Tuning the properties and production of structurally novel inorganic nanoparticles

Publication date:

Tuning the properties and production of structurally novel inorganic nanoparticles

DTA funding for a three year PhD project, starting this September, is available for a talented student (expected to obtain a first in either chemistry or physics). The DTA student’s principle supervisors will be Drs. S.M. Woodley (SMW) and M.A. Zwijnenburg (MAZ), both of whom are based within UCL Chemistry, and together have over a hundred research papers (work based on both development and application of theory in computational chemistry and physics of materials). Although this is a computational project, it is part of a new collaboration with Prof. Richard Palmer, an experimental physicist at the University of Birmingham (UoB). The aim of the collaboration is to develop methods of preparing small (0.5-2 nm) size-selected inorganic nanoparticles, deposit them on a support and characterise their properties. The DTA student would initially learn to employ both in-house and other internationally leading software to predict the structure and properties of nanoparticles. This is an excellent opportunity to join a successful group and to contribute to the internationally leading research at UCL. More details on the collaboration are provided below.
