Position available for Masters study on an exciting project at the Photon Factory

29 October 2015

The Photon Factory is currently seeking two exceptional candidates for Masters study on an exciting project involving spatial and temporal beam shaping for laser micromachining. Supervised by Associate Professor Cather Simpson, the study aims to ultilise advanced spatial light modulator technology for the creation of beam shapes, including vortex beams and non-diffracting Bessel beams for improved laser micromachining. The project will also exploit novel temporal pulse shaping technology developed by industrial collaborators to conduct simultaneous spatial and temporal pulse shaping.

The sucessful candidates will also investigate the effect of this novel pulse shaping routine on the laser micromachining process, which will involve conducting laser micromachining experiments and analysis of machined structures. The project will be carried out in the Photon Factory, a vibrant, diverse and multi-disciplinary environment, which will allow students many opportunities for learning and advancement.

This project is generously supported by the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment, providing funding to cover tuition fees and a stipend for MSc students.

Please contact Associate Professor Cather Simpson for more information.
