  Fast, reliable and secure wireless IoT chaos-based communication
  Dr M S Baptista
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project tackles scientific issues aimed at creating and laying the mathematical foundations of an innovative Wireless IoT Communication System…
  Application of digital holography for underwater measurements
  Dr T Thevar, Dr S S Aphale
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Underwater digital holography is a powerful technique to study marine organisms and marine pollution (e.g. micro-plastics), marine evolution, etc.
  Laser induced breakdown spectroscopy for subsea applications
  Dr T Thevar, Dr K Nakkeeran
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) is a widely used technique to obtain the elemental constituents of a sample. The process uses a short pulse of focused laser light to evaporate a minute volume of a target substance by highly localized heating to temperatures greater than 5000 K.
  Optical Fibre Lasers
  Dr K Nakkeeran, Dr S S Aphale
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Optical fibre lasers are widely used in many fields. In the recent past lots of research going on in optical fibre lasers for various applications.
  Optical Fibre Sensors
  Dr K Nakkeeran, Dr S S Aphale
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Optical fibre sensors are widely used in many fields. In the recent past lots of research going on in optical fibre sensors related to Fibre Bragg Grating (FBG) and Photonic Crystal Fibres (PCF).
  Quantum Optics of Giant Rydberg Excitons in Cuprous Oxide
  Research Group: Condensed Matter and Photonics
  Prof W W Langbein, Dr S Lynch
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cuprous oxide (Cu2O) is one the oldest, and yet least well-known, semiconductor material. It has a slightly larger band gap than silicon, which means that the single crystal form of the material is slightly transparent in the visible part of the spectrum.
  Creating photonic analogues of bilayer 2D materials
  Dr P. Bianucci
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

When two layers of a 2D materials are assembled into a structure, rich new behaviours can appear, such as the superconductivity at the magic angle in bilayer graphene.
  Design and properties of “photonic graphene” and other photonic analogues of 2D materials
  Dr P. Bianucci
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Graphene is a very interesting 2D material, with very interesting properties. Some of those properties come from the particular arrangement of its carbon atoms in a honeycomb lattice.
  Design of topological nanowire lasers using modified honeycomb lattices of III-V nanowires
  Dr P. Bianucci
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In this project, we investigate novel science in photonics and develop novel metaphotonic lasers using technologically important materials.
  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.
  Spin Dynamics in Multilayer Organic Photovoltaics and Organic Light-Emitting Diode Films (Ref: ReNU/Hindmarch)
  Dr A.T. Hindmarch
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Renewable Energy Northeast Universities (ReNU) is a collaborative doctoral training programme run by the Universities of Northumbria, Newcastle and Durham.
  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.
  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.
  Fully-funded PhD positions in several natural sciences & engineering disciplines

Funding Type

PhD Type
