Prof M Fox Applications accepted all year round Funded PhD Project (European/UK Students Only)

About the Project

Semiconductor quantum dots are considered to be one of the best candidates to serve as the quantum emitters in quantum communication and quantum computing technologies. In our research group we have recently developed an extremely fast single-photon source based on quantum dot emitters. Our goal now is to optimize the source, understand the fundamental processes that control the performance of the quantum dots for the most demanding applications, and to extend the wavelength range. The project will involve advanced experimental work using state of the art techniques of nanophotonic spectroscopy.

Science Graduate School:

As a PhD student in one of the science departments at the University of Sheffield, you’ll be part of the Science Graduate School – a community of postgraduate researchers working across biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics and psychology. You’ll get access to training opportunities designed to support your career development by helping you gain professional skills that are essential in all areas of science. You’ll be able to learn how to recognise good research and research behaviour, improve your communication abilities and experience technologies that are used in academia, industry and many related careers.
