  Optical Interferometric Biosensor with Lab-on-Chip
  Dr R Gupta
Application Deadline: 30 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to develop an interferometric biosensor integrated with microchip electrophoresis for potential applications in point-of-care diagnostics.
  Ellipsometric dual comb LIDAR (ELIDAR)
  Dr S Sergeyev
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Dual-Comb Spectroscopy (DCS) technique explores two laser pulse trains with slightly different repetition rates toenable detection of the beating (interferogram) between the signal reflected from the moving target (Doppler LIDAR) and reference comb by a single detector.
  Quantum simulations with Bose-Einstein Condensates
  Dr G Barontini
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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

Funding Type

PhD Type

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

Funding Type

PhD Type

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

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.
  Ultracold single-atom quantum engines
  Dr G Barontini
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
