[UK] EPSRC Industrial CASE Studentship: “Next Generation Hybrid X-ray Detector Systems”


The aim of the research work is to develop the next generation imaging systems that can record colour images in the X-ray range of the electromagnetic spectrum taken at high frame rates. The capability to record images in which each image pixel also contains the energy of the photons creates a unique detector that provides new levels of contrast in medical and scientific imaging. This innovative technology requires dedicated image processing hardware that will be implemented in reconfigurable circuits (FPGA). The hybrid detector uses modern silicon circuit stacking technology with through silicon via and bump bonding methods for the creation of 3D interconnects. Within the group we have developed a fast, embedded vision system which combines state of the art embedded processors with large scale reconfigurable hardware. The student will work on many aspects of this project and will receive training in the use of several state of the art electronic design software packages, test systems, and finite element software. The student will be based at Manchester University and will receive training and work with colleagues at FMB Oxford Ltd which are based in Oxford. For tests of the system the student must be prepared to travel to conduct experiments abroad.

Entry Requirements

Candidates should have a degree in Electronics, Computer Engineering or another Engineering/Science subject, and ideally knowledge of digital systems design using Verilog and SystemC.
