PhD position summary/title: PhD scholarship in Integrated Optical Phased Array on Lithium Niobate for LiDAR – DTU Electro

Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) is a sensing technology based on laser light, holds great promise for allowing autonomous machines to see and navigate the world with very high precision. Typically, LiDAR designs comprise a multitude of moving parts (e.g., an assembly of lasers, optics, electronics, and detectors) on a mechanically rotating stage. The need to assemble and align all these parts leads to high costs and relatively low manufacturing volumes, while the wear and tear on the mechanical components limits long-term reliability, and all these factors have been hindering a wide adoption of this technology. To solve these problems, one of the big trends that industry is witnessing is the drive to higher levels of integration enabled by semiconductor technologies, and the move away from discrete and mechanical components. “LiDAR-on-a-chip” describes a system with lasers, electronics, detectors, and optical beam-steering mechanism all integrated onto semiconductor chips. It significantly reduces the size, weight, and power requirements by integrating all of the key components onto the smallest footprint possible.

PhD position summary/title: PhD position – Co-electrolysis; efficient production of green chemicals – DTU Energy

Electrolysis and power-to-X (P2X) will be key energy technologies in the green transition, as they will be essential for us to replace fossils. The solid oxide electrolysis technology is a key very promising technology because of the high efficiency and hereby lower operational cost. The technology is now being upscaled at a dramatic pace, also at Genvia. While the solid oxide electrolysis technology is the most efficient electrolysis technology, we yet have to explore and understand the different opportunities for the usage of it. 

One of the uses and another advantage of the technology is that it can be used for so-called co-eletrolysis, i.e. convert green CO2 and water steam into a syngas (CO and H2), which can be used to produce various carbon-based green chemicals. This can be done at a very high efficiency and thus have a potential to save the world an enormous amount of energy, given the vast amount of green chemicals needed (e.g. for plastics).

PhD position summary/title: PhD Scholarship in Plasma Physics and Fusion Energy – DTU Physics

We are seeking a candidate to lead the newly constructed linear plasma device PACE (Plasma cavity Experiment) at the Technical University of Denmark. The objective of the device is to assess the non-linear wave physics of electron cyclotron heating waves used for tokamak operation. Recent work from large tokamaks indicates electron cyclotron heating waves may interact non-linearly with the plasma before reaching the heating position. Newly developed models predict that a significant part of the heating wave may be lost due to this effect. The goal of this project is to experimentally validate such models at the PACE device. The PACE device consists of an RF generated plasma with similar properties to an Edge Localized Mode in a tokamak plasma. The device is equipped with external magnetic field coils and antennas to generate and confine the plasma. The specific work of the candidate could consist of optimizing the RF generated plasma, expanding the diagnostic suit of the device, and developing a platform to introduce high power microwaves to validate the theory mentioned above.

PhD position summary/title: PhD student in biotech-focused data science and machine learning – DTU Bioengineering

The enhancement of enzyme catalytic efficiency in varied contexts is vital for both research and industry. This process is influenced by multiple factors, including the choice of reactants, catalysts, solvents, and conditions like temperature, pressure, and pH balance. Traditional single-variable optimization falls short because these factors are interdependent, making multi-variable optimization complex. To address this, computational methods in machine learning (e.g., Bayesian neural networks) offer robust solutions for optimizing experimental conditions. These methods utilize predictive models to estimate performance metrics and their uncertainties for new conditions. Through a balanced approach that includes testing untested conditions and honing in on the most promising ones, these models support iterative testing and learning. This process allows for a targeted exploration of areas with high potential, leading to more efficient optimization. Despite the potential, the scarcity of applied examples and a solid framework for comparing algorithms remain obstacles to the widespread adoption of these computational methods in enzyme reaction optimization. To bridge this gap, this initiative proposes to create a virtual environment for comparing various algorithms and to develop a specialized multi-objective model for optimizing enzyme performance metrics.

PhD position summary/title: PhD scholarship in manufacturing the next generation of electrolysis cells for sustainable hydrogen production – DTU Energy

The removal of fossil fuels is an important ambition, seconded by specific targets in several parts of the world. In this context, shares of electricity production from wind and solar are increasing. The fluctuating and interruptive nature of these sources requires means of storage and “difficult-to-electrify” sectors like shipping and aviation need green fuels. Solid oxide electrolysis (SOE) technologies owing to their high efficiencies can solve this challenge by converting excess electricity into storable compounds such as hydrogen and high energy density transportation fuels. Conventional SOE has reached a matureness allowing for demonstration and field-testing, based on electrolyte- or fuel-electrode configurations.

PhD position summary/title: PhD project in integration of balancing markets in the modelling of sector-coupled energy systems – DTU Wind

In this project, you will develop and apply a method for bidirectional coupling between an expansion planning model and a balancing model used for dimensioning manual (mFRR) and automatic reserves (aFRR and FCR) to handle forecast uncertainties from VRE. Working with other researchers, you will study the impact of increasing VRE forecast errors on European power systems and analyze the optimal technology mix to mitigate the imbalances and provide sufficient reserves. These operational reserves can be obtained from flexible generators and loads (demand response), from neighboring regions, and from other energy sectors, namely, hydrogen, transport, and heat. Current balancing markets rely mainly on dispatchable power generation (e.g., hydro power and gas power plants). However, the expected electrification of other sectors could bring significant additional flexibility sources to the balancing markets, requiring the integration of balancing markets in the modelling of highly sector-coupled energy systems.
