"Spicy world of NanoScience" since 2007
The network “POCAONTAS” develops innovative organic solar cells that combine high efficiency and high durability with low production cost. Carbon nanotubes, due to their excellent electronic properties and stability, can help achieve these goals. POCAONTAS brings together top European players together to tackle these issues on the nano-scale. The Postdoctoral Fellow (ER) at Belectric OPV will make solar cells from the materials qualified by the network partners. The ER will characterize the…Continue
We have developed an experimental set up devoted to perform temperature measurements using fluorescent nano-particles dispersed in a liquid phase. Application to the determination of thermal effects in turbulent cavitating flows have been performed recently (F. Ayela et al., Phys. Rev. E 88, 043016 (2013)). We are looking for a post doctoral researcher, familiar with experiments.His/her role will be to bring useful innovations in an experimental set up devoted to perform local thermal…Continue

Airborne particles are a well recognised cause of increased morbidity and mortality in the general population. While the precise influences of particle size and chemical composition upon toxicity have yet to be fully elucidated, there has been a great deal of interest in the ultrafine fraction of less than 100 nanometres diameter which show high toxicity per unit mass. By far the greatest abundance of ultrafine particles in the urban atmosphere arises from emissions from road traffic and…Continue

Large hydrogen and fuel cells companies have substantial hydrogen and fuel cell projects, with hundreds of employed PhD level scientists and engineers. Recruitment has been a problem in recent years since only a handful of UK universities carry out research in this area. The University of Birmingham together with Imperial College London, UCL, University of Nottingham and Loughborough University form the UK’s leading training centre in hydrogen and fuel cells.
Applications are open to…

The project aims to investigate the thermophysical properties of cavitating two-phase flows, with an emphasis to thermal effects associated to viscous heating, liquid – vapor latent heat, and temperature inside a collapsing bubble. Moreover, the knowledge of the average and turbulent velocity distributions, and their correlation with the thermal and density distributions, should be a major advance in fluid mechanics. Because of the poor experimental database for this kind of flow, there is a…Continue
