Project Description

Terahertz waves (0.1 to 10 THz) have a range of useful properties that make them promising for future imaging, communication and radar systems. For example, the relatively unallocated spectrum in the terahertz band provides abundant bandwidth for communications and the propagation characteristics allow for high resolution autonomous vehicle radar in adverse weather conditions.
To realise these promising applications methods of efficiently sampling terahertz waves is required. The focus of this PhD research programme is the development of high performance antenna arrays for terahertz wave detection which can be integrated with the receiver electronics. This research will involve antenna design using electromagnetic simulations, cleanroom fabrication and high frequency antenna characterisation.
The PhD candidate should have completed (or be about to complete) his/her undergraduate degree in Electronic Engineering or Physics (preferably with first class honours or equivalent). The PhD candidate is expected to have a keen interest in electromagnetism and strong computational skills. Details of the project will be agreed upon with the successful candidate to tailor the research to their interests.
The research programme will take place in the Emerging Device Technology (EDT) research group ( in the Department of Electrical, Electronic and System Engineering at the University of Birmingham.
For details of the funding available, advice on applying or any other informal enquiries, please contact Dr Stephen Hanham at . Applications can be submitted at by including the title of the project and the name of the supervisor (Dr Stephen Hanham).
