  Optimization of Ultra-fast Laser Based Production Processes
  Dr R Carter, Prof D P Hand
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Laser based manufacturing processes have become industry standard tools in a wide range of areas with scales as diverse as automotive and shipbuilding down to electronic circuits and micro medical devices.
  3D laser beam shaping
  Dr R Carter, Dr J D Shephard
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Combining 2D beam shaping elements (including refractive and diffractive elements) with bespoke focussing optics to shape a laser beam though the entire focal volume rather than in a single focal plane.
  Advanced multiscale modelling and simulations of nucleate boiling on special surfaces – EMBOSS project
  Dr P Valluri, Dr T Krueger
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Boiling is a common but fundamental phenomena required in modern manufacturing equipment. Typically, boiling begins with nucleation on a heated surface.
  Aerial and satellite based quantum communications
  Dr R Donaldson
Application Deadline: 31 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Quantum communications offers a realistic possibility to share encryption keys that are future proof against advances in hacking algorithms and secure against eavesdropping attacks.
  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.
  Compact high energy lasers for deep-tissue microscopy
  Dr R A McCracken
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Deep-tissue multiphoton microscopy has the potential to provide rapid advances in neurology and cancer research, but access to this technology is limited by the high cost of the laser source.
  Doctor of Engineering (EngD): Computational Techniques for the Flat Imager
  Prof D Reid
Application Deadline: 30 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

MBDA has patented a novel infrared (IR) imaging device known within the company as the Flat Imager. The Flat Imager is similar in design to a TOMBO* imaging system, in so far as the device will capture multiple similar images of a scene.
  Doctor of Engineering (Eng D): Process optimisation strategies for multiple COSI techniques
  Prof D Reid, Dr C Clemente, Prof S Marshall
Application Deadline: 30 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

MBDA is expanding its research into Computational Optical Sensing and Imaging (COSI). One area of interest is Structured Imaging using, for example, Ladar (Laser Detecting and Ranging) to map a scene in real-time.
  Doctor of Engineering (EngD) Short pulse lasers for machining composite materials (Luxinar)
  Prof D Reid, Prof D Esser
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project not available to non UK/EU applicants. The EngD is an alternative to a traditional PhD aimed at students wanting a career in industry.
  I/O and storage for extreme scale multi-physics multi-scale simulations of aero engines
  Dr M Weiland
Application Deadline: 31 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Engineering simulations, in particular multi-physics and multi-scale whole engine simulations, such as those targeted by the ASiMoV Prosperity Partnership…
