List of PhD projects available to new students

Funded PhD studentships

The applications are invited from exceptional candidates to work on the EPSRC funded research programme Reactive Plasmonics: Optical control of electronic processes at Interfaces for nanoscale physics, chemistry and metrology. Two studentships are available for 3.5 years and cover tuition fees and stipend. The funding is available for the applicants with UK citizenship or those who studied in the UK at least 3 years immediately prior to applying. The experimental research projects involve fabrication and optical characterisation of advanced plasmonic nanostructures and their applications in opto-electronics and nanophotonics. In addition to exciting science, the project will require travelling to collaborating laboratories at Imperial College London and interactions with industrial partners.

PhD projects for self-funded applicants

The projects listed below are offered without studentships on the understanding that a successful applicant will secure funding to cover tuition fees and living costs from external sources by himself. Additionally, each year the College offers limited number of studentships for home and international students, please check the deadlines (usually February each year) and apply for funding directly [here] .

Active plasmonics

The PhD project involves fabrication and optical characterisation of advanced plasmonic nanostructures for integrated nanophotonics or sensing applications. .

Nonlinear plasmonic metamateraials

The PhD project involves fabrication of plasmonic nanostructures and their optical characterization using ultrafast optical spectroscopy for telecom and nanophotonic applications.
