  Van der Waals 2D materials: optical manifestations of the quantum physics of moiré superlattices
  Research Group: Inorganic Semiconductors
  Prof A Tartakovskii
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Atomically-thin layers of two-dimensional materials can be assembled in vertical stacks (called ‘heterostructures’), which are held together by relatively weak van der Waals forces, allowing for coupling between monolayer crystals with incommensurate lattices and arbitrary mutual rotation, or ‘twist’.
  High finesse rod resonator circuits for quantum sensing
  Prof P Smith
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Prof Peter Smith. Co-supervisor Dr James Gates. Project description. The objective of this project is to develop a platform for real-world deployable high-finesse optical resonators.
  Scaleable heralded single-photon sources
  Research Group: Photonic Systems Circuits & Sensors
  Prof P Smith
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Co-supervisor. Dr Corin Gawith, Dr James Gates & Dr Christopher Holmes. Project description. Our team specialises in the development and manufacturing of novel optoelectronic devices for applications in quantum technology, integrated optical sensors and laser optics.
  Development of a spatially resolved spectroscopy probe for application in pharmaceutical drying processes
  Dr Y Chen, Dr C Price
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Despite being the most widely studied PAT technologies, to date, most applications of NIR and Raman spectroscopy are carried out using standard measurement geometry without specifying and differentiating spatial arrangement between the incident and collecting optics.
  Theoretical and numerical studies of relativistic laser-plasma interaction and applications
  Prof Z Sheng
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

You might be a potential candidate if you are interested in using high performance computing to discover novel physics or solve key problems in high intensity laser-matter interactions and their applications, particularly in advanced particle accelerators and radiation sources (from THz to X-rays).
  Engineering laser beams for novel interaction with materials and enhanced application functionality
  Prof G Dearden, Dr S Edwardson
Application Deadline: 1 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project will investigate optical techniques for modulating and manipulating light from solid-state pulsed lasers operating in the nanosecond, picosecond and femtosecond regime, and applying these to explore novel mechanisms of interaction with engineering materials.
  Understanding disease mechanisms of Alzheimer’s disease
  Dr X Shu, Dr G Hunter
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project reference number. SHLS19028. Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the most common cause of dementia and is a growing global health concern in the world.
  Using novel technologies to improve visual performance in Age-Related Macular Degeneration
  Dr S Jeon, Dr L Sweeney, Prof N Strang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project reference number. SHLS19029. The prevalence of age related macular degeneration (ARMD) is increasing in the UK; leading to large numbers of older people having difficulty with tasks such as reading and recognising faces.
  Doctor of Engineering (EngD) Short pulse lasers for machining composite materials (Luxinar)
  Prof D Reid, Prof D Esser
Applications accepted all year round
