Devices for terahertz (THz) communications and sensing

   Department of Electronic, Electrical and Systems Engineering

   Applications accepted all year round  Competition Funded PhD Project (Students Worldwide)

About the Project

Terahertz (THz) wave holds great promise for industrial and scientific applications in ultra-high data rate wireless communications and ultra-high resolution sensing. It is a key technology to realise the 6G ambition in a world of ubiquitous wireless intelligence. However, the lack of device and instrumentation technologies significantly holds up the advancement of this area. This PhD project will develop new terahertz passive and active devices for communications and sensing applications. New design method and advanced manufacturing techniques will be applied, and novel devices will be demonstrated. The research will heavily involve high-frequency circuit and electromagnetic design, advanced manufacturing and experimental verification.

The candidate will work with a group of PhD students and postdoc research fellows at the Emerging Device Technology (EDT) Research Lab. Our Lab is well equipped with terahertz measurement equipment (including a 1.1 THz vector network analyser) and micro-fabrication facilities for micromachining, high precision 3D printing as well as laser micro processing. Applications are sought from highly qualified students with first degree in Physics or Electronic Engineering (1st class or equivalent). A Master’s degree in relevant areas may be an advantage.
