PhD Studentship: Deep UV QPM materials

University of Southampton

Qualification Type: PhD
Location: Southampton
Funding for: UK Students, EU Students
Funding amount: £18,000
Hours: Full Time
Placed On: 17th December 2020
Closes: 17th March 2021
 

Supervisory Team:    Prof. Peter G R Smith, Dr Corin Gawith, Dr James Gates, Dr Christopher Holmes

Project description

Based around recently developed micro machining technologies - which have led to breakthroughs in power handling for nonlinear optics - we now wish to extend these approaches to materials for the deep UV spectral region. Using state-of-the-art physical machining you will be creating bespoke, sub-nanometre surface with nanometre precision to create new types of nonlinear materials to create efficient lasers down to

The PhD programme

Our world-leading research centre is a hive of activity with over 200 staff and students working on cutting-edge research to provide innovative solutions for real life problems in manufacturing, communication technology, defence, health care, renewable energy and the environment.

We are looking for the photonics pioneers of the future to join our vibrant research team and work alongside our world-class researchers to make history. Our physics and materials science PhD programme offers a solid start to any career in optics and photonics, whether you are planning to stay in academia or work in industry.

Candidate Requirements:

Applications would be welcome from candidates holding good degrees (1st class, 2:1 honours or MSc) in physics, materials science, mechanical or electronic engineering. Experimental skills are essential. In addition to the standard EPSRC PhD studentship, this position includes an annual allowance to enable attendance at international conferences. This post is open to UK and EU citizens only, due to standard EPSRC eligibility requirements.

If you wish to discuss any details of the project informally, please contact Devin Smith, Optical Engineering and Quantum Photonics Group, Email: d.h.smith@soton.ac.uk,

Entry Requirements

A very good undergraduate degree (at least a UK 2:1 honours degree, or its international equivalent).

Closing date: applications should be received no later than 31 August 2021 for standard admissions, but later applications may be considered depending on the funds remaining in place.

Funding: full tuition plus, for UK students, an enhanced stipend of £18,000 tax-free per annum for up to 3.5 years.
