Faculty of Physics University of Warsaw in the framework of NSC-Opus 14 project:Superresolution hidden in the far-field and spatial-spectral transformations


two 24-month PhD student grants


Project description

The project aims at the development of methods for superresolved imaging of nanostructures with the use of hyperbolic metamaterials and compressive imaging in the far field. The main research activities will be focused on development of new photonic nanostructures and algorithms for compressive microscopy with an indirect measurement in the far field as well as of experimental systems including the imaging spectrometer and the microscopic setup.


  • recruitement follows the rules for awarding scholarships set out in the Regulations for the awarding of scholarships in research projects financed from the resources of the National Science Center (annex to the resolution of the NCN Council 96/2016 of 27 October 2016)


  • at the time of the begining of the grant, the candidate has to be subscribed to PhD studies in physics, or may be preparing a master thesis in physics,  nanostructure engineering or in a similar discipline with a short perspective to subscribe to PhD studies in physics
  • good background on optics, and good knowledge of programming are required,
  • well seen previous work on either electromagnetic modeling, or compressive sensing, or optical measurement techniques

Key responsibilities

  • development and testing of compressive sensing and similar algorithms used in the experiment
