The Quantum Imaging and Sensing Group in the Institute of Materials Research and Engineering is looking for a research scientist for a project in the field of quantum and nonlinear optics. The project is related to quantum interferometry of correlated photon pairs and its application in broadband infrared micro-spectroscopy of a specimen.
The successful candidate will carry out the following work:
- Develop new schemes of quantum interferometry for high resolution infrared micro-spectroscopy;
- Perform experimental realisation of the schemes in the optics laboratory;
- Perform simple automation of the experimental setup by software programming of scientific instruments, such as translation stages, sensors et al;
- Interpret and analyse obtained experimental results;
- Collaborate with a multi-disciplinary team of researchers.
1. PhD degree on quantum/nonlinear physics or in related fields;
2. Experimental work experience in quantum/nonlinear optics laboratory;
3. Experience in software programming (Labview and/or Python) would be a plus;
4. Proficient with Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel and Microsoft PowerPoint;
5. Ability to communicate effectively and clearly with the team.
