FP-42 Research assistant – Processing development for advanced photonic integrated circuits
Job type: Full-time/Fixed Term
The integrated photonics group in Tyndall National Institute at University College Cork invite applications for a research assistant position aimed at the processing development for advanced integrated photonic circuits which will be used for the next generation of communication network. The successful candidate will have completed a degree in a physics, engineering, computer science or related discipline. This position is primarily concerned with developing the novel quantum well intermixing technique to enable the monolithic integration of the photonic circuits based on single epitaxial growth, as well as developing the air-bridge structure which is essential for the high-speed components. This position will also work with other researchers in the IPG group on fabricating and testing the devices and integrated circuits which will be delivered to the SFI and industrial projects. This will include both fabrication and characterization.
Academic/Educational requirements: A good undergraduate or higher diploma degree in physics, electronic engineering, or computer science.
Functional area: Physics, Electronic engineering, computer science
