BC-59- Postdoctoral Researcher (Silicon Photonics)
Contract: Full Time/Fixed Term - Full time – 3 years
We seek a postdoctoral researcher to design, build and demonstrate photonic circuits based on the heterogeneous integration of GaAs/InP materials onto silicon photonics platforms.
Silicon based photonics has emerged as the means by which the functional power of photonics (high bandwidth, wavelength division multiplexing, parallelism) can be crystallised and made into circuits akin to electronics. The crux is to integrate active elements (lasers, modulators, detectors, isolators etc) in a seamless manner. We think that the technique of transfer printing where materials and devices are engineered on one substrate before being transferred to the silicon with precise placement will be the key enabler for the mass production of such circuits. See cora.ucc.ie/handle/10468/4783.
The project is in collaboration with companies and with other teams at Tyndall. The project is part funded by Science Foundation Ireland.
The successful candidate must have a PhD in physics, electrical engineering, material science or a related field or demonstrated equivalent experience. The person must have a comprehensive understanding of semiconductor device physics as appropriate for advanced photonic devices. The candidate must have experience in modelling and measurements of waveguides, of measurement of semiconductor lasers. The person should be familiar with the fabrication of semiconductor devices in a clean room environment. The candidate must show initiative, teamwork with excellent writing and communication skills.
