  • Funded PhD Project (European/UK Students Only)
    Funded PhD Project (European/UK Students Only)

Project Description

A funded PhD Studentship (UK/EU only) is available for research into the development of mid-IR semiconductor light sources and their application in a new optical system designed for high-speed imaging of the sub-surface microstructure of additively manufactured polymeric stuructures.

The successful applicant will gain expertise in the art of optoelectronic component design, fabrication and a range of material and device characterisation techniques, as well as optical system design, operation, and integration with advanced manufacturing. They will work within a multi-disciplinary team to design, manufacture, characterise, and use mid-IR light sources in an optical coherence tomography system.

The Studentship will be based within the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering, which is currently host to the EPSRC National Centre for III-V Technologies, a world-class facility for the growth and fabrication of a range of semiconductor materials and devices. In addition, the team has access to an extensive range of optoelectronic characterisation facilities. Furthermore, the student will work alongside colleagues across the Engineering Faculty (Mechanical and Materials), further broadening their skill-set.

Funding Notes

Funding is available for UK and EU students only. Awards for UK students cover tuition fees and a maintenance allowance. EU applicants who have been resident in the UK for at least 3 years immediately preceding the start of their course are eligible for awards that cover tuition fees and provide a maintenance allowance. EU applicants that do not meet this residency criteria are eligible for a fees-only award.
