EPSRC CDT in Metamaterials/TEAM-A (PhD Studentship): The Development of Novel Electronic and Photonic Metadevices for Adaptive Multispectral Imaging in the Infrared

University of Exeter - Centre of Doctoral Training in Metamaterials (XM2)

Statement of Research

Joint supervisors: Professor C. David Wright, Dr Jacopo Bertolotti

Industry partner: QinetiQ

Multispectral/hyperspectral imaging is a relatively recent development in sensing, enabling the capture of images that contain far more information than is available from standard methods. In essence, every pixel in the scene is captured as a spectrum, which can span from the visible to the far infrared and even out to the THz region. Possible applications include environmental monitoring, robotics, geological surveying, agriculture, industrial process control, defence and security amongst many others. In this project we will pioneer the development of novel kinds of adaptive and re-configurable multispectral/hyperspectral imaging techniques, based on the combination of optical metasurfaces with the switchable, reconfigurable and tuneable properties offered by chalcogenide alloys and 2D TMDCs (transition metal di-chalcogenides). The successful applicant will be part of Exeter’s CDT in Metamaterials and will join a thriving, internationally-leading research group with access to state-of-the-art electronic/photonic materials and device fabrication and testing facilities.

This studentship is part of the Centre of Doctoral Training in Metamaterials. Please see all fully funded opportunities.
