PhD research studentships available

Please get in touch if you are interested in a PhD or MSc by Research in the group. We have two funded PhD studentships available for autumn 2020 start, titled Automation of THz imaging for Medical Diagnosis and An ultrafast shakedown of defects in diamond using intense infrared pulses. A number of other projects are suitable for motivated students looking to complete an MSc or a summer research project.

Congratulations Dr Mosley!

Many congratulations to Connor, who finished his PhD in style on the 11th December. Connor's work on "Enhanced Polarisation Control and Extreme Electric Fields: Advances in Terahertz Spectroscopy Applied to Anisotropic Materials and Magnetic Phase Transistions" has led to a new beamline at WCUS and a new type of terahertz radiation source.

Fantastic work, Connor, and best of luck for your next steps!
