Optimal Imaging with Present and Future Coherent X-ray Sources
ID: 279753
Start date: 2011-11-01, End date: 2017-10-31
The rapid development of high-brilliance X-ray sources in the last decade has opened the way to extremely powerful imaging modalities. Third generation synchrotron sources and newly built X-ray free-electron lasers offer a very high flux and can produce X-ray beams with excel...

Theoretical Foundations and Observational Tests of Inflationary Cosmology
ID: 279617
Start date: 2011-10-01, End date: 2016-09-30
Observations of the temperature fluctuations in the cosmic microwave background (CMB) have transformed cosmology into a quantitative science. This revolution has led to a detailed understanding of the geometry and composition of the universe. However, the microphysical origin...

Hybrid Photovoltaic Energy Relays
ID: 279881
Start date: 2011-11-01, End date: 2016-10-31
Photovoltaic (PV) solar cells promise to be a major contributor to our future energy supply, and the current silicon and thin film photovoltaic industry is growing at a fast rate (25 to 80% pa). Despite this however, only 10 to 20 GW of the total 15TW global energy demand is ...

Solving the nanostructure problem: Understanding, exploiting and designing functional disordered materials
ID: 279705
Start date: 2011-10-01, End date: 2016-09-30
Many materials of fundamental importance possess structures that do not exhibit long-range periodicity. The absence of Bragg reflections in the diffraction patterns of these materials precludes the use of traditional crystallographic techniques as a means of determining their...

Higher dimensional general relativity: explicit solutions and the classification and stability of black holes
ID: 279363
Start date: 2011-11-01, End date: 2016-10-31
"Higher-dimensional General Relativity (GR) is well-motivated by string theory e.g. via the gauge/gravity correspondence or scenarios that predict black hole production at the Large Hadron Collider. In this proposal it is regarded as a self-contained mathematical subject that...

COLOR Ordering Templated by Hierarchized Supramolecular Porous FlatLANDS
ID: 280183
Start date: 2012-01-01, End date: 2016-12-31
The idea of this research project is to take advantage of molecular self-assembly to create a new generation of periodically-organized porous organic materials that, acting as specific molecular hosts, can structurally control the positioning of multiple functional guests on ...

Interactive Systems Involving Multi-point Surfaces, Haptics and true-3D displays
ID: 278576
Start date: 2011-11-01, End date: 2016-10-31
The grand challenge of this project is to 1) develop integrated multi-point surfaces that include multiple touch points, multiple haptic feedback on fingers (and tangible objects on the surface) and reconfigurable ‘true-3D’ content for a ‘walk-up and use’ scenario; 2) identif...

Diamond Lasers: Revolutionising Laser Engineering
ID: 278389
Start date: 2011-10-01, End date: 2016-09-30
Over the last three years, synthetic single crystal diamond with high optical quality has become available for the first time. The time is thus ripe to exploit this unique material for laser engineering. Building on their pioneering work characterising, modelling and experime...

Organic/inorganic hybrids for solution-processable photonic structures
ID: 279587
Start date: 2011-10-01, End date: 2016-09-30
The realisation that modulated light pulses can be confined over long distances with minimum losses within a structure that comprises a controlled spatial distribution of the refractive index n – as, e.g. in optical fibres – has, without doubt, underpinned the telecommunicati...

Next Generation of 2D-Nanomaterials: Enabling Supercapacitor Development
ID: 278516
Start date: 2011-10-01, End date: 2016-09-30
Climate change and the decreasing availability of fossil fuels require society to move towards sustainable and renewable resources. 2DNanoCaps will focus on electrochemical energy storage, specifically supercapacitors. In terms of performance supercapacitors fill up the gap b...
