  Theoretical and numerical studies of relativistic laser-plasma interaction and applications
  Prof Z Sheng
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

You might be a potential candidate if you are interested in using high performance computing to discover novel physics or solve key problems in high intensity laser-matter interactions and their applications, particularly in advanced particle accelerators and radiation sources (from THz to X-rays).
  Astrophysically-relevant QED plasmas in the laboratory
  Research Group: York Plasma Institute
  Dr K Lancaster, Dr C Ridgers
Application Deadline: 21 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our ability to compress more laser energy into shorter duration pulses, has enabled a dramatic increase in the achievable laser intensity and thus the exploration of new regimes of light-matter interaction.
  Femtosecond synchronization for externally-injected laser wakefield acceleration at CLARA
  Dr L Corner, Dr E Snedden
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a fully-funded studentship from Oct 2020 on the development of synchronisation, timing and feedback mechanisms in laser plasma wakefield acceleration (LWFA), held at the University of Liverpool and the Accelerator Science and Technology Centre (AsTeC) at the Daresbury Laboratory.
  Coherent and incoherent attosecond x-ray sources based on laser-plasma interactions
  Prof D Jaroszynski
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

PhDs are offered in an exciting and challenging research area, with a vibrant group of experimentalists and theoreticians developing and applying ultra-compact accelerators and x-ray sources based on laser-plasma interactions.
  Diagnostics and targetry for laser-plasma interaction experiments at high-repetition rate
  Dr D Margarone, Dr S Kar
Application Deadline: 14 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The fast development of high power laser technology over the past two decades has allowed to explore new regimes of laser-matter interaction under extreme conditions.
  Hybrid beam-driven plasma wakefield acceleration for highest brightness beams
  Prof B Hidding
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are on a quest towards ultracompact electron accelerators and 5th generation light sources -- transformative ultrafast microscopes for the 21st century.
  Proton radiography investigations of laser-plasma interaction dynamics in high-intensity regimes
  Prof M Borghesi, Dr C Brown
Application Deadline: 14 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The interaction of ultra-intense laser pulses with matter generates large currents of relativistic electrons whose flow into the irradiated targets and through their surfaces leads to the generation of very large, highly transient electric and magnetic fields.
  Quantum effects in high-intensity laser-driven plasma and novel searches for dark matter
  Dr D Burton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The new generation of high-intensity laser facilities is expected to provide a new avenue for probing quantum electrodynamics in parameters ranges that are currently inaccessible to high-energy colliders.
  Probing metamaterials dynamics by high repetition rate attosecond pulse from multi-colour synthesised strong laser field.
  Dr A Zair
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Attosecond pulses production and characterisation were a tremendous breakthrough is ultra-fast science that enabled the observation in real time of electronic motion in molecular system in gas phase.
  Laser induced breakdown spectroscopy for subsea applications
  Dr T Thevar, Dr K Nakkeeran
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) is a widely used technique to obtain the elemental constituents of a sample. The process uses a short pulse of focused laser light to evaporate a minute volume of a target substance by highly localized heating to temperatures greater than 5000 K.
