  3D laser beam shaping
  Dr R Carter, Dr J D Shephard
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Combining 2D beam shaping elements (including refractive and diffractive elements) with bespoke focussing optics to shape a laser beam though the entire focal volume rather than in a single focal plane.
  3D printing of micro-scale graded shape memory components for in-vivo actuated medical devices
  Prof D P Hand
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Micro-robots for medicine require highly controlled actuation at a micro-scale to provide controlled motion, testing of tissue compliance, biopsy, etc, and this is a prospect offered by functionally-graded shape memory alloys (SMAs).
  Additive manufacturing (3D printing) of metals - Industrial CASE PhD Studentship
  Prof A J Moore
Application Deadline: 20 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a fully-funded EPSRC industrial CASE PhD studentship starting in September 2020. It is suitable for well-qualified students who have (or expect to obtain) a first class degree in engineering, physics or other relevant subject.
  Aerial and satellite based quantum communications
  Dr R Donaldson
Application Deadline: 31 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Quantum communications offers a realistic possibility to share encryption keys that are future proof against advances in hacking algorithms and secure against eavesdropping attacks.
  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.
  Compact high energy lasers for deep-tissue microscopy
  Dr R A McCracken
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Deep-tissue multiphoton microscopy has the potential to provide rapid advances in neurology and cancer research, but access to this technology is limited by the high cost of the laser source.
  Designer two-dimensional heterostructures for quantum photonics
  Dr B D Gerardot
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Two-dimensional semiconductors, which can be easily combined to create entirely new materials, offer completely unique opportunities to design the electronic and optical properties of individual particles at the quantum level.
  Doctor of Engineering (Eng D): Process optimisation strategies for multiple COSI techniques
  Prof D Reid, Dr C Clemente, Prof S Marshall
Application Deadline: 30 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

MBDA is expanding its research into Computational Optical Sensing and Imaging (COSI). One area of interest is Structured Imaging using, for example, Ladar (Laser Detecting and Ranging) to map a scene in real-time.
  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.
  Doctor of Engineering (EngD) - Ultrafast laser inscription of components for quantum technologies
  Prof A Kar, Prof D Reid
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Ultrafast Laser Inscription technique exploits the high fields present at the focus of an ultrafast pulse train to modify transparent materials.
