Scientific Member of Staff (f/m/d) - Photonic Integrated Circuits for Quantum Sensors
Published(89 days ago)
Deadline for applications(53 days ago)
Scientific Member of Staff / (m/f/d)
- Photonic Integrated Circuits for Quantum Sensors -
The Joint Lab Quantum Photonic Components at the FBH is seeking a scientific staff member for the development of active, GaAs-based pho-tonic integrated circuits for application to quan-tum sensors.
(Reference number 39/19)
GaAs-based diode lasers constitute the photon-ic backbone of quantum sensors. To allow for miniaturization and scalable production a multi-tude of functional features has to be integrated into the laser chips. To facilitate proper design of these evermore complex GaAs photonic components, FBH develops a multi-physics, multi-scale modelling and simulation environ-ment which is to predict the performance pa-rameters relevant to quantum sensor applica-tions. The environment will be applied to the development of an extended-cavity diode laser, that is fully (monolithically) integrated on the chip.
The research will cover theoretical, software development, and experimental aspects. The theoretical work will address the modelling of steady-state lasers, i.e., the optical, electrical, thermal, and mechanical properties of the de-vice. The software part will cover the develop-ment of the computational environment: existing expert programs will be used to simulate differ-ent physical aspects, and control software will be developed to manage the overall simulation flow and the exchange of data between the expert programs. The experimental work will focus on investigating relevant electro-optical performance parameters of test structures and devices like optical transfer functions, optical spectra, modulation properties or frequency noise spectra. All work will be performed in close cooperation with a second project team member and with relevant specialist teams at the FBH.
Candidates must have completed their doctoral studies in physics, electrical engineering or mathematics. They hold strong expertise in physics modelling and in numerical computation. The position is specifically open to those who focused on theory so far and want to extend their expertise into the experimental realm.
Team working as well as independent working skills and an excellent command of English lan-guage are essential for this position. German language skills are highly desirable.
The position can be filled immediately and is initially limited to two years.
Payment is according to TVöD (collective salary scheme for German public service). FBH is an equal-opportunity employer. Female candidates are encouraged to apply. Among equally quali-fied applicants, preference will be given to handicapped candidates.
