  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.
  3D printing of micro-scale graded shape memory components for in-vivo actuated medical devices
  Prof D P Hand
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Micro-robots for medicine require highly controlled actuation at a micro-scale to provide controlled motion, testing of tissue compliance, biopsy, etc, and this is a prospect offered by functionally-graded shape memory alloys (SMAs).
  Object Detection and Tracking Using High-Speed 3D Image Sensors
  Dr I Gyongy
Application Deadline: 29 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

3D image capture by existing LIDAR and Time-of-Flight (ToF) sensors is typically limited to relatively low frame rates due to bottleneck issues in the data readout and/or the necessity for optical scanning to cover a sufficiently large field of view.
  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.
  Frontiers of ultrafast laser fabrication
  Prof R Thomson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ultrafast lasers offer unprecedented fabrication capabilities in terms of precision and three-dimensional flexibility. These capabilities are opening up previously impossible capabilities, such as three-dimension nano-lithography in bulk crystals [1], and the creation of unique mode-selective fibre Bragg-gratings [2].
  Astrophotonic technologies for exoplanet hunting
  Prof R Thomson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Photonic technologies facilitate the manipulation of light in ways that are simply not possible using traditional optical technologies e.g.
  Ultra-high resolution microendoscopy
  Prof R Thomson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Microendoscopy is a remarkable imaging technique that exploits single optical fibres with thousands of light guiding cores to image structures in confined regions of the body with ~ micron level resolution.
  Novel platforms for integrated quantum devices based on rare earth doped insulating materials
  Dr M Mazzera
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We offer a 3-year PhD position for a talented, proactive, and strongly motivated candidate who will contribute building a new setup with potential for ground breaking scientific research in the field of solid-state quantum memories for quantum communication applications.
  Doctor or Engineering (EngD): Electro-optic devices for extreme LIDAR in highly dynamic environments
  Prof D Reid
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.
