Terahertz technology is an important area of research in for applications rand from medical diagnosis to material characterisation. This is electronic engineering to develop the next generation devices and technologies for smart application. The results of this research will have far reaching impacts in developing sensors based autonomous devices and machines like driverless cars and robotics, just couple to name here.
In this PhD research project your main focus will be to develop a room temperature vacuum electron device concept for a broad frequency range up to Terahertz band.
Cranfield Defence and Security (CDS) provide unique educational opportunities to the Defence and security sectors of both public and private sector organisations.
Based at the UK Defence Academy at Shrivenham in Oxfordshire and at Cranfield University in Bedfordshire, CDS is the academic provider to the UK Ministry of Defence for postgraduate education at the Defence Academy, training in engineering, science, acquisition, management and leadership.
As the project develops, we expect intellectual property development leading to patents and high impact publications.
It is expected that all of the results will be published in high impact conferences and peer reviewed journals. This would allow several opportunities to present our work at conferences, workshops and exhibitions. Also there will be some travel would be required to do specialist experiments at other locations in UK.
This PhD program will enable you to develop a new concept in Nano semiconductor devices using the applied physics to deliver a new vacuum electron device for high frequency. This terahertz source device has great potential for a technology breakthrough to boost terahertz electronics as well as your career progression.
