Potential 3rd year special topics

The Research School of Physics & Engineering performs research at the cutting edge of a wide range of disciplines.

By undertaking your own research project at RSPE you could open up an exciting career in science.


Plasma Applications and Technology

Physics of negative ion plasmas

This project is concerned with studying highly electronegative plasmas which can open new frontiers for both basic and applied studies. 

Dr Cormac Corr

Dry etching of III-V semiconductors

Plasma etching of III-V compound semiconductors will be investigated as a function of gas chemistry, sample temperature and process pressure and optimised in terms of etch smoothness and low plasma damages.

Dr Fouad Karouta

The principles and design of a plasma wakefield accelerator

In this project the principles and design of a plasma wakefield accelerator will be reviewed, and the opportunities for a low-cost wakefield accelerator explored.
