Swansea University Fully Funded Scholarship for PhD in Physics

Fully Funded STFC and Swansea University Post-Graduate Scholarship for Physicist


The Swansea University Fully Funded Scholarship for Ph.D. in Physics application is open for eligible candidates of all nationalities.



The strong interaction force of particle physics has generated a lot of interest in the scientific community. One of its unique characteristics is its ability to bind quarks into protons, neutrons, and other hadrons with the strength equivalent to that of three elephants combined (15 tonnes), whereas at high temperatures similar to those experienced after the Big Bang, it grows weak and hadrons stop clinging together. Further exploring this confinement factor and temperature manipulation are subjects of intense research and a $1M Millennium Prize.

Research for the Ph.D. thesis is being conducted on the enigma behind “confinement”. One proposed approach involves carrying out computations relating to central vortices, seeing as they’re appearing as a major part of strong interaction’s fundamentals and are also fundamentally correlated with confinement itself. A second potential strategy includes using numerical simulations on hadron spectrums to understand the temperature-dependent properties of confinement, using unfamiliar systems capable of specifying deconfinement alongside similar phenomena including resonance widening.
