We're hiring ! Postdoctoral position in Nonlinear Photonic Crystal Fibers

The postdoctoral researcher will be working on Carbon Nanotube Based Nonlinear Photonic Crystal Fibers within the multidisciplinary project CHARMING coordinated by B-PHOT. A unique opportunity to join our dedicated research team that achieved breakthroughs in the demonstration of PCFs for low-bending loss fibres, large mode area fibre lasers and optical fibre sensors based on fibre Bragg gratings. B-PHOT has built theoretical and experimental expertise on modelling and design of photonic crystal fibres as well as on characterisation and implementation of PCFs for various applications.

Paradigmshift in graphene research published in Nature Communications

B-PHOT researcher professor Nathalie Vermeulen and her team have discovered a very unexpected and far-reaching trait of graphene, a substance that is seen by many as a game-changing material of the future. Graphene is capable of changing the wavelength of light, and their research showed that instead of strong incoming light intensities as typically employed for this purpose, graphene has a better conversion efficiency for low incoming light intensities.

Doctor Benjamin Feigel graduated with highest honors presenting the potential of diamond and graphene for integrated nonlinear optical devices

A long title worthwhile as Benjamin has successfully shown the important opportunities carbon-based materials offer for integrated nonlinear optics during his PhD research. As in electronics, also in photonics the aim is to develop very compact components that are fabricated on a chip.
