PhD Studentship
Department of Physics

This 3.5 year studentship is available with a start date of October  
2009 and provides a tax-free EPSRC stipend, plus university fees at  
the Home/EU rate and travel funds.
This studentship is fully funded only for UK and EU students. The  
successful candidate should have a good degree in physics, or a  
closely related subject.
Multi-Band Superconductivity and High Pressure Studies of the Vortex  
Lattice in Type II Superconductors using Neutron Small Angle  
Scattering (SAS)

The project is to work on development of SAS investigations of the  
crystallography of the flux-line lattice in multi-band  
superconductors at ambient and high pressures (up to 10 GPa). The  
project is based on our previous studies of diffraction from the flux- 
line lattice in the mixed state of a range of superconducting  
materials with unusual superconducting ground states. This work has  
been essential in providing information on the symmetry of the  
superconducting state and various phase transitions of the vortex  
lattice for a range of conventional and exotic superconductors.

The vast majority of unconventional (and even many conventional)  
superconductors have a multi-band character whose role is essential  
in determining their superconducting nature. Such work has never, to  
date, been performed under external hydrostatic pressure.
We have now identified a number of cases where small samples may be  
used and interesting results obtained for the limited constraints  
imposed by the low temperature, high pressure configurations.
Experimental work will be based both at Warwick as well as the  
Institut Laue Langevin (ILL), Grenoble, France and other European  
Neutron sources.
