  PhD on nonlinear optics and laser physics in passive resonators
  Dr M Erkintalo, Assoc Prof S. G. Murdoch
Application Deadline: 28 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

A fully funded PhD studentship is available starting as soon as possible to work on nonlinear optics in passive resonators. The resonant enhancement of laser light launched into an optical cavity can be leveraged to increase the strength of nonlinear light-matter interactions.
  Ultra-stable fibre optics using new-generation optical fibres
  Dr R Slavik, Dr F Poletti, Dr E Numkam Fokoua, Prof D Richardson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are looking for a candidate with an interest in fibre optics and a degree or masters’ degree in physics or electronics to join us in researching the applications of brand new hollow core optical fibres developed at the University of Southampton (see ‘Further information’ below).
  PhD Studentship in Quantum optics and photonics: integrated components from quantum mechanics to quantum technologies
  Dr A Politi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a postgraduate student to join a new research project in the Quantum nanoPhotonics (QnP) group at the University of Southampton.
  Ultra-nonlinear epsilon-near-zero flat optics
  Dr M Ferrera
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Design and characterisation of different artificial materials for the design of ultra-fast tuneable photonics devices. Giant epsilon-near-zero nonlinearities are targeted to allow subwavelength manipulation of light in both classic and quantum regime.
  Doctor or Engineering (EngD): Electro-optic devices for extreme LIDAR in highly dynamic environments
  Prof D Reid, Prof D P Hand
Application Deadline: 30 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Description. LIDAR / LADAR has become widespread in recent years, and uses pulse lasers to make time of flight measurements in order to build up a digital model of a scene.
  Quantum Optics of Giant Rydberg Excitons in Cuprous Oxide
  Research Group: Condensed Matter and Photonics
  Prof W W Langbein, Dr S Lynch
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cuprous oxide (Cu2O) is one the oldest, and yet least well-known, semiconductor material. It has a slightly larger band gap than silicon, which means that the single crystal form of the material is slightly transparent in the visible part of the spectrum.
  Doctor of Engineering (EngD) - Ultrafast laser inscription of components for quantum technologies
  Prof A Kar, Prof D Reid
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Ultrafast Laser Inscription technique exploits the high fields present at the focus of an ultrafast pulse train to modify transparent materials.
  A source of quantum light for atom magnetometry
  Dr V Boyer
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

When using classical light, optical measurements and light-based sensing methods are limited by the unavoidable quantum fluctuations in phase and amplitude, also known as shot noise.
  Fluorescence Lifetime Micro-endoscopic Camera System for Clinical Optical Imaging
  Dr R.K Henderson, Dr N Finlayson
Application Deadline: 27 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The EPSRC IRC Proteus (Proteus) - Multiplexed ’Touch and Tell’ Optical Molecular Sensing and Imaging - Lifetime and Beyond” is an Interdisciplinary Research Collaboration between the Universities of Edinburgh, Bath, Heriot Watt, Durham and Dundee.
  Computational Biomedical Imaging: building a better light-sheet microscope
  Dr J Taylor, Prof A Harvey
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A PhD studentship is available in the Imaging Concepts Group at Glasgow University, researching computational imaging for light sheet fluorescence microscopy (LSFM).
