PhD Studentship Engineering Material Properties By Ultrafast Laser Writing for Photonics and Information Technology

A new opening PhD position in photonics is available at University of Southampton, UK. The funds for this fellowship are available for 5 years. Potential candidates should apply before August 31, 2020.

High-power ultrafast lasers enable the new technique of direct optical writing for patterning waveguides, micro- and nano-structures in three dimensions, to provide entirely new functionalities in optoelectronics. Three-dimensional photonic structures will allow significant increases in the scale of integration in optical information processing and data storage opening new avenues in the fields of photonics and information technology which includes recent demonstration of 5D data storage.

This project investigates interaction between intense ultra-short light pulses and matter at or below the wavelength scale reaching states of matter found only deep in the cores of the Earth and other planets. A key goal is to exploit these extreme conditions of ultrafast laser writing for synthesising unique material phases with on-demand optical and electronic properties.

This project explores a variety of advanced ultrafast laser material processing techniques, the physics of femtosecond photosensitivity and applications of 3D photonic structures.

This project is supported EU and Microsoft and available for international students.

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 2020 for standard admissions, but later applications may be considered depending on the funds remaining in place.

Funding: full tuition fees for EU/UK students plus for UK students, an enhanced stipend of 15,009 tax-free per annum for up to 3.5 years.

Applications should be made online here selecting "PhD ORC (Full time)" as the programme. Please enter Peter Kazansky under the proposed supervisor.
