A range of hollow core micro-structured fibres have been developed over the past 10 years with promising and unique optical properties. This project will investigate ways to vastly increase the application of such fibres using novel post processing techniques (such as laser micro-machining) in order to realise a new class of optical devices and components.
All applicants must have or expect to have a 1st class MChem, MPhys, MSci, MEng or equivalent degree by Autumn 2019.
