About the Project
QuantIC, the UK National Quantum Technology Hub for Quantum Enhanced Imaging is looking to recruit for a PhD in imaging toxic and dangerous gases using quantum technologies.
Part of the £1 billion UK National Quantum Technologies Programme (NQTP), this is an industry led studentship co-funded by MSquared Lasers and the University of Glasgow. Students will benefit from spending a proportion of their time with MSquared Lasers, developing valuable skills and a range of approaches that are not available in an academic setting alone.
All gases absorb a characteristic set of wavelengths from which their presence can be recognised. Finding these gases may be a simple case of domestic safety or control of greenhouse gas emissions from plant and processing sites. In QuantIC we are working closely with our strategic partners in combining quantum technologies with machine learning techniques to make cameras that can visualise where these gas sources are. These cameras may be hand held or drone mounted to give the greatest coverage of the search area. A student joining this world-leading team will gain expertise in optical design, product development and data analysis. The project includes field work with our collaborating partner.
Places will be awarded on a competitive basis. Applicants must have a 1st class or 2.1 degree at MPhys or MEng level (or equivalent) from a computing, mathematical, physical sciences or engineering programme. Exceptional candidates with BSc or BEng qualifications will also be considered.
