About the project

Novel crystalline photonic devices offer exciting opportunities for creating efficient lasers and manipulating the properties of light. Pulsed Laser Deposition (PLD) is an extraordinary technique using light to create new materials and devices. 

We seek a talented individual to help us advance the understanding and development of scalable concepts for engineering crystal structures that will be enabling for a new generation of laser systems and advanced Photonics applications.

This project, advanced crystal film engineering, is specifically aimed at developing new functional composites for advanced laser applications. Your role will include designing, growth, characterisation, and utilisation of PLD-grown advanced materials, suiting someone who is experimentally capable and keen to learn practical skills. Opportunities also exist for supporting modelling studies to augment the understanding of the complex PLD dynamics and device applications.
