Showing 1 to 10 of 60
  3D laser beam shaping
  Dr R Carter
Application Deadline: 8 February 2019
Combining 2D beam shaping elements (including refractive and diffractive elements) with bespoke focussing optics to shape a laser beam though the entire focal volume rather than in a single focal plane.
  3D printing of micro-scale graded shape memory components for in-vivo actuated medical devices
  Prof D P Hand
Application Deadline: 8 February 2019
Micro-robots for medicine require highly controlled actuation at a micro-scale to provide controlled motion, testing of tissue compliance, biopsy, etc, and this is a prospect offered by functionally-graded shape memory alloys (SMAs).
  Advanced computational methods for improved cancer monitoring and personalised treatment
  Prof S McLaughlin
Application Deadline: 8 February 2019
This project consists of investigating advanced image processing methods (2D/3D segmentation, image restoration, object detection…) to extract information about tumours and surrounding tissues in order to complement information provided by local measurements (e.g., pH/O2 readings, biopsis…).
  An Engineering Doctorate (EngD) in Photonics for atomic quantum technology (NPL)
  Prof D Reid
Applications accepted all year round
Project not available for non UK/EU applicants. The EngD is an alternative to a traditional PhD aimed at students wanting a career in industry.
  Approximate Bayesian methods for scalable inference
  Dr Y Altmann
Application Deadline: 8 February 2019
This project consists of investigating new approximate Bayesian methods for fast and robust estimation in high dimensional problem.
  Assessment of nanomaterial toxicity using alternative, non-rodent models
  Dr H Johnston
Application Deadline: 8 February 2019
The PhD will employ complex 3D in vitro or zebrafish embryo models to assess the toxicity of nanomaterials of varied physico-chemical properties to investigate impacts on the lung, immune system or intestine.
  Computational Imaging: Improving the Acquisition and Processing of Single-Photon Data
  Dr AH Halimi, Prof S McLaughlin
Applications accepted all year round
Recent technological innovations, eg detection and acquisition hardware, have pushed sparse-photon imaging to the fore in a variety of applications including 3D Lidar imaging and microscopy.
  Computational Modelling of Transition Metal-Main Group (TM-MG) Heterobimetallic Complexes for Small Molecule Activation and Catalysis
  Prof S A Macgregor
Application Deadline: 8 February 2019
Longer Project description (optional). This project will use computational chemistry to explore the potential of novel heterobimetallic Transition Metal-Main Group (TM-MG) systems in catalysis.
  Designer two-dimensional heterostructures for quantum photonics
  Dr B D Gerardot
Application Deadline: 8 February 2019
Two-dimensional semiconductors, which can be easily combined to create entirely new materials, offer completely unique opportunities to design the electronic and optical properties of individual particles at the quantum level.
