Novel femtosecond fibre lasers for deep ultraviolet light generation
Primary Supervisor: Prof. John Travers – Heriot-Watt University
This PhD project is focused on the development of a new class of deep ultraviolet light sources based on novel mode-locked fibre laser architectures and nonlinear optics in gas-filled hollow-core fibres. The core aim is to create compact table-top systems that generate bright ultraviolet light, with the long-term goal of using them for industrial and healthcare applications. This project will be primarily experimental with a significant numerical modelling component. You will be deeply involved with the design, construction and optimisation of fibre laser systems and their integration with gas-filled hollow fibres. You will learn skills and experience ranging from CAD design and optomechanical construction to fundamental studies of the nonlinear dynamics of guided waves.
