VUB B-PHOT, VUB ETRO & Anteryon BV are offering 4 Ph. D. position within the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network, for the European Industrial Doctorate “xCLASS” project on Next generation Compact Lightsource And Spectrometer Systems.
Four Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) will be hosted across this network and will perform research at VUB B-PHOT, a leading research group in Photonics and Optical Spectroscopy, or at the Electronics and Informatics Department (ETRO) of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, experts in sensor read-out and data processing, and also at Anteryon (ANT), an innovative industrial producer of medium- and high-volume optical components located in Eindhoven (NL).
The ESRs (Early Stage Researchers) have the chance to become leading experts in photonics in academy and industry and to contribute to Europe’s key societal challenges such as health, food safety and a sustainable environment.
For a duration of minimum 36 months, the PhD researchers will investigate, design, model, develop and integrate key photonic components for a low-cost miniaturized optical spectrometer system as part of xCLASS European Industrial Doctorates within the Marie Skolodowska-Curie Innovative Training Networks.

This PhD student will particularly investigate and develop a miniaturized tuneable lightsource.
This PhD student will particularly investigate a modified Fastie-Ebert configuration to develop a compact optical spectrometer combining both refractive and diffractive optical components.
Research will be particularly focused on the integration of the optical, electronical and mechanical components of the miniaturized spectrometer and its interfacing with a tunable light source. Furthermore, data processing algorithms will be investigated.
The overall objective of this research is to reconstruct a wide-band signature using an automated calibration procedure and inverse problem methods to compute higher-quality spectra from imperfect optics.
The start date is 01/03/2018.
