  1. Simultaneous charge and light gain measurements with a TPC prototype
    This is a project with the Dark Matter Research group, focused on some of the instrumentation and methods used in dark matter search experiments. The project is lab-based, and will involve measurements with a Time Projection Chamber (TPC) in the RHUL Dark Matter Lab. (A TPC is a large-volume gas detector used to detect and track charged particles in 3D.)

  1. 1D Ballistic Wires
    Measure or model the electrical and thermal transport properties of a one dimensional device.
  2. Resistance of a Two-Dimensional Electron Gas
    Solve Laplace’s equations subject to boundary conditions to find how the currect flows in different geometries. Needs Python and/or FlexPDE.

Dr Philipp Niklowitz - Low Temperature Physics

  1. Thermodynamic properties of weakly magnetic metals
    You will investigate the thermodynamic properties from room temperature to low temperatures of a weakly magnetic metal, in which the interactions between electrons can lead to deviations from normal metallic behaviour.
  2. Electrical transport properties of metals at the border of a quantum phase transition
    In this project, you will use resistivity measurements of metals close to a quantum phase transition, a phase transition at low temperatures. You will measure the temperature and magnetic-field dependence in order to investigate excitations characteristic for quantum phase transitions.

Dr Philipp Niklowitz - Condensed Matter Physics

  1. Simulation of neutron scattering of magnetic materials
    Projects will involve application of available software to specific problems and coding of new simulation tools. Simulations will be compared to neutron scattering data of metallic systems near magnetic quantum phase transitions with relevance to critical phenomena and magnetically mediated superconductivity.

  1. Investigation into the effects of a rogue body on the stability of the Solar System using 2-Dimensional n-body simulations
    Stability of the solar system using N-body computer simulation.
