    Competition Funded PhD Project (European/UK Students Only)

Project Description

The ability to detect single photons underpins a host of emerging quantum technology applications. In this project you will design and develop advanced superconducting nanowire detectors and arrays for infrared photon counting. You will use the state-of-the-art facilities of the James Watt Nanofabrication Centre and Quantum Sensors Group laboratories at the University of Glasgow to develop next generation detectors with extended mid infrared sensitivity. You will deploy devices in advanced photon counting applications in single-photon LIDAR and quantum communications. Our work is closely linked to the UK National Quantum Technology Programme, industry stakeholders and international partners.

This project is suitable for a well-qualified and highly motivated student in with a background in electrical engineering, physics or materials sciences.

Funding Notes

The application deadline for PhD studentships in the James Watt School of Engineering at the University of Glasgow is 31st January 2020.
These studentships are awarded competitively and cover stipend and fees for PhD research for well-qualified UK resident or exceptional EU candidates.
You should send your CV to Professor Hadfield by Monday 27th January.
He will support the best qualified applicant for this project.
