PhD position summary/title: 3D printed reactors for online reaction monitoring

Online monitoring of chemical reactions is essential for understanding how reactions work, and for optimising them. The use of 3D printing allows much more freedom in how reactors are designed and used. It also provides a way to embed monitoring into the reactor itself. We have shown that 3D printing can produce standard parts that can be assembled into bespoke reactors; in addition we can use the design freedom of printed reactors to incorporate monitoring equipment such as thermocouples, IR, UV, NMR etc. This project will look at specific reactions, with a view to finding ways to optimise them via design of the reactor, online monitoring of the reaction, and feedback of these elements to produce an optimised reaction and reactor. The project will be of interest if you have skills in synthetic chemistry, but also a curiosity in reactor design, reaction monitoring and optimisation protocols.

PhD position summary/title: Application of laser patterning for functionalisation of vascular stents

Currently, the design and manufacturing of stents prioritise making them smaller and thinner to minimise disturbance to blood flow without compromising their mechanical performance under loading. This approach would facilitate stent deployment and reduce the occurrence of post-intervention complications.

Surface patterning and functionalisation of materials used in vascular stents have been investigated to improve their blood compatibility and promote the repair of the inner walls of blood vessels following intervention procedures. Modification of surface topography can be achieved at micrometre and/or nanometre scales using techniques, such as sandblasting and chemical etching. However, these conventional techniques lack precision control and require additional processing after production, leading to increased manufacturing costs and corresponding environmental consequences.

PhD position summary/title: Computational design of molecules with tuned optical absorption and emission properties

Molecules able to absorb and emit light play an important role in many modern technologies, such as light sources, displays, and sensors. A tremendous experimental effort is on its way in terms of synthesising and characterising new molecules for these tasks. This effort can be crucially supported by computation, not only by predicting the properties of individual molecules, but more importantly by developing general guiding principles for designing new molecules.

It is the goal of this project to study the interactions of molecules with light and, specifically, how we can tune band shapes and absorption / emission intensities. To do so, we will perform quantum chemistry computations to simulate spectra to high accuracy, supported by some pen-and-paper work aimed at improving our qualitative understanding. We will investigate which factors affect transition dipole moments and, therefore, the optical intensities. We will study how vibronic coupling affects band shapes and how to modulate this effectively.

PhD position summary/title: Creating hybrid nanodevices for fast and versatile light-controlled spintronic applications

Breakthroughs in information technology over the last 50 years have relied heavily on knowledge of electronic processes, utilisation of magnetic states (such as giant magnetoresistance read heads for magnetic hard drives) and usage of lasers (e.g., CDs and fibre optics). Nowadays, research efforts are increasingly aimed at reducing the power consumption of computation devices, e.g., by harnessing heat differentials to manipulate and move magnetic information. However, most current methods to create complex temperature distributions are either slow, prone to damage, or produce only small temperature differences only.

Within our project, you will combine concepts of the fields of magnetism and thermoplasmonics to produce novel and versatile functional metamaterials that allow for fast and optically reconfigurable remote control of devices for energy harvesting, the motion and control of magnetic bits, and unconventional magnetic computing.

PhD position summary/title: Eigenfunctions of the Laplacian on manifolds with boundary

One very useful way to measure concentration of eigenfunctions is via their L^p norms. However, for manifolds with boundary, optimal bounds are only known in the case where the boundary is strictly concave or when the dimension is two (in the general case). Moreover, there is a growing interest in estimates for many (orthonormal) functions as opposed to a single function. The questions and the techniques are motivated from mathematical physics and have applications to PDEs such as the Hartree equation. In these applications, it is crucial that the bound depends in an optimal way on the number of functions. The aim of the project is to investigate these types of problems. A starting point might be to study the example of the Dirichlet Laplacian on the unit disc.

PhD position summary/title: Representations of p-local finite groups

The theory of p-local finite groups is analogous to that of finite groups, and provides a unifying approach to classification problems in algebra and topology. One family of “atoms” of p-local symmetry – the p-local finite groups of Lie type – are a natural family of objects for which one can formulate and prove local-global conjectures generalising analogous statements in the modular representation theory of finite groups. This suggests a structured approach to these conjectures exists, but an incomplete understanding of the nature of a “representation” of a p-local finite group of Lie-type is currently holding back progress in the area.

Our project proposes vector bundles over these spaces as the correct alternatives to representations. As a useful test case, we will construct irreducible vector bundles for the smallest class of objects in this family – the Sullivan spheres – and show that their degrees match those predicted by the associated cyclotomic Hecke algebras, thus unifying apparently disparate objects in algebra and topology

PhD position summary/title: Smart Charging of Electric Vehicles

As battery electric vehicles are becoming more common, charging them poses both a risk and an opportunity for our electricity grid. The risk is that if many charge at the same time, this could significantly increase the peak load of our electricity grid. The opportunity is load shifting or demand side response: moving the charging to periods when the grid is less busy and excess electricity is available. This can enable the integration of further volatile renewable generation (solar, wind, tidal etc) into our grid without causing excessive wastage through overgeneration, contributing to our move towards net zero. It can also help by using local generation via a home microgrid.

PhD position summary/title: Surfaces for high pressure hydrogen injectors

Hydrogen as a replacement for fossil fuels is seen as a mainstay of UK and European decarbonisation planning.

It can be expected that on many industrial scales, domestic and off-road applications (above small passenger car size) will be dominated by hydrogen combustion (rather than fuel cells), which will emerge as the most appealing technological solution.

A key advantage of (lean) hydrogen combustion is the primary emissions are water vapour and a small amount of NOx. Compared to conventional fuels, hydrogen has a much lower ignition temperature and as result light-back, preignition and/or autoignition can be common problems for manifold induction and low-pressure ignition systems.
