Research group: 


We are looking for a capable and motivated candidate to join our research on integrated quantum and nonlinear photonics. The project aims to develop an integrated quantum photonic platform based on thin-film lithium niobate. Main device components to be developed include on-chip photon-pair sources, electro-optic modulators, frequency combs, and integrated superconducting single-photon detectors. The candidate will also have the freedom to explore other topics such as piezo-optomechanics, microwave-optical transduction, and superconducting circuits.

This position resides in the Quantum Technologies for Engineering (QTE) Department at the Institute of Materials Research and Engineering (IMRE). Successful candidates will be involved in, but not limited to, the following activities.
Design and fabrication of integrated photonic devices
Developing electrical poling process for lithium niobate
Performing optical and electrical characterization of fabricated devices

Ph.D. degree in Physics, Applied Physics, Electrical Engineering, Material Science and Engineering, or other relevant fields.
Experience in nano/micro-fabrication
Knowledge in nonlinear and/or quantum photonics
Programming skills (e.g., Python, MATLAB)
Ability to work as a team and communicate effectively
