Ultrafast laser inscription

Lead Research Organisation: Heriot-Watt University
Department Name: Sch of Engineering and Physical Science


The student will be working at the Fraunhofer Centre for Applied Photonics in Glasgow. We have a number of laser optics research laboratories and it is where we have the Ultrafast Laser Inscription system that will be a key part of the hardware the student will become familiar with. We also have a high temperature furnace and micro flame brushing system to study localised heat treatment and annealing of samples. The student will join an existing cohort of students within Fraunhofer CAP and will be expected to work with researchers and other students alike where required. Fraunhofer CAP students get exposure to industrial research projects and get to see photonics progress from the laboratory table to field demonstration. There is also a weekly Fraunhofer CAP journal club in which the student would be expected to participate. The student will be given opportunities to follow up their ideas and formulate innovation projects and would be encouraged to also disseminate their research in peer reviewed papers and at conferences.
