Post-doctoral vacancies in photonics

  • Post-doctoral position in Photonics: Multi-color lasers implemented on generic Photonic ICs

    Lasers with the capability to emit simultaneously at multiple wavelength, i.e. multi-color lasers, open exciting perspectives for a wide range of applications, from optical sensing to data-communication or mm-wave and THz all-optical processing. Combined with the outstanding and continuous progress of generic foundry platforms making Photonic Integrated Circuits widely available, it is now possible to design multi-color lasers specifically tailored for various applications. The main bottleneck of this development is the difficulty to finely control multi-color lasers. In short, depending on the internal mechanism, these lasers can either be versatile but extremely sensitive, or robust but without any practical control parameter. Yet, we recently proposed a new technique based on phase-controlled optical feedback which showed great promises. We were able to induce complete wavelength switch in two-colour laser with a suppression ratio up to 50 dB. Moreover, the feedback cavity can be monolithically integrated on the same chip than the laser, hence ensuring a low footprint of the complete system.

    Now, in the frame of a Starting Grant from the European Research Council: ERC-StG-2020 project COLOR’UP, we want to focus on the dynamics of multi-color lasers and investigate how they could be exploited for processing optical signals all-optically. In this context, we are looking for an excellent PhD candidate in photonics (duration = 48 months) to join our team.

    Starting date: December 2020 – February 2021.

    For more information, please contact Prof. M. Virte (martin.virte@vub.be).

    To apply, please send your detailed CV (including a copy of the Master diploma and a Transcript of records), letters of recommendation(s), any supporting documents demonstrating technical skills (thesis or scientific paper) and an application letter to Prof. M. Virte (martin.virte@vub.be) by e-mail before November 1st, 2020.

    If no suitable candidate has been found after the deadline, the position will remain open until it is fulfilled.

    If your application is selected based on the CV and accompanying documents, you will be invited for a teleconference interview and online tests.
