About the Project
This PhD project will develop topological optimisation techniques for the terahertz band (0.1 to 10 THz) and apply it towards the design of novel photonic devices for future terahertz communication and sensing systems. This will likely involve performing electromagnetic simulations on high performance computers, cleanroom fabrication and electromagnetic characterisation. The candidate should have completed or be about to complete an undergraduate degree in Electrical Engineering or Physics, preferably with first class honours (or equivalent). The PhD candidate is expected to have a keen interest in electromagnetism and good programming skills. Details of the project will be agreed upon with the successful candidate to tailor the research to their interests.
The research programme will be a collaboration between the Emerging Device Technology (EDT) research group in the Department of Electrical, Electronic and System Engineering and the Metamaterials Research Group in the Department of Physics, both at the University of Birmingham.
