  Evolution Inspired Development of Multi-Level Selection Genetic Algorithm for General Applications
  Research Group: Fluid-Structure Interactions
  Dr A Sobey, Dr T Ezard
Application Deadline: 1 April 2019
Genetic algorithms are used in a range of diverse applications including. spacecraft antenna design, AI in computer games, determining which genes cause illness and portfolio selection for financial investments.
  Planar photonics for ion-based quantum information processing
  Research Group: Fibre & Systems Group
  Dr P Horak
Application Deadline: 30 June 2019
The Optoelectronics Research Centre (ORC) at the University of Southampton is looking for a PhD candidate with an interest in quantum technology and a strong background in theory and computational simulation in classical and/or quantum optics to join us on this interdisciplinary project as part of the EPSRC Networked Quantum Information Technology programme (NQIT).
  Computational Catalytic Modelling for the Conversion of CO2 to Higher-Value Synthetic Fuels
  Research Group: Energy Technologies
  Dr L Armstrong, Prof R Raja
Application Deadline: 1 June 2019
This is a multidisciplinary project between the School of Engineering and the School of Chemistry. The studentship is in partnership with SMMI, www.southampton.ac.uk/smmi/.
  New DIC-Based Material Test Standards: Design and Validation
  Research Group: Materials and Surface Engineering
  Prof F Pierron
Application Deadline: 1 March 2019
Within the past ten years, the availability of digital imaging hardware and powerful image processing algorithms has led to the wide diffusion of strain mapping techniques like Digital Image Correlation (DIC).
  Developing 3D printing techniques for the fabrication of integrated optical circuits
  Prof P Smith, Dr C Holmes
Applications accepted all year round
From its inception 3D printing has been applied to a range of fields. Photonics is an emerging field into which additive and subtractive laser manufacture techniques are being applied to enhance manufacturing capability.
  Integrated optical elements for miniaturised atom traps
  Prof P Smith, Dr C Holmes, Dr J Gates
Applications accepted all year round
Working as part of the UK Quantum technology hub in Sensors and Metrology led by Birmingham University, this project aims to build optical components for cold atom chips for miniaturised atom traps.
  Optical Quantum Circuitry: Integrating a fast modulator design with existing quantum light devices in UV-written waveguides on chip
  Prof P Smith, Dr D Smith, Dr J Gates, Dr C Gawith
Applications accepted all year round
Manipulation of quantum states of light is important, but difficult problem, especially on-chip. Active devices are a particularly important problem that can be addressed using technologies present in our group, in collaboration with the ultrafast quantum optics and optical metrology group in Oxford.
  Scalable heralded single-photon sources
  Prof P Smith, Dr D Smith, Dr J Gates, Dr C Gawith
Applications accepted all year round
The single-photon source is the fundamental building block for quantum technologies in photonics, particularly for quantum computing.
  Ultra-precision physical micro-machining of planar optical materials
  Prof P Smith, Dr C Gawith, Dr J Gates
Applications accepted all year round
In conjunction with Loxham Precision Ltd, this project will make use of a suite of state-of-the-art ultra-precision physical micro-machining tools for applications in Quantum technologies, lasers, sensors, MOEMS and telecoms.
  Integrated optical elements for miniaturised atom traps
  Prof P Smith, Dr C Gawith, Dr J Gates, Dr C Holmes
Application Deadline: 30 April 2019
Our team specialises in the development and manufacturing of novel optoelectronic devices for applications in quantum technology, integrated optical sensors and laser optics.
