Semiconductor photonic integration in UV/Blue wavelength band

Project description. Photonic integration is becoming a key solution for the next-generation information technologies. Compared with the existing technologies in the near-infrared wavelength band, UV/blue light integration is emerging as an attractive subdivision in integrated photonics. Read more

Silicon photonics- Monolithic III-V laser on silicon

Project description. Applications are invited for multiple PhD studentships to be undertaken within the silicon photonics group at the University of Southampton. Read more

Energy Resolving Photodetection with Hot Carriers

The School of Photovoltaic & Renewable Energy Engineering (SPREE) within the UNSW Faculty of Engineering has been at the leading edge of global solar cell development for over 30 years, reporting many world record solar cell efficiencies and furthering the development of a range of associated optoelectronic devices.

Terahertz quantum cascade lasers

  Research Group: School of Electronic & Electrical Engineering
The terahertz frequency range sits between the microwave and mid-infrared regions of the electromagnetic spectrum, but has long resisted exploitation owing… Read more

PhD programme in Physics

The PhD involves the completion of an original, scholarly piece of research. The courses available within the PhD programme in physics are in form of lectures, classes, seminars, tutorials, computer labs and others. Read more

Spectroscopy and Modelling of Rare-Earth Ions in Quantum-Information Candidate Materials

Quantum memories based on rare-earth ion dopants are arguably the best available, offering high efficiencies, multi-hour coherence times, and large bandwidth storage of entanglement. Read more

Photonic simulators of quantum mechanics and solid-state physics

Photonic systems offer a highly-controllable platform for the exploration of universal wave phenomena. In this PhD project, you will experimentally and theoretically investigate the use of optical fibre resonators for simulating dynamical wave phenomena at the frontiers of quantum and mechanics and solid-state physics. Read more

Optical tweezers

Optical tweezers use highly focused light to manipulate tiny particles. The Biophotonics laboratory in the physics department is developing optical tweezers for the manipulation of bacteria. Read more
