highly optimised reactors for the production of hard to access products, and utilising novel chemistry. The successful applicant will be well-trained in computer aided design, 3D printing, online analysis, reaction optimisation and automation, as well as advanced organic synthesis.

Loughborough University is a top-ten rated university in England for research intensity (REF2014). In choosing Loughborough for your research, you’ll work alongside academics who are leaders in their field. You will benefit from comprehensive support and guidance from our Doctoral College, including tailored careers advice, to help you succeed in your research and future career.

Find out more: http://www.lboro.ac.uk/study/postgraduate/supporting-you/research/

Full Project Detail:

The use of 3D printing for chemistry applications has grown in the last few years. Loughborough has been in the field since the beginning and has access to a range of 3D printing techniques. We utilise these reactors to enable chemistry in new and interesting ways. Of particular interest is the embedding of analytical sensors: thermocouples, fibre optics for spectroscopy etc. This allows us to monitor reactions in real time, and by different techniques. Using this information, we can then optimise the chemical process under study in a much more detailed manner. We can go further and analyse reactions over a wider reaction space, and potentially look at automating the optimisation protocols. The project will involve several complementary and interdisciplinary areas: computer aided design; 3D printing; synthetic chemistry; analytical techniques; reaction monitoring; automation techniques. The successful project will see a student well trained in these emerging areas, which are sought after in industry.

Deposition and properties of thin films of high-entropy alloys

Deposition and properties of thin films of high-entropy alloys

Friday, February 16, 2018
  • Competition Funded PhD Project (Students Worldwide)

Project Description

A project is available to investigate the properties of thin films of high-entropy alloys, developing skills is thin films deposition, high-vacuum and thin films analysis techniques.

Loughborough University is a top-ten rated university in England for research intensity (REF2014). In choosing Loughborough for your research, you’ll work alongside academics who are leaders in their field. You will benefit from comprehensive support and guidance from our Doctoral College, including tailored careers advice, to help you succeed in your research and future career.

Find out more: http://www.lboro.ac.uk/study/postgraduate/supporting-you/research/

Full Project Detail:

Alloys made from five or more metallic elements in roughly equal proportions are frequently described as high-entropy alloys. Bulk high-entropy alloys have been widely studied and the materials have been shown to have promising mechanical properties including. A typical example of a high-entropy alloy is CoCrCuFeNi. These alloys are stabilised by the entropy of mixing and tend to form solid solutions. Although there have been many studies of bulk materials, there are fewer reports on thin films.

We intend to study the deposition and properties of thin films of some example high-entropy alloys. The deposition techniques at our disposal are pulsed laser deposition and magnetron sputtering, the latter principally for non-magnetic alloys. The aim is to deposit thin films under differing conditions and potentially with varying compositions, and to appraise them using analytical techniques including x-ray diffraction and electron spectroscopy. The analysis will address issues such as structure, composition and any incidence of surface segregation that may affect surface properties. Where appropriate the analysis may be extended to magnetic properties.
