Project themes (x 2 studentships): integrated photonics - planar technologies
Applications are now sought from UK students for two DTA studentships which will be in the area of integrated photonics, focussing on planar technologies.
These studentships are a result of the recent successful award to the ORC of a £1.4 million platform grant by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) in the area of integrated photonics, which will lead to the development of new devices including new kW-class lasers, compact on-chip amplifiers, planar sensors and biosensor arrays for infectious diseases.
Applications will focus on versatile and compact lasers for machining and laser-processing applications, pollution sensors to monitor climate change, early threat detection security devices and fast universally accessible disease screening.
Reporting to Professor Rob Eason, Principal Investigator, with co-investigators, Professors James Wilkinson, Dave Shepherd and Peter Smith and Dr Jacob Mackenzie, you will be working on project areas that involve materials fabrication, characterisation and processing, for final device demonstration and project goals that may well involve some of our external industrial and University partners.
For further details contact Professor Rob Eason. Applications may be made in through the PhD application process with an expression of interest in the relevant project(s).
