  PhD Studentship – Synthesis of new Chromophors to use in Optoelectronic applications
  Dr R Rios Torres
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Gas sensing plays a key role in enabling many different technologies used to monitor the emissions from different sources. Photonic gas sensors exhibit unique advantages of building a CMOS-compatible, cost-effective, and portable sensing system fully integrated on a single chip.
  Fundamental Optical Physics in Metamaterials
  Prof K MacDonald, Dr JY Ou, Prof N Zheludev
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In this project, we explore electromagnetic phenomena that are fundamentally forbidden or imperceptibly weak in conventional materials, which are however permitted and can be strong in nanostructured matter.
  Metamaterials & Optical Fibres
  Dr E Plum, Prof K MacDonald
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In this project we will explore conceptually new applications of metamaterials to optical signal processing in fibre networks and advanced fibre lasers.
  Unconventional Light Waves and Anapoles
  Dr N Papasimakis, Dr V Savinov, Prof N Zheludev
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In this project we will apply nanophotonic tricks to the generation of topologically complex electromagnetic fields, which can reveal hidden (otherwise undetectable) excitations in matter.
  Hybrid Nano-Electro-Mechanical Systems
  Dr VA Fedotov, Prof M Kaczmarek
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In this project we will hybridize nano-electro-mechanical systems (NEMS) with liquid crystals to create smart, dynamically adaptable (field-programmable) optical materials and sensors.
