Project Description

Use advanced ultrafast nonlinear optics in gas-filled hollow-core fibres to create unique light sources for fundamental science, healthcare, advanced manufacturing and the semiconductor industry.

Two exciting PhD scholarships for research on the next generation of advanced table-top light sources are available in the LUPO group at Heriot-Watt University. You'll make use of nonlinear optics in gas-filled hollow-core fibres to create unique light sources for fundamental science, healthcare, advanced manufacturing and the semiconductor industry. Topics available include ultrafast light-gas interactions, broadband white-light supercontinuum generation, ultrafast high-power deep-ultraviolet sources, and the design and construction of high-energy few-cycle ultrafast fibre lasers.

These projects span both fundamental physics through to device engineering, and can be tailored to your specific interests and abilities. For more information about LUPO, please see http://lupo-lab.com

Requirements

All applicants must have or expect to have a 1st class MChem, MPhys, MSci, MEng or equivalent degree by Autumn 2020. Selection will be based on academic excellence and research potential, and all short-listed applicants will be interviewed (in person or by Skype). Some of our scholarships are only open to UK/EU applicants who meet UK residency requirements set out by EPSRC.

Closing Date

All applications must be received by 28th February 2020. All successful candidates should usually expect to start in September/October 2020.
