FP-40 Postgraduate Research Masters – Processing development for Photonic Integrated Circuits
Contract Type - Fixed Term/Full Time
Photonic Integrated Circuits (PICs) combine multiple photonic elements including lasers, modulators, amplifiers, couplers, and many other photonic devices in a single photonic chip. As one of the most reliable and promising solutions for optoelectronic devices owing to its higher efficiency, low energy consumption, and high operational speed, PICs are in high demand within a growing market segment. The global PIC market was valued US$496.09 million in 2017 and is estimated to reach US$1716.3 million by 2022. Due to the increasing requirements on PICs in their configuration as well as function, increasingly advanced processing techniques need to be developed.
Tyndall National Institute at University College Cork invite applications for a research masters position aimed at the development of the processing techniques for Photonic Integrated Circuits (PICs). The successful candidate will have completed an undergraduate degree or higher diploma in a physics or engineering related discipline. This position will require a candidate who will work on fabricating the photonic devices and PICs, and work on the related design and characterization.
