We have 285 optical PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

Fully–funded PhD Studentship with the Optical Networks Group, Department of Electronic & Electrical Engineering, UCL

Applicants are invited to apply for a fully funded 4-year UK home PhD studentship in the Optical Networks Group, Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering at University College London (UCL), one of the world-leading optical communications research groups in the world. Read more

Developing optical beamshaping approaches for optical trapping and optical tweezering of aerosols

These projects are open to students worldwide, but have no funding attached. Therefore, the successful applicant will be expected to fund tuition fees at the relevant level (home or international) and any applicable additional research costs. Read more

Space Optical Communications

The University of Auckland is developing a research programme in optical communications between ground and orbiting satellites. We are looking for a PhD candidate to adapt an existing optical telescope, and build optical instrumentation to demonstrate optical communications from satellites in low earth orbit. Read more

Distributed Sensing in Complex Photonic Network Ensembles

Apply to pursue a PhD in the Optical Theory Group, led by Matthew Foreman, where you will explore optical and plasmonic properties of random complex networks and develop novel sensing algorithms. Read more

Vacuum Hollow-core Optical Fibres

Supervisory Team: Prof. Radan Slavik, Dr. Peter Horak, Dr. Natalie Wheeler. Project description. We are looking for a PhD student to join our growing team of students, postdocs, and senior researchers. Read more
