Scientific Member of Staff (f/m) Efficient, High-Power Diode Lasers
Published(331 days ago)
Deadline for applications(307 days ago)
Ferdinand-Braun-Institut, Leibniz-Institut für Höchstfrequenztechnik (FBH)Berlin
The Ferdinand-Braun-Institut, Leibniz-Institut für Höchstfrequenztechnik (FBH) within the
Forschungsverbund Berlin e.V., is a leading international research institute that studies diode
lasers, LEDs and microwave devices. On the basis of III/V semiconductors, it researches and
implements components and systems for applications in communications, traffic and production
technology, medicine and biotechnology. It covers the entire value chain from design to readyfor-
delivery systems. For more details, visit: www.fbh-berlin.com
The High Power Diode Lasers Lab at the FBH is seeking a
Scientific Member of Staff
- Efficient, High-Power Diode Lasers -
(Reference number 18/18)
to perform research and development into novel high power diode lasers with the highest
GaAs-based diode lasers are the most efficient and highest power light sources today and are
key components for the world's largest (and rapidly growing) laser market, in material processing.
The FBH performs research into the next generation of diode lasers for this market, and these
devices must deliver continually increasing output power and conversion efficiency.
However, at high optical output powers, a complex series of coupled nonlinear effects arises, and
the physical limits to output power and efficiency are not fully understood. These effects must be
understood to an ever deeper level and addressed in detail in order to deliver the needed
performance improvements. Further, diode lasers with the newest designs and technology arising
from these studies must be fabricated to the highest quality and brought into application together
with the FBH's cooperation partners.
The successful candidate will take a leading role in the analysis of high power diode lasers. The
work includes detailed diagnostic studies of diode lasers and their physical and technological
limits. In addition to experimental studies, the work will also include the use of the most modern
The work also includes the supervision of master and doctoral students, the preparation and
supervision of research projects and the presentation of latest results at leading international
research conferences and their publication as scientific articles.
All work will be performed in close cooperation with the relevant specialist teams at the FBH. The
work is highly international and will also involve close cooperation with various partners in
research and industry, including assignments overseas.
Candidates must have completed their doctoral studies in physics or electrical engineering.
Experience with diode lasers, semiconductor technology, or optical resonator is preferred. Diode
laser fabrication involves long process chains and is performed within an international team.
Therefore, good team work skills and an excellent command of English language are essential
for this position.
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
qualified applicants, preference will be given to handicapped candidates.
