NEW PhD Opportunity: Oct 2019 – A Manufacturing Process Simulator for VCSELs



An exciting new PhD opportunity has become available via an EPSRC Industrial CASE 2019 studentship with project partners Cardiff University and IQE plc. Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Lasers are required for a large number of applications due to low energy usage, superior beam quality and the potential for very large volume manufacturing. This project will  develop the manufacturing process for VCSELs via simulation predictions.

This project is funded by the EPSRC Industrial CASE 2018 PhD studentship award, administered via project partners Cardiff University and IQE plc.


Full awards (tuition fees plus maintenance stipend) are open to UK Nationals and EU students who can satisfy UK residency requirements.



We reserve the right to close applications should sufficient applications be received.


Candidates are encouraged to contact us with informal enquiries.
