Active control of light at the nanoscale is an important and challenging goal to bring into reality the next-generation of spatial light modulators with sub-wavelength resolution.
This task is currently under development at the Institute of Materials Research and Engineering using the novel concepts of resonant dielectric nanoantennas, within the framework of an inter-disciplinary project involving different A*STAR RIs and Singaporean Universities.
We are looking for a strong candidate to work on the nanofabrication aspects of the project, who will be in charge of the nanofabrication processes as well as of the nanoscale characterization of fabricated samples.
A strong track of record in the fabrication of nanoantennas, nanophotonic and optoelectronic devices is preferable.
The job will include fabrication of nanoantennas based on semiconductor or/and dielectric materials to be integrated in switchable cells for active control of light propagation and characteristics at the nanoscale. The job will involve, as well, working as a part of a large team, including project members with different science and engineering backgrounds, such as electronics, advanced optical packaging and device engineering and system integration.
- PhD in physics or engineering
- 3 years experience (including PhD studies)
- The candidate should be an experimentalist with a strong expertise in nanofabrication techniques as well as in nanoscale characterization techniques such as Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM).
- The candidate should have, preferably, experience and knowledge in the area of nanophotonics, including nanoantennas and metasurfaces.
