  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.
  Ground to space laser communications through atmospheric turbulence
  Dr J Osborn, Prof G D Love
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a 3.5 year fully funded EPSRC PhD research studentship to develop concepts and technologies to advance the capabilities of free-space optical communication links.
  Autonomous wireless optical energy harvesting systems for smart homes and indoor applications
  Dr S Mohamed, Dr S Sinanovic, Dr R Ramirez Iniguez
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

SEBE-19-002. Smart homes and buildings are becoming more popular and widely deployed. One main attractive feature in them is their ability to save energy and reduce carbon footprint via energy harvesting and powering devices autonomously.
  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.
  Data fusion approaches for high-speed imaging in highly scattering media
  Dr J Leach
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project’s aim is to develop a low-power consumption, light-weight video imaging system that can measure in 3D continuously at speeds greater than 1000 frames per second.
  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].
  High-dimensional measurement-device-independent quantum systems
  Dr J Leach
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In recent years, device-independent systems have become of significant interest in quantum technology. A system that is device independent provides the highest level of security for quantum protocols.
  PhD - Development of Planar Waveguide Based Gas Sensors for Challenging Environments (AWE)- University of St Andrews
  Prof D Reid, Dr A Di Falco
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Description. This project looks to draw on the expertise within the CDT in Applied Photonics to support the development of novel optical sensing technologies to support AWE in its mission to support and maintain the UK’s nuclear deterrent.
