Project description

Embark on a transformative journey at the forefront of laser technology with our ground-breaking PhD opportunity, titled “Revolutionizing laser technology through multicore fibre innovation”. In an era where technological boundaries are continually redefined, fibre lasers stand out as the epitome of innovation, offering unparallel advantages with no moving parts or mirrors in the light-generating source.

Project overview:

The primary objective of this project is to redefine the limits of laser technology by pioneering novel fibre lasers grounded in multicore fibre technology. Imagine a single optical fibre housing multiple independent laser channels, unlocking the potential for lasers with multiple outputs or operation at various wavelengths. This venture promises to explore unchartered territories in both continuous wave and ultrashort pulsed operations (fs or ps), opening doors to a myriad of possibilities.

The research will delve into spatial beam shaping approaches, studying and combining several methods to achieve unprecedented results. Moreover, the project aims to investigate coherent beam combination approaches based on multicore technology for high-power laser applications. This endeavour seeks to surpass the current performance limits of single-mode, single-core fibre lasers, presenting significant opportunities for the laser industry to optimize performance for specific light-matter interactions, such as maximizing the efficiency of each pulse in laser-based material processing.

Research Environment:

By joining the Pulsed Fibre Laser Group, comprising of ~15 researchers, at the renowned Optoelectronics Research Centre (ORC), you will be become part of a dynamic community dedicated to advancing the frontiers of laser technology. Your work will be conducted in close collaboration with academic and industrial partners, ensuring a rich and diverse research environment. Together, we aim to demonstrate the vast potential and real-world applications of this innovative laser technology, particularly in laser material processing and medical imaging.

Opportunity Awaits:

Seize this opportunity to be at the forefront of laser innovation, contributing to ground-breaking advancements that have the potential to shape the future of laser technology and its applications. Join us on this extraordinary journey of discovery and impact, where your contributions will play a pivotal role in revolutionizing the field. Don’t miss the chance to be a driving force behind the next wave of laser technology breakthroughs.

Entry Requirements

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. The start date will typically be late September, but other dates are possible.

Funding

For UK students, tuition fees and a stipend at the UKRI rate plus £2,000 ORC enhancement tax-free per annum for up to 3.5 years (totalling around £21,000 for 2024/25, rising annually). EU and Horizon Europe students are eligible for scholarships. CSC students are eligible for fee waivers. Funding for other international applicants is very limited and highly competitive. Overseas students who have secured or are seeking external funding are welcome to apply.
