Vortex Beams and Optical Metasurfaces

A PhD studentship is available to EU students starting from October 2019 or as soon as possible thereafter to work on complex vortex beams and optical metasurfaces within the framework of the ERC Advanced grant of Professor Anatoly Zayats. The project involves design, nanofabrication and optical studies of metasurfaces to control complex optical beams for a wide range of linear and nonlinear photonic applications. The project will be an experimental project involving fabrication and optical characterisation of metasurfaces, with applications in light polarisation control. We are looking for candidates with a strong background in optics and hands-on experience in optical laboratories. Knowledge of and experience in one or several of the following fields will be an advantage: optical vortex beams, ultrafast lasers, optical metasurfaces, optical forces, polarisation measurements, near-field optics, nanofabrication and numerical modelling
