Industry partnered PhD Scholarships in applied optics

Two PhD scholarships are available for the right candidates, working on Industry-Partnered PhD projects at the University of Technology, Sydney. The projects involve the design, numerical modelling, fabrication and experimental characterisation of structured materials with on-demand optical properties (metamaterials) to solve outstanding industry problems in telecommunication (project A in partnership with Finisar) and human vision (project B in partnership with Cylite).

UTS has an exceptional team of optical physicists, with expertise in optical theory, numerical modelling, nanofabrication and experimental characterisation. The projects will support collaborative work with external partners at the frontier of metamaterial fabrication.

Finisar is a global technology leader in optical communications. Their products enable high-speed voice, video and data communications for networking, storage, and wireless applications. For more than 25 years, they have created critical breakthroughs in optical technology.

Cylite is a medical technology manufacturer aiming to revolutionise wavefront measurement and manipulation for human vision and related applications.
