Project Rationale. Planktic foraminifera are unicellular protists that secrete a 100-1000 m multi-chambered shell during their four week life cycle.
  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.
  Dynamically-tuneable optical metasurfaces for laser implosion fusion applications
  Prof C D Wright, Dr J Bertolotti
Application Deadline: 31 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Joint supervisors. Prof. C. David Wright and Dr Jacopo Bertolotti. External partner. AWE PLC (Dr A. J. Comley). Inertial confinement fusion (ICF), a scheme in which powerful lasers are used to compress and ignite a cryogenic pellet of deuterium-tritium fuel, is one route towards a clean energy source of the future [1].
  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.
  Plasma-assisted technologies for clean combustion
  Dr K Volkov
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The successful ignition of a combustible mixture not only initiates the combustion but also influences the subsequent combustion process.
  Toward a new generation of high-power THz radiation sources
  Dr M Hasan, Prof Y-C Huang
Application Deadline: 31 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Despite the great development of electromagnetic radiation sources in the 20th century; sources in the THz band, creating the “THz gap” in the electromagnetic spectrum.
  Coupling shell growth and geochemistry in giant clams to explore biomineralization pathways
  Dr S Sosdian, Dr K Johnson, Dr D Muir, Dr E John
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Background. Bivalves belonging to the subfamily Tridacnidae (the so-called ‘giant clams’) play an important ecological role in tropical reef environments, providing food and shelter to a wide variety of organisms, contributing to the reef framework, and counteracting eutrophication.
  Evaluation of Metal Leaching from Implantable Medical Devices
  Dr A Managh, Dr B Cousins
Application Deadline: 28 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD studentship seeks to apply state-of the art laser ablation technology developed at Loughborough University to improve understanding of heavy metal ions in biomaterials research.
