  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.
  Time-domain characterization of Terahertz surface scattering and inhomogeneous media for communication and remote sensing
  Dr M Navarro-Cia, Dr C Constantinou
Application Deadline: 3 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The frequency range between 0.1 and 3 THz holds promise for a myriad of applications such as high-speed communication and remote sensing.
  Ultra compact optical sensors for on-machine measurements
  Dr P Kinnell
Application Deadline: 1 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In advanced manufacturing sensor data must be used to achieve the increasingly tight tolerance requirements required for the latest products.
  Doctor of Engineering (EngD) - Optical sensors for monitoring and control of ultra-short pulsed laser manufacturing processes (MTC)
  Prof D Reid, Prof D P Hand
Application Deadline: 30 January 2020

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.
  Anti-reflecting and Anti-soiling coatings for solar panel cover glass
  Prof M Walls, Dr P Isherwood
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The provision of clean, sustainable energy is one of the greatest challenges facing modern society and solar photovoltaics (PV) provide the best opportunity for rapidly expanding renewable energy.
  Topological insulator plasmonics
  Dr J Freeman
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Topological insulators (TIs) are a new type of material that has recently been discovered. They have highly conductive surface states, while their ‘bulk’ remains insulating.
  Joint PhD with University of Manchester: Quantum measurement of donors in near-surface ion implanted devices
  Prof D Jamieson, Prof R Curry
Application Deadline: 20 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Einstein’s most revolutionary idea, of the light quantum, has led to the concept for radical new types of quantum technology that uses the strange rules of quantum mechanics to process information encoded in quantum bits, qubits.
  Development of next generation thin film solar cells
  Prof M Walls, Dr J Bowers
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The provision of clean, sustainable energy is one of the greatest challenges facing modern society and solar photovoltaics (PV) provide the best opportunity for rapidly expanding renewable energy.
  Machine learning to locate defects in ultrasonic inspection images
  Prof T Cootes, Dr M Fergie
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

It is important that manufactured components are inspected to identify defects which may cause early failure, particularly in safety critical systems.
  Platform Development for Diamond Quantum and Photonic Technologies
  Prof M E Newton, Dr B Green
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ability to optical initialisation, manipulation and readout of spin state of the nitrogen vacancy (NV-) defect in diamond at room temperature has ensured that this defect is recognised as one of the most promising systems for quantum magnetic/electric field as well as temperature sensing and a range of other quantum technologies.
