Doctor of Engineering (EngD) - Compact, ultra-sensitive gas sensing techniques (Fraunhofer and University of Strathclyde)

  Research Group: CDT in Applied Photonics
The proposed project will focus on the development of the detection and sensing techniques based on the photothermal effects. It will comprise of the development and characterization of miniature transducers, optical systems enabling this phenomenon as well as the instrumentation required to drive the system. Read more

Doctor of Engineering (EngD) - Optical communications in challenging environments (Fraunhofer and University of Strathclyde)

  Research Group: CDT in Applied Photonics
Visible light communication is an emerging field that is likely to form a key strand of the next generations of communications protocols offering increased bandwidth compared to radio frequency (RF) comms, license-free operation, and, in some situations, increased security. Read more

Under-water Optical Communication (EPS2022/28)

Underwater wireless sensor network (UWSN) that consists of many distributed nodes (such as seabed sensors, relay buoys, autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) and remotely operated underwater vehicles (ROVs), and etc.) is becoming increasingly important and widely used for offshore ocean exploration. Read more

Novel femtosecond fibre lasers for deep ultraviolet light generation (EPS2022/26)

This PhD project is focussed on the development of a new class of deep ultraviolet light sources based on novel mode-locked fibre laser architectures and nonlinear optics in gas-filled hollow-core fibres. Read more

Integrated quantum memories for quantum communication applications (EPS2022/22)

Rare earth ion doped crystals are particularly attractive as materials for quantum memory implementations because they are ensembles of optically active ions naturally trapped in inert media. Read more

High-speed secure optical communication (EPS2022/14)

High-speed imaging is a powerful tool for capturing ultrafast transient phenomena in a variety of applications such as microfluidics, fluidic dynamics, combustion, and ballistics studies. Read more

Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) - Sample-adaptive smart microscopy (Cairn Research and University of Glasgow)

  Research Group: CDT in Applied Photonics
3D timelapse microscope imaging of biological samples is revolutionising biology, unlocking the ability to directly witness events such as cell-cell interactions whose location in time and space cannot be predicted in advance. Read more

PhD in satellite quantum communication (EPS2022/33)

The Edinburgh Mostly Quantum Lab (EMQL) offers a PhD position in satellite quantum communication. Quantum communication allows for unconditionally secure encryption of messages. Read more

Next generation components for quantum communications (EPS2022/18)

The Single‑Photon Group at Heriot‑Watt University offer a four year fully funded PhD position examining aspects of quantum communications, including quantum amplifiers and quantum random number generators. Read more

Modelling of nonlinear devices for ultrafast photonics and quantum optics (EPS2022/17)

The PhD project will use a variant of the generalised nonlinear Schrodinger equation (GNSLE) to model parametric processes, in which energy is exchanged between waves through chi(2) and chi(3) effects, and apply the model to the pulse evolution in nonlinear crystals and optical fibers. Read more
