Project title: Intelligent optical sensing
Supervisory Team: Rand Ismaeel, Martynas Beresna, Christopher Holmes
Artificial intelligence is taking an ever-increasing presence in our daily live. Most frequent occurrence is probably related to visual data analysis such as face recognition. Can similar data processing algorithms be used to develop digital sensors that can detect organic substances to understand what role oceans take in global warming? Or monitor performance of an aircraft made of composite materials to reduce CO2 emissions?
In this PhD project, you will combine optical sensing with AI based algorithms to develop next generation sensing systems. The research work will introduce you to modern manufacturing and characterization techniques used in developing optical devices and composite materials, computational modelling of photonic systems. The project has strong commercial potential and we have industrial collaborations with local start-ups and global corporations allowing impact of your research to be seen in real life applications.
A very good undergraduate degree (at least a UK 2:1 honours degree, or its international equivalent).
Closing date: Applications are accepted throughout the year and several start dates throughout the year are possible. Applications for the typical Sept./Oct. 2023 start should be received no later than 31 August 2023.
Funding: For UK students, Tuition Fees and a stipend of £20,000 tax-free per annum for up to 3.5 years.
