We aim to use Terahertz radiation combined with ultrafast Photonics to push the boundary of what we can see in the microscopic world, sharply beyond what it currently achievable. This goal requires a foundational study and a typical high-risk high-gain research approach, with dense fundamental and applied research outputs and novel intellectual properties of industrial interest.
The project will take place within the facilities of the Emergent Photonics Research Centre of Loughborough University, a 600m^2 infrastructure completely dedicated to Photonic Complexity (https://www.lboro.ac.uk/research/emergent-photonics/ ) and it is funded by The Leverhulme Trust via the project Terahertz four-dimensional microscopy (HYPERSIGHT).
The PhD will engage in the development of the modelling for a multi-dimensional space-time imaging approach targeting the extraction of spectral information in subwavelength volumes (i.e. an hyperspectral micro-tomography). They will gain a considerable spectrum of transversal skills and join a vibrant research team at the Emergent Photonics Research Centre, with exposure to a diversified set of experimental endeavours and to a vast research collaboration network.
The studentship is funded by The Leverhulme Trust via the project Terahertz four-dimensional microscopy (HYPERSIGHT). The studentship is for 3.5 years and provides a tax-free stipend of £18,662 per annum plus tuition fees for the duration of the studentship. International and UK applicants are eligible to receive a full award.
