PhD (doctoral) position on  “Frequency comb spectrometer on a photonic chip" in the group of Dr. Nathalie Picqué at the Max-Planck Institute of Quantum Optics near Munich, Germany

Within the Innovative Training Network MICROCOMB, our group explores new strategies to spectrometers on photonic chips. Laser frequency combs have revolutionized time and frequency metrology and are becoming enabling tools in many other applications. Our group has leading expertise in developing and using them for interferometry and high-resolution spectroscopy over broad spectral bandwidth. Frequency comb generators on a chip are an emerging technology which holds much promised for highly miniaturized instruments. The proposed work consists in evaluating the most promising technologies for selected applications and in developing new interferometers and new spectrometers based on state-of-the-art frequency comb generators on photonics chip.

Work Environment

The position will be based at the Max-Planck Institute of Quantum Optics in Garching near Munich (Germany). The working language at the Institute is English. We offer stimulating working conditions in a small and creative research group. Our laboratories are equipped with state-of-the-art instrumentation. The Max-Planck Institute of Quantum Optics provides a world-class scientific environment with outstanding scientists and visiting scholars. The project involves occasional travelling to conferences and workshops and international collaborations with research groups, who are amongst the leaders in their field.
