Mid-infrared optical amplifiers for chemical species tomography of aero-engine exhaust plumes
Supervisory Team: Professor Johan Nilsson
University of Southampton is seeking a highly motivated candidate to research, build, and validate fibre-based optical amplifiers for mid-infrared wavelengths and with the power levels, linewidth, stability, and reliability required for chemical species tomography of gas turbine engines such as used for airplanes. LITECS is a £7 million EPSRC-funded project involving six universities and five companies, each contributing world-leading expertise. LITECS targets transformational combustion measurement and modelling tools to enable the development of low emission engine designs and evaluation of new low emission and zero-carbon fuels, leading to reduced environmental impact. As well as aircraft, gas turbines are used to power trains, ships, and electrical generators. See https://www.litecs.uk and https://optics.org/news/11/9/11 for further details about LITECS. The successful candidate will work in the High-power fibre lasers research group in immediate collaboration with other team members as well as with team members in other organizations across the UK.
If you wish to discuss any details of the project informally, please contact Prof Johan Nilsson, High-power fibre lasers Research Group, Email: email@example.com, Tel: +44 (0) 2380 59 3101.
A very good undergraduate degree (at least a UK 2:1 honours degree, or its international equivalent).
Applications should be received no later than 31 August 2023 for standard admissions, but later applications may be considered depending on the funds remaining in place.
Funding: For UK students, Tuition Fees and a stipend of £18,622 tax-free per annum for up to 3.5 years.
