The Optical Nanomaterial Laboratory at the Physics Department of ETH Zurich is looking for a PhD student in integrated photonics.
This PhD project aims to fabricate miniature optoelectronic devices from lithium niobate thin films. Most current flat photonic structures are passive, here the goal is to create multifunctional active devices that can be actively tuned without changing the hardware design. The project involves the fabrication of optoelectronic devices by top-down methods, the optical characterization using custom-built setups, numerical modelling, and the development of photonic devices with nonlinear materials for sensing applications.
The successful candidate should be highly motivated and creative, should have a Master’s degree in physics, electric engineering, optics, material sciences, or related fields, and be interested in working in an interdisciplinary environment at the interface of nanotechnology, photonics and materials.
- Cover letter,
- Transcripts of Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees,
