    Self-Funded PhD Students Only

Project Description

Pulse Shape Analysis is an electrical signal processing method which allows the identification of radiation particles or their interaction properties based on the shape of the electric signal produced through the interaction of the radiation with a detection sensor.
The method has multiple applications ranging from fundamental science such as nuclear and particle physics, to industrial and medical applications such as non-destructive analysis or medical and industrial imaging.

Advances in Machine Learning makes possible the development of performant algorithms for Pulse Shape Analysis using pattern recognition methods. This project aims to develop such sophisticated algorithms for silicon-based radiation sensors.

The student working on this project will have the opportunity to develop knowledge and skills related to electrical signal processing, radiation sensors, and machine learning. Such combined abilities will result in a high employability level having the flexibility of applying them to a diverse range of domains.

Applicants should have (or about to obtain) a first or second class UK honours undergraduate or master degree, or a recognised equivalent from an overseas university in a discipline such as electrical or electronics engineering, physics, computer science or engineering, mathematics, statistics, or other related areas. Good background in computer programming or the desire to develop it is essential.

Funding Notes

Brunel offers a number of funding options to research students that help cover the cost of their tuition fees, contribute to living expenses or both. See more information here: View Website. Recently the UK Government made available the Doctoral Student Loans of up to £25,000 for UK and EU students and there is some funding available through the Research Councils. Many of our international students benefit from funding provided by their governments or employers. Brunel alumni enjoy tuition fee discounts of 15%.)
