Physics: EPSRC Funded PhD Studentship: Thin Film Optoelectronic Device Physics
Swansea University is a UK top 30 institution for research excellence (Research Excellence Framework 2014), and has been named Welsh University of the Year 2017 by The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide.
Start date: 1 January 2018
- Supervisor 1: Professor Paul Meredith
- Supervisor 2: Dr Ardalan Armin
Project description: This project will focus on developing new methods, models and insight into the transport and electro-optical physics of next generation thin film optoelectronic devices and related materials. The project will involve developing and implementing state-of-the-art electrical and photophysical spectroscopic methods and investigating in particular the links and interdependencies between charge generation and extraction in thin film light harvesting devices such as solar cells and photodiodes. The project is part of a new endeavour at Swansea University in Sustainable Advanced Materials working within a multi-disciplinary group of physicists, materials scientists, chemists and engineers.
