The Fiber Sensors & Supercontinuum Group at DTU Fotonik, Department of Photonics Engineering at the Technical University of Denmark is seeking a highly motivated and talented PhD candidate in the field of ultrafast nonlinear optics using gas-filled hollow-core antiresonant fibers.
This Ph.D. project is entitled “Numerical modelling of ultrafast nonlinear effects in gas-filled hollow-core fibers” and it is part of the project “UVSUPER: Ultra-Violet supercontinuum sources and pulsed lasers for the semiconductor industry” funded by Innovation Fund of Denmark. The main goal of the current project is the demonstration of a stand-alone deep ultraviolet supecontinuum source covering the 200 nm – 1600 nm region using gas-filled hollow-core antiresonant fibers. The project is in collaboration with Denmark’s National Metrology Institute (DFM) and NKT Photonics A/S.
Responsibilities and tasks
The PhD fellow will be part of the project UVSUPER and his/her responsibility will be to numerically support the research activities of the project towards the development of a stand-alone deep ultraviolet supercontinuum source. In particular he/she should be responsible to:
Candidates should have a two-year master's degree (120 ECTS points) or a similar degree with an academic level equivalent to a two-year master's degree.
In particular, candidates are required to have:
At the time of recruitment by the host organization, candidates must be in the first four years (full-time equivalent research experience) of their research careers, and have not been awarded a doctoral degree.
Approval and Enrolment
The scholarship for the PhD degree is subject to academic approval, and the candidate will be enrolled in one of the general degree programmes at DTU. For information about our enrolment requirements and the general planning of the PhD study programme, please see the DTU PhD Guide.
The assessment of the applicants will be made by Associate Professor Christos Markos and Professor Ole Bang
