Abstract: Since the first demonstration of photoelectrochemical water splitting using TiO2, this route to renewable hydrogen fuel has been pursued with great endeavor. Some of the most promising materials for water oxidation are metal oxides, as they are often water stable, show high resistance to photocorrosion and can be grown by low cost and upscalable methodologies such as chemical vapour deposition (CVD).

Abstract:  Our modern life relies on polymers, from the materials that are used to make our houses, our cars, our clothes to those with advanced applications in medicine, aeronautics and electronics. Many polymers contribute considerably to improve the quality of life but many of these materials are made from fossil fuel based resources. Due to the rapid depletion of oil, it now appears crucial to develop sustainable manufacturing processes using renewable feedstock.1

LCN Announces New PhD Studentships Available

Embargo Date: 
Monday, 30 October 2017 - 12:42pm

The London Centre for Nanotechnology at UCL is offering several 4-year PhD studentships to start in October 2018. 

The studentships are available to UK/EU nationals who have settled status in the UK (no restrictions on how long you can stay) and have been "ordinarily resident" in the UK for 3 years prior to the start of the studentship.

The studentships will be awarded primarily on the basis of academic excellence. To be considered, you must be nominated by one of the Principle Investigators (PI’s) at the LCN at UCL. The full list of eligible supervisors is given below.
