Doctor of Engineering (EngD) - Optical communications in challenging environments (Fraunhofer and University of Strathclyde)

  Research Group: CDT in Applied Photonics
Visible light communication is an emerging field that is likely to form a key strand of the next generations of communications protocols offering increased bandwidth compared to radio frequency (RF) comms, license-free operation, and, in some situations, increased security. Read more

Doctor of Engineering (EngD) - Next generation long range laser rangefinders based on single photon detectors and new laser technologies (Thales and Heriot-Watt University)

  Research Group: CDT in Applied Photonics
Laser Rangefinders are a key element of modern sensor systems and can range up to 20km with an accuracy of less than 1m. Thales UK produced the first in-service laser rangefinder in 1965, just a few years after the invention of the laser, and have been designing and manufacturing laser systems ever since. Read more

Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) - Sample-adaptive smart microscopy (Cairn Research and University of Glasgow)

  Research Group: CDT in Applied Photonics
3D timelapse microscope imaging of biological samples is revolutionising biology, unlocking the ability to directly witness events such as cell-cell interactions whose location in time and space cannot be predicted in advance. Read more

Doctor of Philosophy (PhD): Using surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy to improve the delivery of radiotherapy in 3D tumour models

  Research Group: CDT in Applied Photonics
Radiotherapy is the most commonly used, and most effective, non-surgical treatment for cancer. However, not all tumors are equally susceptible to radiotherapy e.g. Read more

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

Next generation components for quantum communications (EPS2022/18)

The Single‑Photon Group at Heriot‑Watt University offer a four year fully funded PhD position examining aspects of quantum communications, including quantum amplifiers and quantum random number generators. Read more

Underwater single-photon depth imaging (EPS2022/12)

This PhD project aims to investigate novel single‑photon detector arrays for underwater single‑photon depth imaging. The successful candidate will investigate different single-photon technologies to obtain three-dimensional images in several underwater environments. Read more
