High-resolution, high-speed imaging technology is very powerfull tool for scientific research and biomedical applications. The project will study to apply our unique time-domain spectral-phase encoding/decoding technique in real-time imaging systems for biomedical, scientific research, and manufacturing applications. The project requires both theoretical and experimental investigations. The student has the opportunity to collaborate with researchers from universities and industry in China. We will consider student with good undergraduate Physics or Electronic Engineering backgrounds, or related disciplines. Studentship is available for UK and EU citizens. The studentship will cover all tuition fees and offer an enhanced stipend for a full four years. Self-funded students from other countries are also welcome to apply. Heriot-Watt’s Institute of Photonics and Quantum Sciences is a thriving environment for PhD research, having a total of 160 academics, postdocs, PhD and EngD students working full-time in the general photonics field. Heriot-Watt is based in a modern environment on the outskirts of Edinburgh, with excellent transport links to the centre of one of Europe’s most exciting cities. Heriot-Watt was recently awarded (November 2013) an EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Applied Photonics, cementing Heriot-Watt’s reputation as a centre of excellence in photonics, and providing PhD students with an even more attractive environment for study, as well as enhanced training opportunities. IPaQS is one of the main partners in the Scottish Universities Physics Alliance (SUPA) whose Graduate School provides added value to PhD student education in Scottish Physics Departments, principally in terms of inter-University video-linked taught courses and transferable skills tuition.
