Physics of Materials
We have a long history of internationally recognised research in the study and development of new materials. This programme allows students to learn from expert researchers in the physics of materials in the friendly and vibrant research atmosphere provided by the international team of scientists at the Department of Physics and involves a substantial research project. This programme contains a combination of supervised research work, development of research skills and taught material. The programme involves a set of taught modules and an experimental or theoretical research projects. The theme of project will be dedicated to one of the topical areas in physics of materials including graphene based materials, thin film materials, shape memory compounds or nanomaterials as well as to experimental study of the mechanical properties of composite and plastic materials.
Normally upper 2nd Class Honours degree or equivalent in science or engineering, or appropriate professional experience; applicants with a good lower 2nd Class Honours degree are also considered.
Core modules: condensed matter physics; statistical and low temperature physics; surfaces, thin films and high vacuum; superconductivity and nanoscience; mathematical methods for interdisciplinary science; research methods in physics; research project.
Examinations, written reports and oral examinations as appropriate.
