Potential student research projects
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.
This project aims to investigate how the mechnical properties of plant cells change with 'poking' from an external source. In nature the poking is by a pathogen. We mimic this effect with a diamond tip.

This is a multi-faceted project which can be adapted to students at the honours level and above. A number of possibilities exist to perform experiments directed towards improving the use of positrons in medice, mostly focussed on Positron Emission Tomography (PET).
