Novel Glass & Fibre
PhD projects are available in a wide range of areas, and if we can’t think of a new project for you, you soon will after interacting with our group!
All of our students are active members of the local chapter of the Optical Society of America. We also take an interest in promoting science to the public, recently completing a project entitled “Morse to Multiplexing”.

A PhD in Glass and Fibre Fabrication provides a firm background for your research career. After graduation, many of our students take up research positions in industrial laboratories worldwide.
Proposed project for 2008
New Glasses for Optical Fibre Devices
The Novel Glass Group plays a central role in a broad spectrum of ORC activities, providing the next generation of optoelectronic materials, with a particular strength in chalcogenide glasses. Our mission is to explore all aspects of new types of glass for application as optical waveguide devices. It is a large and active group collaborating with many other ORC research groups as well as university and industry worldwide. This strength is reflected in the size of our group, hundreds of publications and the career paths which our students follow after a degree in the area of glass and fibre fabrication.
- Infrared optical fibre based on sulphide glasses for new fibre lasers, medical, aerospace and sensing applications
- Planar optical waveguides and devices in new glass, in particular by new chemical vapour deposition techniques
- Glass microsphere fabrication and application, for radically new integrated optical devices
Please contact Professor Dan Hewak at email@example.com for further information.
