RedGreenBlue Lasers (physics): the design, fabrication and characterisation of such sources utilising approaches including nanopillar lasers. growth on mismatched substrates and photonic wire interconnects
Integrated red, green and blue laser modules are need for a large number of important applications and also require a number of developments in laser physics. This project will involve the design, fabrication and characterisation of such sources utilising approaches including nanopillar lasers, growth on mismatched substrates and photonic wire interconnects. The work will be performed in collaboration with a UK company and may result in specific ongoing career opportunities.
The work will be underpinned by a good understanding of optical and semiconductor physics and there will be the opportunity to exploit and develop skills in experimental physics and in semiconductor device fabrication. This background and the materials and device development which forms the core of the programme also has strong relevance to a number of other highly topical areas.
The project will be carried out in the Condensed Matter and Photonics Group, which is equipped with a suite of state-of-the-art laboratories including two class 1000 cleanrooms for device and test structure fabrication. The group has extensive experimental and theoretical expertise and capability including a number of world leading material, device fabrication and characterisation techniques invented in house.
This project is available to students applying for funded PhD studentships and may be altered or withdrawn.
Studentships will be awarded to successful applicants from all applications received. Applicants must satisfy RCUK residency rules for the full studentship.
