Advanced mechanisms for laser-driven ion acceleration

The interaction of intense, ultra-short laser pulses with matter leads to extreme physical conditions. Matter is ionized instantaneously, and transformed into a plasma, which can support extremely large electric fields arising from local charge separation. Read more

u-Care: Novel femtosecond fibre lasers for deep ultraviolet light generation

This PhD project is focussed on the development of a new class of deep ultraviolet light sources based on novel mode-locked fibre laser architectures and nonlinear optics in gas-filled hollow-core fibres. Read more

u-Care: New routes to the deep ultraviolet

This PhD project is focussed on the exploration and development of new techniques for efficient generation of deep ultraviolet light based on nonlinear optics in gas-filled hollow-core fibres. Read more

u-Care: Development of deep UV light therapies

The germicidal properties of UV light at wavelengths of around 254 nm have long been known. Unfortunately, this wavelength is also mutagenic to mammalian cells, a fact that has prevented its use in medical therapies where the light would come into contact with human tissues. Read more

u-Care: Unravelling the mystery of deep UV light

  Research Group: Centre for Inflammation Research
We are seeking an outstanding physics/chemistry/engineering student with excellent optical laboratory skills to design and develop UV illumination systems for biological assays. Read more

PhD in Engineering - Topological THz Nanophotonics

The advent of 5G telecommunication technology and has put strong foundations and demand for the development of the next generation of wireless communications, namely 6G. Read more

PhD in Engineering - Ultrafast Quantum Nanoelectronics with THz pulses

Quantum technology has been on the spotlight of UK’s research and innovation for the last few years. The ‘holy grail’ of all these efforts is to create the first ‘Quantum Computer’, which unlike our regular, ‘classical’ computers can perform operations exponentially faster and with higher accuracy.

How do RNA-binding proteins control splice site selection? A multi-disciplinary approach.

Almost every protein-coding gene in vertebrates can and does express multiple proteins. This is achieved primarily by RNA splicing, which is an essential step in gene expression in mammals and generates incredible diversity. Read more

Controlling and measuring photon emission from single molecules for renewable energy applications

The University of Bath is inviting applications for the following PhD project commencing in October 2022. The aim of this project is to establish coupled measurement of light emission and atomic manipulation, enhanced with spectroscopic and single-photon correlation capabilities [1]. Read more

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

Highly adaptable photonic quantum interfaces: wavelength and bandwidth conversion

The University of Bath is inviting applications for the following funded PhD project commencing in October 2022. The goal of this PhD project is to develop optical fibre devices to allow increased connectivity and flexibility in quantum information networks of the future. Read more
