  2D and 3D Computational Imaging Through Turbulence
  Dr Y Altmann, Prof S McLaughlin, Prof G Buller
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The main objectives of this computational PhD project are to develop new and ground-breaking methods for fast and robust 3D imaging and sensing.
  3D laser beam shaping
  Dr R Carter, Dr J D Shephard
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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).
  Additive Manufacturing of Novel Metal Microwave Components for Space Applications - An EPSRC iCase Project with Renishaw Plc. UK
  Prof J Hong
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

RF/microwave components are essential for telecommunications and radar systems.
  Aerial and satellite based quantum communications
  Dr R Donaldson
Application Deadline: 31 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Quantum communications offers a realistic possibility to share encryption keys that are future proof against advances in hacking algorithms and secure against eavesdropping attacks.
  Astrophotonic technologies for exoplanet hunting
  Prof R Thomson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Photonic technologies facilitate the manipulation of light in ways that are simply not possible using traditional optical technologies e.g.
  Compact high energy lasers for deep-tissue microscopy
  Dr R A McCracken
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Deep-tissue multiphoton microscopy has the potential to provide rapid advances in neurology and cancer research, but access to this technology is limited by the high cost of the laser source.
  Computational Imaging: Improving the Acquisition and Processing of Single-Photon Data
  Dr AH Halimi, Prof S McLaughlin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Designer two-dimensional heterostructures for quantum photonics
  Dr B D Gerardot
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Digital Manufacturing of Wearable Sensors and Soft Robots
  Dr M Amjadi
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Integrated Soft Machines Lab in the Institute of Mechanical, Process and Energy Engineering (IMPEE) at Heriot-Watt University is offering a 3-year fully funded PhD studentship to explore digitally manufactured wearable sensors and soft robots.
