The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Ultra Precision Engineering is currently recruiting motivated postgraduate students interested in designing and advancing the ultra-precision manufacturing technologies on strong footings of materials science/surface engineering/nanotechnology.
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.
You will develop new techniques for the ultrafast optical characterisation of semiconductor materials under realistic laser/amplifier operating conditions, generating new knowledge essential for the development of novel ultrafast semiconductor lasers and amplifiers.
Single-Photon and photon-pair correlated imaging has opened up a number of exciting possibilities for three-dimensional imaging in extreme environments such as imaging through obscurants (eg fog, smoke), and underwater.
Design and characterisation of different artificial materials for the design of ultra-fast tuneable photonics devices. Giant epsilon-near-zero nonlinearities are targeted to allow subwavelength manipulation of light in both classic and quantum regime.
