PhD Scholarship - Laser Techniques for Conservation in Art and Cultural Heritage

At: 
Macquarie University
Deadline: 
20 May, 2017

New and modified laser processing techniques continue to be researched for a myriad of applications in industrial, art and cultural heritage conservation, and environmental contexts. This project will research laser processing solutions for several identified problems in Australian Indigenous and Pacific cultural heritage conservation and textile cleaning. Pigment de-adhesion is a particularly serious issue for traditional Aboriginal bark paintings. The project will involve collaboration with conservation scientist and conservators in Museums and Art Galleries.

PhD Scholarship - Nonlinear Dynamics of Lasers

At: 
Macquarie University
Deadline: 
20 May, 2017

We are seeking PhD candidates in the research of nonlinear laser systems with complex dynamics. Such systems are of emerging technological relevance in, for example, random number generation, ranging systems including for autonomous vehicles, biophotonics, and secure communications.  We use big data and complexity measure approaches to build understanding of experimental, complex laser systems over large, multi-dimensional parameter spaces. This allows complete knowledge of the diversity of outputs that can be achieved from a single such system, including extreme events.

PhD Scholarship - Macquaire University - Photonics of Spider Silks

At: 
Macquarie University
Deadline: 
20 May, 2017

Opportunities exist for students to research the photonics and optics of spider silks and webs. As a natural, nanocomposite, self-assembled dielectric material; certain spider silks are high optical quality fibres with high birefringence, high dispersion and high optical nonlinearity. They are biocompatible and have potential for use in a variety of sensors. Projects can be different combinations of theoretical simulations, research of micro-optical techniques to measure the optical properties, nanophotonics, micro- and nano-scale microscopy, and photonics applications of silks.

PhD Scholarship - Experimental Quantum Science

At: 
Macquarie University, Sydney, Australia
Deadline: 
20 May, 2017
We are seeking PhD students for our research program in experimental quantum science. Immediately available are PhD scholarships for excellent candidates.
