Project criteria

Projects must be within the field of photonic and electronic systems (i.e. have significant photonics content with emphasis on electronic systems). Purely materials focused projects would not be suitable this programme.

Abstracts must include:

  • clearly defined research objectives,
  • methodology (i.e. what the student will be doing),
  • engineering/scientific novelty of the research,
  • how the project meets the remit of the PES CDT.
