PhD scholarship in Photothermal Management

This PhD project aims to develop a unified tailorable photothermal modulation technology.

The successful applicant to this PhD program will contribute to the aims of the ARC DECRA project with the main supervisor, Dr Keng-Te Lin, to investigate the fundamental mechanisms of high-efficiency photon-phonon conversion at a broad bandwidth with high spectral selectivity and the performance dependence on the design structural parameters.

Approximately $34,841 per annul for 3 years.
