Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) - Distributed gamma dosimetry with fibre-optic cables (Cavendish Nuclear and University of Strathclyde)

  Research Group: CDT in Applied Photonics
This project will develop fibre-optic sensors for remote, distributed gamma dosimetry. The aim is to use state-of-the-art approaches in sensor hardware and software development to produce a measurement system which can distinguish between gamma ray energies over a high measurement range. Read more

Optimizing and tuning the optical characteristics of solution processed TADF OLEDs

The position advertised here looks at optimizing and tuning the optical characteristics of solution processed TADF OLEDs. Solution processed organic films are characterized by intrinsic disorder and inhomogeneity on different length scales. Read more

Picophotonics: The Science of Light-Matter Interactions at Sub-atomic Scale

The Project. This project will develop new concepts of optical imaging, metrology and device functionality at the atomic (picometre) scale, leveraging recent advances in topology, the structuring of optical fields, metamaterials, and artificial intelligence. Read more

New Optics Beyond Hertzian Waves: Anapoles and Flying Donuts

The Project. This project will advance optics and electromagnetism in the first radically new direction to emerge since Hertz, Marconi, Popov and Tesla originally developed technology for generating, detecting, and communicating with transverse electromagnetic waves. Read more

Metamaterials and Nano-Machines Driven with Light

The Project. The balance among elastic, electromagnetic and quantum forces changes dramatically at the nanometre scale. This project will explore the remarkable range of functional materials and devices that can be reconfigured with light and electromagnetic forces. Read more

Deep-tissue optical imaging

The CMOS Sensors and Systems Group, of the Institute for Integrated Micro and Nano Systems within the University Of Edinburgh School Of Engineering, invites applications for a PhD position focused on deep-tissue optical imaging, supported by an EPSRC 2050 proposal. Read more

High Efficiency Perovskite Tandem Solar Cells
