Photonic Sensors for Measuring Green House Gas Emissions in Dairy and Arable Production: Sustainable Precision Agriculture
University: University of Strathclyde
Supervisor: Professor Craig Michie/ Dr M Lengden
Project Description The global population is predicted to reach 9 Billion by 2050. As a consequence, increasing competition for land resource against a backdrop of climate change agricultural practices are presenting farmers with a range of challenges to improve operational efficiency and reduce greenhouse emissions. In Europe, agriculture contributes approximately...
Project Description The EngD student will be based at the West of Scotland PET Centre. This is one of the busiest PET Centres in the UK with on site cyclotron (GE PET Trace 6), associated laboratories and 2 clinical PETCT scanners. Whilst the centre currently houses a GE Discovery 690...
Project Description Visual Question Answering (VQA)  is the task of answering free-text questions about the content of images. For example, given an image of a room - ‘What colour is the chair standing in the corner?’ - answering this question requires joint understanding of vision, language, spatial reasoning, and...
Supervisor: Professor Steve Marshall / Dr Paul Murray
Project Description Laser-based spectroscopic techniques - encompassing LIBS, Raman and deep-infrared absorption spectroscopy – offer unprecedented performance for molecular and elemental diagnostics. They are however highly directional – dictated by the spatial properties of the probing laser beam. This is highly beneficial when one is interested in ascertaining the nature...
Project Description The market for high contrast diffractive gratings is growing rapidly as active sensing of 3D scenes becomes a dominant feature in modern consumer electronics. Advances in lithographic techniques and development of optical specific processes in ST semiconductor foundries has opened the door for high volume mass production of...
Development of Optoelectronic Sensor Systems to Support Materials Life Assessment
University: Heriot-Watt University
Supervisor: William MacPherson
Project Description This project looks to draw on the expertise within the CDT in Applied Photonics to support the development of novel technologies to support AWE in its mission to support and maintain the UK’s nuclear deterrent. In scenarios where electrical based measurements introduce an unacceptable safety risk, optical-based sensor...
Optical Communication and Image Processing for Space Applications (OCIPSA)
Company: STAR-Dundee Ltd
University: University of Dundee
Supervisor: Keith Wilcox
Project: STAR-Dundee designs signal and image processing systems and data communications networks for use on-board spacecraft. STAR-Dundee played a leading role in the research and development of the SpaceWire spacecraft on-board network technology, which is now being used on more than 100 spacecraft. It is currently working on the next...
Process optimisation strategies for multiple COSI techniques
Company: MBDA UK
University: University of Strathclyde
Supervisor: Carmine Clemente
Project Description MBDA is expanding its research into Computational Optical Sensing and Imaging (COSI). One area of interest is Structured Imaging using, for example, Ladar (Laser Detecting and Ranging) to map a scene in real-time. The image of the scene is formed from thousands of pulses, with each pulse being...
