About the project
If you’re interested in ultrafast lasers/nonlinear optics or ultrahigh precision measurements, consider a PhD in the area of comb technology using a state-of-the-art comb laser system.
Using recent developments in laser and frequency conversion it has become possible to produce laser sources providing a comb of spectral lines with spectral frequencies accurate to parts in a thousand, million, million. Such combs have revolutionised the accuracy with which time, frequency and distance can be measured and are opening a host of new device and application opportunities.
The Optoelectronics Research Centre is investigating uses of its comb laser system across a range of possible applications including high-frequency waveform synthesis, optical sensing, and metrology. The PhD position will involve working on various ongoing projects that we are running.
