Our research interests are wide ranging from theoretical studies into quantum physics, semiconductors, material science, and nonlinear physics, to application of photonics in optoelectronics, sensing, and material processing. Our vibrant research community of over 80 research students is well supported by world-class research laboratories and facilities.
Postgraduate Study in Photonics and Quantum Sciences
The Institute of Photonics and Quantum Sciences at Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh carries out a broad range of world-leading research in photonic physics, engineering photonics and quantum sciences.
We have excellent opportunities for postgraduate research study, with over 25 academics offering PhD research opportunities and the Industrial Doctorate Centre in Optics and Photonics Technologies offering EngD degrees in conjunction with industry.
We also co-host the established twelve month Masters course in Photonics and Optoelectronic devices in collaboration with the University of St Andrews.
