  Free-space quantum communication technology (EPS2020/26)
  Dr R Donaldson
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The use of free-space optical links rather than optical-fibre for quantum communications offers a range of new applications. During this PhD, the student will investigate the use of satellites, aerial platforms, and static links for quantum communications.
  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.
  Open hardware and software for modular, automated microscopy
  Dr R Bowman
Application Deadline: 9 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The University of Bath is inviting applications for the following PhD project supervised by Dr Richard Bowman https://researchportal.bath.ac.uk/en/persons/richard-bowman/ in the Department of Physics.
  Theory for the Quantum Entangled states of cold atoms controlled with extreme light
  Dr A Demetriadou
Application Deadline: 15 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

When light illuminates a dielectric object, it is transmitted and reflected. By controlling the topology of such objects (for example their geometry and periodic arrangement), one can direct and concentrate light at extremely small and sub-wavelength volumes, tremendously increasing the light intensity at the same time.
  Ultrafast dynamics of isolated chromophores (BULLJU20SF)
  Dr J Bull
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A motivated and enthusiastic student is sought for a PhD in Physical Chemistry/Chemical Physics that will apply ultrafast lasers to understand excited dynamics in molecules of biological and technological importance.
  PhD position in the field of nonlinear and quantum optics with polaritons in semiconductor nanostructures
  Research Group: Inorganic Semiconductors
  Dr D Krizhanovskii
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recent advances in semiconductor nano-technology lead to a new generation of robust controllable structures where manipulation of coupling between light and matter can be performed on a submicrometer scale.
  Sub-wavelength all-dielectric nano-photonics: 2D materials and beyond
  Research Group: Inorganic Semiconductors
  Prof A Tartakovskii
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

So far nano-photonics has dealt with dielectric devices relying on confining light in diffraction-limited volumes. Beating the diffraction limit by confining light on sub-wavelength scales has been only possible with plasmonic structures made of nano-structured metal, which unavoidably suffer from large optical losses.
  Self-organized atomic phases via diffractive light coupling
  Dr G Robb, Prof T Ackemann, Prof G-L Oppo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recent years have seen huge progress in using well controlled cold atom systems to simulate complex quantum phases. Many schemes involve light-mediated coupling in cavities or free space.
  Regioregular phthalocyanines for phototherapy
  Dr R Edkins
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project based within Dr Robert Edkins’ Group will use synthetic chemistry and photophysical measurements to develop phthalocyanines for photothermal and photodynamic therapy with combined photoacoustic or fluorescence capabilities.
  Marie Sklodowska-Curie Early Stage Researcher (ESR) - Understanding lipid membranes at the nanoscale through nonlinear optical microscopy at membrane-nanoparticle interfaces
  Prof P Borri
Application Deadline: 19 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

**Important note. Interviews will be held on 9-10th Jan 2020 and invited applicants will be required to give a 10 minute presentation detailing your research work relevant to the position**.
