EPSRC Industrial CASE award in Optical Communications

PhD post available - Optical Networks Group

Dr Seb Savory has been awarded an Industrial Case Award comprising funding of £63,789 from the EPSRC and an additional £22,500 from Bookham Technology. Applications are currently being invited to fill the PhD post, which offers a generous £18,000 tax free stipend per annum.

The project will include a mix of theoretical and experimental work, and will be based within UCL’s Optical Networks Group (ONG), whose state of the art experimental facilities allow for the investigation of wavelength division multiplexed terabit capacity transmission over transpacific distances (including a 32 wavelength recirculating loop testbed with two 40Gbit/s bit error rate test sets and a 50GSa/s real-time oscilloscope).
