Miniature femtosecond laser frequency combs for astrophotonics and quantum metrology

  • Full or part time
    Prof D Reid
  • Application Deadline
    Thursday, December 05, 2019
  • Funded PhD Project (European/UK Students Only)
    Funded PhD Project (European/UK Students Only)

Project Description

This project concerns the development and application of Yb-based femtosecond lasers operating at pulse repetition rates in the few-GHz range, and their stabilisation as full “frequency combs” using novel nonlinear supercontinuum devices. Applications will be developed in tandem with our partners at NPL (quantum timekeeping) and in collaboration with the astronomy community (astrocombs for spectrograph calibration).

Interested candidates are encouraged to contact Prof. Reid by email to discuss the project in greater detail.
The Institute of Photonics and Quantum Sciences (IPAQS) carries out broad range of world-leading research in photonic physics, engineering photonics and quantum sciences.

Funding Notes

The annual stipend will be £15k and full fees will be paid for 3.5 years.
