About the Project

Flat optics has provided new opportunities for the development of ultrathin devices with unusual functionalities, which are ideal for device miniaturization and system integration. This project will concentrate on the simultaneous control of phase and polarisation at subwavelength scales and develop novel devices for new applications (e.g., quantum entanglement, optical tweezers).

The candidate should be qualified to at least first degree level (above 70%) with a first class honors degree (high 2:1) in one of the following disciplines: physics, physical engineering, electrical engineering or equivalent. A background in optics or nano-photonics will be a plus. Previous experience in lithography, clean room hand experience, FIB and electron microscopy characterisation experience is advantageous, although full training will be provided. Selection will be based on academic excellence and research potential, and all short-listed applicants will be interviewed (in person or by Skype). These studentships are only open to UK/EU applicants. These Studentships are only available for students who meet residency requirements set out by EPSRC.
Requirements
All applicants must have or expect to have a 1st class MChem, MPhys, MSci, MEng or equivalent degree by Autumn 2020. Selection will be based on academic excellence and research potential, and all short-listed applicants will be interviewed (in person or by Skype). This scholarship is only open to UK/EU applicants who meet UK residency requirements set out by EPSRC.
Closing Date
All applications must be received by 28th February 2020. All successful candidates should usually expect to start in September/October 2020.
