1-2 postdoctoral positions in microcomb technology and applications
We are seeking a postdoctoral fellow who will be part of a project with the overall aim to investigate the potential of a new class of coherent micro resonator frequency combs, namely dark optical solitons (or dark pulse Kerr combs), in advanced optical communication systems. The postdoc should have expertise in fiber-optic communications and ultrafast photonics to work on either fiber-optic transmission experiments or microcomb technology. The project is funded by the European Research Council.
Information about the research and the division
An optical frequency comb is a laser source whose spectrum is made of evenly spaced and narrow frequency lines that maintain broadband phase coherence across the bandwidth. Micro resonator frequency combs (microcombs) constitute an alternative platform to femtosecond mode-locked lasers for realizing frequency combs on a chip scale. Their compactness, compatibility with standard semiconductor fabrication techniques and large (> 10 GHz) line spacing enable new opportunities in frequency synthesis and metrology: from advanced communications to radio-frequency photonics.
The Photonics laboratory at the Microtechnology and Nanoscience Department (MC2) is a dynamic and creative group with about 30 members working in an international and collaborative atmosphere. We perform both curiosity-driven and applied-research in the areas of optoelectronics, nano photonics, and fiber optic systems. We enjoy a state-of-the-art laboratory for ultrafast optical science and have access to in-house cleanroom facilities to manufacture our own nanophotonic structures.
As postdoctoral fellow, your main responsibilities are to lead and conduct research, and guide junior PhD students. You will have the freedom to contribute with your ideas and collaborate with other senior researchers and professors.
The postdoctoral position is a full-time employment position, limited to 2 years (1+1). We offer a competitive salary, excellent working conditions and access to world-class facilities and infrastructure. Starting date is negotiable.
You should have a PhD degree (or equivalent) in Applied Physics, Engineering Physics, Electrical Engineering or similar; the degree should generally not be older than three years. You must have experience with supervision of junior students (PhD or Master). You must have solid experience with fiber-optic coherent communication experiments or laser frequency combs.
Knowledge of standard finite element solvers and computational techniques in nonlinear optics (generalized nonlinear Schrödinger equation, Lugiato-Lefever equation, etc.) is a plus.
