1. PhD position luminescent concentrators
Seeking a science graduate ideally with some hands-on experience in the solar energy or photovoltaic fields to work on a project involving the design, fabrication and testing of novel luminescent solar concentrators for efficient and cheap conversion of sunlight into electrical energy.
2. PhD position upconvertor spectroscopy
We are looking for a suitably qualified graduate student to work on an ARC Centre of Excellence in Exciton Science funded project on upconversion materials. The goal is to generate new materials, which can harness NIR light and emit in the visible with high quantum yield.
3. PhD position atomic force microscopy.
We are looking for a suitably qualified graduate student to work on an ARC Centre of Excellence in Exciton Science funded project on nanomechanical sensing. The goal is to use atomic force microscope (AFM) microcantilevers as resonators to detect adsorbed mass, electronic charge or magnetic spins.
