GrapheneNOWNANO & Bruker have joined forces to offer an excellent opportunity to undertake studies leading to a PhD in nanoscience focused on understanding how scanning probe microscopy (SPM) can contribute to exploring 2D materials and devices. The project will be centred on exploring the physical, electrical and magnetic properties of 2D materials and their interaction with the nanoscale materials using novel imaging modes.
The successful applicant will be part of the Graphene NOWNANO Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) (www.graphene-nownano.manchester.ac.uk). The CDT is a partnership between the University of Manchester and Lancaster University. It builds on the two partners’ world-leading expertise in the science and technology of graphene and other 2D materials. The CDT builds upon and is run jointly with our NOWNANO programme established in 2009.
Key points of the PhD
