PhD stipends are allocated to individuals who hold a Masters degree. PhD stipends are normally for a period of 3 years. It is a prerequisite for allocation of the stipend that the candidate will be enrolled as a PhD student at the Doctoral School of the Faculty of Engineering and Science, in accordance with the regulations of Ministerial Order No. 18 of January 14, 2008 on the PhD Programme at the Universities. According to the Ministerial Order, the progress of the PhD student shall be assessed every six months. It is a prerequisite for continuation of salary payment that the previous progress is approved at the time of the evaluation.
Scholarship Open for International Students: No
At the Faculty of Engineering and Science, Department of Physics and Nanotechnology a PhD stipend is available within the general study programme Mathematics and Physics. The stipend is open for appointment from October 1, 2011. The stipend is connected to a research project “Active Nano Plasmonics” that seeks to develop plasmonic circuits with integrated active elements such as light sources, modulators and sensors. The project will be carried out in close collaboration with groups at University of Southern Denmark. The goal of the research project is to develop efficient light sources that couple light to propagating surface Plasmon modes in different metallic structures. Light sources such as organic and inorganic nanowires radiating light through second harmonic or two photon luminescence processes will be investigated. Techniques that allow investigations of single nanowires and their coupling to Plasmon modes will be developed. State of the art equipments for nonlinear spectroscopy and synthesis of structures are available concerning the scientific aspects of the stipend.
