Machine learning for extreme scale computational imaging in radio astronomy

The Biomedical and Astronomical Signal Processing (BASP) laboratory at Heriot-Watt University Edinburgh (HWU), headed by Professor Yves Wiaux is recruiting a PhD student for research on deep learning for extreme-scale computational imaging in radio astronomy. Read more

Reconfigurable tensorial impedance surfaces for modulating RF scattering and antenna function (enhanced stipend) Ref: 5053

Project Description. It is the focus of this project to design, model, fabricate and characterise active 2D metasurfaces that demonstrate a reconfigurable tensorial surface impedance [1-3] to enable temporal modulation of the amplitude, frequency, phase, directionality, or polarisation state of RF/mm-wave radiation. Read more

Magnetoelectric material based miniaturized and multifunctional antennas (enhanced stipend) Ref: 5052

Project Description. The main hurdle in advancing antenna technology is the issue of miniaturization. Traditional antenna’s function based on electromagnetic (EM) wave resonance and their size is typically larger than one tenth of the EM wavelength, λo. Read more

The Largest Survey of the Hard X-ray Sky - Ever!

Supervisory Team: Tony Bird. Project description. When viewed through hard X-ray instruments, the sky gives an ever-changing view of the most energetic and explosive processes in the universe. Read more

Exploring the Time-Dependence of Kinetic Structure at Earth’s Bow Shock

Supervisory Team:  Imogen Gingell. Project description. When the solar wind interacts with Earth’s magnetosphere, it is heated and slowed from supersonic to subsonic speeds at the bow shock. Read more

Made-to-Measure modelling of the Milky Way

The European Space Agency’s Gaia mission to map the position and motion of nearly 1.8 billion stars has revolutionized our view of the Milky Way. But, 1.8 billion stars is still only 1% of the stars in our Galaxy, and a large part of the Milky Way remains unseen. Read more

Nuclear structure for the astrophysical r-process

The rapid neutron-capture (r) process produces about half of the nuclei heavier than iron. How this happens in exploding stars is one of the great open questions in physics. Read more
