Plasma diagnostics and engineering of a novel plasma based technology

Job Description



 Project DescriptionThe PlasmaGrain project will develop and understand a novel plasma based technology for cereal grain preservation as an environmentally friendly alternative to fumigants and pesticides. This project will elucidate the fundamental mechanisms of action for non- thermal plasma technology.
 Student requirements for this project: Physics study of Bio-system Interactions with Cold Plasma
The successful applicant will work in the laboratory to develop a new cold plasma system that will be used for bio-system activation. The part of the PhD study will be also electrical and optical plasma diagnostics. Applicants for this position should possess an honours degree at 2.1 level or above in Physics, Applied Physics or Electrical Engineering area. Applicants should have a demonstrable knowledge of optical spectroscopy, atomic and molecular physics, electrical circuit design and programming languages.  Applicants should also possess a good working knowledge of laboratory procedures have an interest in characterisation and optimisation of a plasma system.
