PhD position Computational studies of nanostructured photonic metamaterials at the University of Southampton, Centre for Nanostructured Photonic Metamaterials
Qualification type: PhD
Funding for: UK Students, EU Students
Funding amount: The funding covers EU/UK fees and stipend in line with EPSRC rates
Deadline : 11th May 2016
- The project concerns computational and theoretical studies of electromagnetic properties of metamaterials.
- When circuit resonators in metamaterial arrays interact strongly, the response of a collection of resonators can become fundamentally different from that of an isolated resonator-light waves can even become localized inside the sample.
- We investigate these strong collective interactions between the nano-emitters, the effects of disorder, preparation of a gain medium for laser applications and possibilities for using superconducting circuits to create highly nonlinear systems.
The work will be in a close collaboration with experimentalists. The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council UK (EPSRC) has awarded the University of Southampton £6.3M to establish the Centre for Nanostructured Photonic Metamaterials.
