  Doctor of Engineering (EngD) - Ultrashort-Pulse Optical Frequency Combs for Quantum Technologies and Sensing (University of Strathclyde)
  Prof A Kemp, Prof D Reid
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Optical frequency combs are key to many Quantum Technologies. providing the ‘clockwork’ that stably links supremely accurate optical clocks to radio-frequency information that can be more readily exploited; and generating the ultra-stable microwave frequencies that will be required for next-generation Doppler LIDAR.
  PhD position on structured light lasers - available now at Strathclyde
  Dr A Arnold, Prof E Riis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A structured light laser. A picture is worth a thousand words; and in a very real sense, images encoded in the profile of a laser provide a highly efficient method to encrypt and convey information.
  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).
  Coherent and incoherent attosecond x-ray sources based on laser-plasma interactions
  Prof D Jaroszynski
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

PhDs are offered in an exciting and challenging research area, with a vibrant group of experimentalists and theoreticians developing and applying ultra-compact accelerators and x-ray sources based on laser-plasma interactions.
  Doctor of Engineering (EngD) Fiber optic components and sub-systems for communication and sensing in harsh environments (Gooch & Housego) - University of Strathclyde
  Prof D Reid, Prof C Michie, Dr W Johnstone
Application Deadline: 30 July 2019
