Research Fellow in Experimental Nonlinear Photonics

University of Southampton - Zepler Institute for Photonics and Nanoelectronics

Location: Southampton
Salary: £31,406 to £34,304 per annum
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Fixed-Term/Contract
Placed On: 4th November 2021
Closes: 10th December 2021
Job Ref: 1565521PN
 

The project MODES, funded by the European Research Council, invites applications for a postdoctoral position in the field of nonlinear photonics at the University of Southampton, UK.

MODES arises in the framework of the emerging interest for nonlinear multimode processes in optical fibres, and wants to extend it to on-chip optical waveguides, where the study of the multimode dynamics is still on its infancy.  By exploiting the nonlinear interaction between several spatial modes in on-chip waveguides, novel ultra-compact and efficient optical sources will be investigated. These sources will allow light emission in a broad frequency spectrum, and will find application in several fields from medical, to security, to sensors.

The successful candidate will work in the Multimode Photonics Group of Dr. Massimiliano Guasoni (https://www.orc.soton.ac.uk/multimode-photonics-group), and will be mainly involved in laboratory experiments. On-chip optical waveguides will be characterised and tested to implement nonlinear frequency conversion. The successful candidate will receive adequate initial training and will be supported by experienced researchers.  At the same time, they will assist PhD students and will be encouraged to develop their own projects and to apply for funding. They will have access to state-of-the art cleanrooms and will enjoy the collaboration with world-leading academics.

The applicant should have a solid experimental background as well as good knowledge of nonlinear optics and finite-element method software tools (e.g. Comsol Multiphysics). Previous experience in optical waveguide fabrication is an asset. It is expected that they will hold a PhD* or equivalent qualification related to photonics.

The post will be for 1 year in duration, with good prospects for extension up to 2 years depending on performance.

* Applications for Research Fellow positions will be considered from candidates who are working towards or nearing completion of a relevant PhD qualification.  The title of Research Fellow will be applied upon successful completion of the PhD.  Prior to the qualification being awarded the title of Senior Research Assistant will be given.
