Modelling and design of semiconductor laser sources for high-power and ultrafast operations

   Department of Electronic Engineering

About the Project

The project will build on the previous work on both ultrafast and high-power laser sources to model numerally and to design coherent arrays of semiconductor lasers capable of emitting powers in the range of hundreds of milliwatts to watts and above. An emphasis will be on the dynamics of such arrays, and ways of optimising the construction for combining high-power and ultrafast pulse output will be investigated. The resulting constructions may find applications in industry, surgery, measurements, and sensors, and collaboration with industry is envisaged. Good mathematical and programming skills will be required from an applicant, and some knowledge of optoelectronics and semiconductors is desirable.

Entry requirements:
Candidates should have (or expect to obtain) a minimum of a UK upper second class honours degree (2.1) or equivalent in Electronic and Electrical Engineering, Physics, Computer Science, Mathematics, Music Technology or a closely related subject.

How to apply:
Applicants should apply via the University’s online application system at Please read the application guidance first so that you understand the various steps in the application process.

Funding Notes

This is a self-funded project and you will need to have sufficient funds in place (eg from scholarships, personal funds and/or other sources) to cover the tuition fees and living expenses for the duration of the research degree programme.
