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. (D. Kalashnikov et al, Nature Photonics 10, 98 (2016); A. Paterova et al, Science Advances 6(44), eabd0460 (2020)).
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;
Study new type of nonlinear crystals to improve the performance of quantum interferometry technique;
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.
