  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.
  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.
  Microphotonic Materials and Structures for Chipscale Sensors
  Dr N Laurand, Dr M Strain
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our team at the Institute of Photonics is at the cutting-edge of research in photonic materials and devices for the application of light to solve challenges.
  Optical Communications for Small Satellites
  Dr N Rattenbury, Dr J Cater
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Faculties of Science and Engineering are jointly developing a space systems programme at The University of Auckland.
  Open hardware and software for modular, automated microscopy
  Dr R Bowman
Application Deadline: 9 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The University of Bath is inviting applications for the following PhD project supervised by Dr Richard Bowman https://researchportal.bath.ac.uk/en/persons/richard-bowman/ in the Department of Physics.
  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].
  Automation of THz imaging for Medical Diagnosis
  Dr E MacPherson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Are you interested in applying physics to situations that could benefit medical diagnosis?. Terahertz (10^12 Hz, THz) pulsed imaging is a new technique with high resolution (about 20 μm) and has only emerged recently as a potential new clinical tool for medical imaging.
  Marie Sklodowska-Curie Early Stage Researcher (ESR) - Understanding lipid membranes at the nanoscale through nonlinear optical microscopy at membrane-nanoparticle interfaces
  Prof P Borri
Application Deadline: 19 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

**Important note. Interviews will be held on 9-10th Jan 2020 and invited applicants will be required to give a 10 minute presentation detailing your research work relevant to the position**.
  Ultra-high resolution microendoscopy
  Prof R Thomson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Microendoscopy is a remarkable imaging technique that exploits single optical fibres with thousands of light guiding cores to image structures in confined regions of the body with ~ micron level resolution.
  Development of a novel Stimulated Raman Scattering microscopy system
  Prof C Liberale
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

An innovative high-speed broadband Stimulated Raman Scattering system will be designed and implemented in our laboratory, in the framework of a recently awarded grant, in collaboration with the Politecnico di Milano (Italy).
  Low-cost Solid-state Lasers for Commercial Quantum Technology (Advert Reference: RDF20/EE/MPEE/SATHIAN)
  Dr J Sathian
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lasers enable many scientific, industrial and medical applications, but systems requiring high-bright visible excitation for laser action (e.g., Ti:sapphire; Alexandrite; Cr:LiSAF) are challenged by the unavailability or excessive high-cost visible pump lasers.

  Dr R Gupta, Dr G Kettles
Application Deadline: 12 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Wheat is a staple food for about two billion people in the world.
  Ultrafast dynamics of isolated chromophores (BULLJU20SF)
  Dr J Bull
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A motivated and enthusiastic student is sought for a PhD in Physical Chemistry/Chemical Physics that will apply ultrafast lasers to understand excited dynamics in molecules of biological and technological importance.
  Fibrous minerals in the environment – occurrence, longevity and risk to human health.
  Dr D Bullen, Dr A Gibson, Dr M Fowler
Application Deadline: 23 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a fully-funded three year PhD to commence in October 2020. The PhD will be based in the Faculty of Science and Health, and will be supervised by Dr Bullen, Dr Gibson and Dr Fowler.
  Developing new laser-based instruments to characterise optical properties of aerosol particles from road traffic
  Dr K Manfred, Dr D Carslaw
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Road traffic remains among the most significant sources of particulate matter (PM) pollution in the UK. With the decline in tailpipe emissions, non-exhaust sources – including resuspended road dust and tyre and brake friction – of PM are becoming increasingly important.
