Supervision will be provided in an European setting where specialized and complementary training will be provided at the training sites as well as during network events. Research will focus on innovative solutions for fast, narrow line width, stable phase and wide tuning bandwidth swept sources for optical coherence tomography.

As Marie Curie Early
Stage Researcher you will:

Devise and assemble innovative
optical configurations to achieve the goals and milestones as described in
the research programme

Interact with the supervisors at University
of Kent and at the seconding partners in the ITN;

Attend courses and workshops
