The project aims at realizing a germanium-on-silicon waveguide circuit that interfaces with a MidIR tunable laser and photodetector and that interacts with a water stream on top of the waveguide.
The goal is to spectroscopically analyze the water sample and detect the presence of contaminants. In order to increase the sensitivity of the system, the use of coatings on the waveguides that gather the contaminants will be studied.
This work will be carried out in the context of a Horizon2020 European project. Therefore, close interaction with other partners in the project will be required: i.e. the partners that realize the tunable laser source, the photodetectors, the coatings and the end-users of the system.
Profile of the candidate
We are looking for a highly motivated PhD candidate with a background in photonics and/or sensing with an interest to do research on silicon photonic integrated circuits for the spectroscopic analysis of drinking water.
