  Nature Inspired Optical Nanostructures for Sensing
  Dr R Gupta
Applications accepted all year round
The wings of a morpho butterfly show vivid blue colour because of the presence of periodic nanostructures. We have been developing photochemistries and materials to fabricate similar nanostructures made of hydrogels.
  Quantum Plasmonics: theory and simulation on the non-classical behaviour of nanoplasmonics
  Dr A Demetriadou
Application Deadline: 31 August 2019
When light illuminates nano-sized metallic structures, the free electrons in the metal collectively oscillate, creating `plasmons’.
  Quantum simulations with Bose-Einstein Condensates
  Dr G Barontini
Applications accepted all year round
We use modern techniques of laser cooling and magnetic and optical trapping to reach the lowest temperatures in the universe – just a few billionths of a degree above absolute zero – in very dilute atomic samples.
  Simulation of quantum transport with cold atoms
  Dr V Boyer
Applications accepted all year round
Quantum mechanics is believed to play a role in certain natural processes such as light harvesting. For example certain bacteria are capable of capturing the energy of an incoming photon and transporting the resulting excitation to the reaction centre with great efficiency.
  Advanced THz microscopy for biological applications
  Dr M Navarro-Cia
Applications accepted all year round
Sandwiched between microwaves and infrared in the electromagnetic spectrum, THz radiation (ca. 0.1 – 3 THz) holds promise for medical diagnosis, security applications (chemical fingerprinting and standoff screening) and industrial control processes.
  A source of quantum light for atom magnetometry
  Dr V Boyer
Applications accepted all year round
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.
  Ultracold single-atom quantum engines
  Dr G Barontini
Applications accepted all year round
The technological progress is pushing towards the realization of smaller scale devices and, at the ultimate level, machines will be built only with one or a few atoms.
  Ultra-sensitive atomic magnetometry for brain function diagnostics
  Dr V Guarrera
Applications accepted all year round
The huge progress achieved in the manipulation of quantum systems is opening novel routes towards the generation of realistic quantum-based technology.
  Quantum and noninear optics of a cold-atom ring laser with controlled dispersion
  Dr J Goldwin
Applications accepted all year round
When a pulse of light propagates through a medium it becomes distorted, and may appear to slow down, speed up, or even reverse direction.
  Contact lenses for colour blind patients
  Dr H Butt, Prof S Dimov
Applications accepted all year round
Nanotechnology has a myriad of possible biomedical applications. A PhD position exists in the area of wearable bio-technologies with the focus on producing contact lenses for colour blind patients.
