About the Project

The rolling out of the Internet of Things (IoT) which seeks to connect and integrate billions of devices together, and the increasing need for artificial intelligent systems, continually demand more bandwidth and higher speed signal processing.

Direct signal processing in the optical domain has the potential to realise orders of magnitude increase in instantaneous bandwidth, and a very high sampling frequency ability (over THz in comparison to around GHz with electronic technology), which lead to diverse applications for tackling problems of processing wideband signals, and for high-throughput sensing.

This project focuses on light weight, small size and low power consumption integrated photonic circuits for signal processing and sensing, which has applications in environmental monitoring, broadband communications, datacentres, healthcare and quantum information processing.

This PhD scholarship is being offered by Professor Xiaoke Yi from the School of Electrical and Information Engineering at the University of Sydney.

Professor Yi is the Director of the university’s Photonics Research Group and a member of the University of Sydney Nano Institute.

Her research into nanophotonics and integrated microwave photonics promises to lead to breakthroughs that will meet our ever-increasing demand for information and communication systems that can process high-frequency and wideband signals at lightning speed.

This is a fully funded scholarship for 3.5 years covering tuition fees and a stipend for living expenses.

To apply, please submit a short CV (one page) and academic transcripts to Xiaoke Yi – [Email Address Removed]
