  Fast, reliable and secure wireless IoT chaos-based communication
  Dr M S Baptista
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project tackles scientific issues aimed at creating and laying the mathematical foundations of an innovative Wireless IoT Communication System…
  Application of digital holography for underwater measurements
  Dr T Thevar, Dr S S Aphale
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Underwater digital holography is a powerful technique to study marine organisms and marine pollution (e.g. micro-plastics), marine evolution, etc.
  Laser induced breakdown spectroscopy for subsea applications
  Dr T Thevar, Dr K Nakkeeran
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) is a widely used technique to obtain the elemental constituents of a sample. The process uses a short pulse of focused laser light to evaporate a minute volume of a target substance by highly localized heating to temperatures greater than 5000 K.
  Optical Fibre Lasers
  Dr K Nakkeeran, Dr S S Aphale
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Optical fibre lasers are widely used in many fields. In the recent past lots of research going on in optical fibre lasers for various applications.
  Optical Fibre Sensors
  Dr K Nakkeeran, Dr S S Aphale
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Optical fibre sensors are widely used in many fields. In the recent past lots of research going on in optical fibre sensors related to Fibre Bragg Grating (FBG) and Photonic Crystal Fibres (PCF).
  Marie Sklodowska-Curie Early Stage Researcher (ESR) - Understanding lipid membranes at the nanoscale through nonlinear optical microscopy at membrane-nanoparticle interfaces
  Prof P Borri
Application Deadline: 19 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

**Important note. Interviews will be held on 9-10th Jan 2020 and invited applicants will be required to give a 10 minute presentation detailing your research work relevant to the position**.
  Quantum Optics of Giant Rydberg Excitons in Cuprous Oxide
  Research Group: Condensed Matter and Photonics
  Prof W W Langbein, Dr S Lynch
Application Deadline: 13 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cuprous oxide (Cu2O) is one the oldest, and yet least well-known, semiconductor material. It has a slightly larger band gap than silicon, which means that the single crystal form of the material is slightly transparent in the visible part of the spectrum.
  Improving the sensitivity of gravitational-wave detectors
  Research Group: Gravitational Physics
  Dr K Dooley, Prof H Grote
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Since the start of their first observing runs in fall 2015, Advanced LIGO and Virgo have made direct detections of gravitational waves created by the collisions of black holes and of neutron stars, thus bringing to life a new instrument for astronomy.
  Polarimetric Bistatic Synthetic Aperture Radar Imagery for Complex Scatterers
  Dr D Andre, Dr A Balleri
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Radar techniques have previously been developed for monitoring and surveillance of building interiors, but these are applicable only when in close proximity.
  Defining novel regulators of cancer cell invasion
  Prof M Parsons, Prof J Marshall
Application Deadline: 29 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The cytoskeleton of cells is known to be essential to the behaviour of cancer cells and their ability to invade throughout the body.
  Internal Reflection Infrared Spectroscopy of Multiphase Mixtures
  Prof C Bain
Application Deadline: 31 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project addresses the quantitative analysis of attenuated internal reflection infrared spectra (ATR-IR) of multiphase mixtures, such as emulsions and suspensions.
  Autonomous wireless optical energy harvesting systems for smart homes and indoor applications
  Dr S Mohamed, Dr S Sinanovic, Dr R Ramirez Iniguez
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

SEBE-19-002. Smart homes and buildings are becoming more popular and widely deployed. One main attractive feature in them is their ability to save energy and reduce carbon footprint via energy harvesting and powering devices autonomously.
  Understanding disease mechanisms of Alzheimer’s disease
  Dr X Shu, Dr G Hunter
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project reference number. SHLS19028. Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the most common cause of dementia and is a growing global health concern in the world.
  Using novel technologies to improve visual performance in Age-Related Macular Degeneration
  Dr S Jeon, Dr L Sweeney, Prof N Strang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project reference number. SHLS19029. The prevalence of age related macular degeneration (ARMD) is increasing in the UK; leading to large numbers of older people having difficulty with tasks such as reading and recognising faces.
  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.
