The Project

The balance among elastic, electromagnetic and quantum forces changes dramatically at the nanometre scale. This project will explore the remarkable range of new opportunities this presents for engineering functional materials that can be mechanically reconfigured at the sub-wavelength scale to control optical properties on demand’ and to realize, for example, low-power nonlinear optical telecom devices, sensors and even lasers.

Our Research Group

You will join a diverse multinational team of students, postdoctoral and academic staff working together on aspects of cutting-edge nanophotonics research seeking to control light and light-matter interactions at the sub-wavelength scale.

A remarkable range of new phenomena is found in this regime, with wide-ranging potential applications in, for example, telecommunications, metrology, sensing, defence, super-resolution imaging, and data storage.

Our work is supported by major nanophotonics research grants from the EPSRC (£5.6M) and the European Research Council (€2.6M).

You will have opportunity to develop advanced skills in experimental photonics, computational electromagnetic modelling, application of machine learning and artificial intelligence, electron and optical microscopy, and nanofabrication.

It is expected that students will publish papers in leading academic journals and present their work at international conferences as their research progresses.
