About This PhD Project

Project Description

Nanophotonics, metamaterials, 2D materials, semiconductors, imaging filters

Domestic candidates only

Plasmonics, polaritonics and their combination enable the manipulation of light at the nanoscale, at size scales much smaller than the diffraction limit. Such strong confinement is not available for photons in conventional optical systems, and thus represents a “holy grail” for applications from integrated optical technologies for high resolution imaging to chemical-selective sensing for medicine and biology.

You will be part of an international research team enabling the manipulation of light in a microchip devising novel metamaterials systems.

UTS is ranked within the top 200 university globally and is top among the Australian universities under 50 years old. This work will be based at the Faculty of Engineering and IT, in the UTS central Broadway campus. This project is supported by, and in collaboration with the Defence Science and Technology Group, hence Australian citizenship is preferred.


MSc by Research in Physics, Nanotechnology, Materials Science or analogous field
Australian citizenship preferred. Australian permanent residents may also be considered.
Candidates with proven knowledge and skills in at least a few of the areas below are preferred:

Optics and nanophotonics
Thin –film fabrication
Finite Elements Modelling and /or Finite Difference Modelling
Good- quality publications
Excellent communication skills
Works well in a team
Female applicants as well as individuals from underrepresented groups are highly encouraged to apply. For further inquiries please contact Professor Francesca Iacopi,

Interested applicants should email an EOI to Prof.Francesca Iacopi with the following information:

- A cover letter addressing:
- Your suitability for the project
